Excellent brunch

One of the best brunch spots around Baltimore! A little more pricy but worth it! Very good service, great location, and even better food and mimosas.

The food, ambiance and service was perfect. Such an enjoyable dining experience! By the way, the Mac and Cheese was the best ever...sorry Mom.

Everything was absolutely amazing, right down to their drinks and the bread. Everything is made from scratch and fantastic. A great option for me as a vegetarian and non-vegetarians as well. I will definitely be back!

We are big fans of SoBo cafe, where the staff is gracious and friendly, the service excellent, as is the food. But we do wish that some "softening" of the noise level could be instituted so that conversations didn't have to be shouted across the table!

Airy and cool on a warm summer day in fun Federal Hill, we enjoyed the roasted chicken and smoked salmon salads. Really fresh, really good, with house made dressings. Generous portions for a moderate price. Refreshing wine spritzer -- white wine, ginger beer and lime. Responsive service. Our server checked in with us several times during the meal but was... More

My Brother, Sister-in-law and I went to SoBo on a Saturday over Memorial Day weekend for brunch and we are glad we did. The food was very good and prices were reasonable. I ordered the crab cake Benedict and liked it. Our server was also very friendly (I forget her name, I believe it was Allison maybe). Overall a very... More

Dined here on a weeknight with 4 coworkers. 1 vegetarian, 1 gluten intolerant, and 3 omnivores. Everyone has great selections and raved about the food. The Brussels sprouts were super. Service was a tad slow, otherwise would've gotten a 5.

Had amazing chicken with salad here, everything tastes so fresh. Great little place! Our waiter was very friendly and helpful with the menu. One colleague was happy to find that they have vegan options here. They also are sensitve to gluten free diners as well. Everyone enjoyed their meal - each one looking more delicious than the next.

Our friends recommended SoBo Cafe, and wanted to take us there. A short walk from parking behind Shofer's Furniture, the restaurant is very close to Cross Street Market. Walking up the short stairs to the cafe, we were greeted right away to the open space dining room that shares the bar space. The dining floor is one open space -... More
