There are no better coffee-and places than the KooKoo Cafe. Conveniently located right across the street from the T, in the heart of Brookline Village, this place serves delicious coffee beverages and terrific teas of all varieties. They have excellent sandwiches, salads and soups (made from scratch -- as their sign says) and special dishes of the day as well. My wife and I eat here all the time, meeting for breakfast and lunch with each other and friends -- and we've never had a bad experience. The staff are enormously friendly, helpful, attentive, and welcoming. One warning -- the place is enormously popular and has very limited seating. So send a scout along ahead of time if you're going to meet during peak breakfast or lunch times -- to nab you a table. Or, as many do, plan to take food out -- and eat somewhere else. Truly, I have never been disappointed in 30 or so visits. Great place!
