Black n Brew celebrates 7 years, adds BYOB

The cafe Black n Brew marked seven years this week at its bedazzled corner overlooking the fountain at 1523 E Passyunk Ave. And to celebrate, they’ve started BYOB service.

Remember the sunshine? This will be a nice day-drinking spot once the weather gets back to being like this.

Hours will stay the same, 7 a.m. to 5 p.m. daily, so this will be a rare breakfast/lunch/brunch BYOB. Co-owner Colleen DeCesare says customers ask fairly regularly about having a drink with lunch, so they decided to accommodate.

“We are fans of The Bottle Shop and would like to partner up in some way,” said DeCesare, who noted that patrons were always allowed to bring wine to art openings. “I think it would be pretty cool to get a six pack in the warmer weather, grab one of our outside tables and enjoy our fare.”


DeCesare said they’re building a collection of proper glassware, so you can start bringing in wine, beer or champagne (they sell juice for mimosas).

Congratulations, ladies.

    Sounds great if they don’s allow “walk away beer drinking” and the bottles end up broken on the street or in the parking lot. Also, is a byo allows to server outside.
