Popped in for a late lunch. Tasty and massive salad (asian spring) and good sandwiches. Options to sit in a shaded area by the sidewalk or inside. One of the better looking lunch spots in down town Lakeland. The espressos were pretty decent too.

My daughter and son-in-law took me to Black 'n Brew after we walked the downtown farmer's market. I had the ham and Swiss croissant and was very pleased with the flavor and value.

We enjoyed lunch on a Saturday. I had the salad & margherita flat bread it was delicious. My daughter had the turkey sandwich & the bread was so fresh! My husband had a the broccoli and cheese soup and enjoyed every bite. We highly recommend eating here. They also had some scrumptious looking deserts but I passed this time 😉

What a quaint little place. I love it. It's in downtown lakeland across from the beautiful park. The sandwiches are yummy and made fresh. If you haven't been here, your missing out.

This restaurant started last year and has become a favorite among the locals of Lakeland. The food is very tasty, the service is very good, and the prices are very reasonable. It is one of the best places to try when in downtown Lakeland, FL.

Really unique bistro. They offer a great selection of food. I'm in love with their lobster bisque soup. A little pricey, but well worth every penny. And the ambiance of the place is wonderful.

The food here was very good. The soup is served in a good size bowl. The type of soup varies on each day. There are nearby shops to enjoy also. Restaurant Appearance - Cool looking setting with interior brick walls, modern Reservations - don’t think so Staff - Wait to be seated - Order food at counter and self seating... More

Excellent Coffees, I generally get the Mediterranean salad, generous and healthy with good olives. Staff is exceptionally nice. Service is super fast. Their menu is interesting, they have special chai and things I haven't tried.
