I've been trying to be a vegetarian for one week and went to Black and Brew to try their paleo plate (minus the bacon). Service was fast and friendly, and the food tasted good too. Nice little coffee shop local vibe.

Don't you hate it when you go to your neighborhood/corner coffeeshop, hungry for breakfast but they only have little danishes/muffins? Well this is your spot. I love the casual, order at the counter approach, but without losing the service and quality of a full service...More

Stopped by for lunch with the family. Ordered a large portion of hummus with pita and vegetables, goat cheese salad, Caesar salad, and a very good chicken pesto sandwich. All food very good. Popular South Philly cafe with plenty of locals.
