My spouse and I and our friend had breakfast here shortly before we left Philadelphia, and it was a good send-off. We lucked out to arrive when things were quiet, because a line-up started shortly after. Good bagels, good eggs and stuff on bagels, and...More

Went on an early Sunday afternoon, and got a table, YAY. The staff was super sweet. The hash browns were YUM. French Toast was good. So many things on the menu to try. Highly Recommend!

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.

Black and Brew is nice comfortable neighbourhood cafe. Great for breakfast. Espresso is excellent, outdoor seating is a bonus.
