While the rest of my family slept in on a recent trip to Boston, I walked the half mile from our hotel to this funky little café. It serves yummy pastries and cooked to order breakfasts. I really appreciated the option of a one-egg with toast meal. They had a wide selection of teas in addition to coffee, hot chocolate, and bottled drinks.

The service was good and provided with a smile. The décor is fun: mismatched chairs and salvaged architecture with a kid-sized table in the back for younger customers. Located just steps from the Brookline Station T-stop.

Loved my Egg and Gluten Free bread breakfast. Stopped in on our way to a meeting. The food was great and we had service with a smile. Very gluten free friendly. I for sure would come back. Hard to find great food and good service at one place.

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!

Be it a phenomenal brownie, an incredible Persian dish, or a warm cup of coffee or tea, Kookoo provides the best alternative to coffee chains and delis that line Brookline streets. The atmosphere in this small, Euro cafe is one that you do want to not leave. Hunker down and enjoy the music. Meet a friend and chat over tea. Enjoy some of the yummy breakfast items, wraps, soups, and pastries - all homemade, fresh, and delicious. Owner's Elie and Ali have created a fantastic spot for the Village and one that should be visited by many - just hop off of the D Line and stop in, Brookline Village stop.
