"Black N Brew is one of my favorite coffee and breakfast spots."
....a laid back café with generous coffee servings and the best brunch around.
"Coffee so good. Menu makes me insane with glee. The space induces a strange relaxation response. Regular customers are folk that make me happy - everyone from hipsters to gymgoing muscleboys.
I have been making morning pilgrimages here with a friend almost weekly - and we are kept happy with coffee, soy shakes, and brunch fare.'
"The coffee tastes great, but it doesn't stop there. Black N Brew has a full service menu and wait staff to accomodate both breakfast and lunch with new specials every week. Don't miss the famous Black N Brew 'Cakes with butterscotch syrup or the Breakfast Burrito stuffed with cheese, sour cream, eggs, tomatoes, and guacamole. Yum!"
I love the food here and it seems like they have something for everyone. (BLTs! French toast! Omelets! Smoothies! Toys! Wi-fi! Outdoor seating! A really tall bar that makes you feel gigantic!).
