It's a tiny little convenient spot next to the Brookline Village Greenline stop - food was fine, service friendly, there is some seating available - it took too long for a grab-n-go spot and the grape leaves were made on demand - they may want to prepare some in advance to be able to provide more quickly.

A very cute, funky little neighborhood place. Mostly vegetarian. Pistachio muffins were great and the egg/cheese brioche were fresh and very tasty. Coffee was also very good. Service was quick and friendly. They were doing a brisk business on a Saturday morning.

I consider myself a true breakfast connoisseur :) and have tried probably every place in Brookline. Kookoo has the best coffee and food of any other place around! Everything is incredibly fresh and tasty. I don't drink regular milk - and Kookoo has a variety of other kinds (almond, soy). The service is great too. Take your breakfast to go... More

KooKoo's -- a mash-up of a 60's Greenwich Village coffee shop with a SF Mission neighborhood back-to-nature-food eatery --serves novel, delicious variations on familiar breakfast and lunch fare. Seating is miniscule; mamas with little kids abound sometimes; and the furniture appears to be Goodwill-Industry rejects. But the atmosphere is lively, the food is fun and very satisfying, and one feels... More

This family run coffee shop is a gem and you have a major decision when parking close by makes resisting so much more difficult, The service is friendly and you support a family run business. You can't go wrong when you drop in.

Love this little cafe. Tucked around the corner from Harvard St in Brookline Village, this casual cafe offers very good food and especially vegan and vegetarian offerings.

I love Kookoo's Cafe for so many reasons. There are little nik naks tucked in and out of every corner, a fabulous staff that is super friendly and ready to help, and the delicious iced teas! I highly recommend the Pomegranate Wu Wei iced tea as well as the Ginger iced tea. I could easily drink three in a row... More

Went to this cafe with the girl and I.. And quite surprised! Little cafe place with lots to look at.. The place was happening and felt comfortable even though it became crowded at one point! Limited seating but there's plenty of food and coffee choices and combinations! Very gluten/vegetarian/vegan/hipster friendly!
