Friends recommended Black & Brew. We were in Lakeland and decided to have lunch here. So glad we did. Nice varied menu, good food, fast service, and dessert picked directly from the glass display case made for a wonderful lunch. A subdued patter of sounds...More

A fun place to stop in Lakeland when you need a lighter meal, Black and Brew's environment is a mix of local and upscale hipster. The food is pricey but very tasty.

We stopped by here for a coffee. We enjoyed the iced coffee with vanilla flavouring. Our friend had a regular coffee. Nice atmosphere and recommended for either coffee break or a bite to eat. We didn't order from the menu, but the food looked great.

Everything was mediocre. It was crowded, so it seemed an excellent choice. Some of the salad greens were old and wilted, sandwiches were nothing above ordinary, service ordinary-won’t be going back.

Yes, there are a few outside tables. I've seen others with their dogs sitting so I would say they are welcome if well behaved.
