Black & Brew Coffee House & Bistro will soon have a trio of locations running in Lakeland

Black & Brew Coffee House & Bistro has been a staple to Lakeland’s historic downtown for 16 years. Now, a third Black & Brew location is set to open later this year in South Lakeland.

The new location will take over the old south-side Krispy Kreme location. Black & Brew owner Chris McArthur announced on social media that the new location for the Bistro will include a drive-thru, making it the first Black & Brew location to include a more convenient way to get your favorite beverage, pastry or entree. McArthur also shared that the site will include indoor and covered patio seating for 60 visitors.

The new location is set to include fan favorites from the other two Bistro locations along with some new menu items exclusive to the south-side location. A Chimichurri Steak Bowl, Mojo Citrus Chicken Bowl, and a Yellow Curry Cauliflower Bowl are all items that are being workshopped for the new location now.

The other two Black & Brew locations include the one near Munn Park at 205 E. Main St., which first opened for business 16 years ago and the second location, at the Lakeland Public Library at 100 Lake Morton Drive.
