Black and Brew has been one of my favourite place for launch in Lakeland. They have very nice solutions, the quality of the food is good and you can be served quickly. The price is very good!

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.
