I enjoyed a very tasty beef focaccia in a quiet cozy corner. It was nice to get away from the city crowds for my lunch break. I will be back to sample some more delicious food.

Soul Soup has been a regular haunt of mind for a couple of years - and it continues to shine. The coffee is great, the food warms the heart and the service is wonderful.
