I would add Kafdrop to your go-to list as far as Kafka web UI goes. It shows you broker stats, let's you browse topics, view consumer groups and their lag. It runs in Docker, and it's completely free (Apache licensed).

If you need a CLI, KafkaCat is definitely it. Much more usable than the console tools that come with Kafka.
