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.

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

I live in walking distance to Sobo, so I come at least once a month, more if family is in town. The staff know me and my family by sight, always asking how we are doing. It is extremely friendly and relaxed here. The food is absolutely amazing!! Some of the best in the neighborhood, especially for the price. The... More

Never fails to please, and seems to do so effortlessly. Even the house salad showcases surprising juxtapositions of flavor and texture. Comfort yourself with the roasted chicken on perfectly dressed greens or the insanely good BLT on a house made biscuit. Inventive cocktails and aps like the feta spread or luscious mussels make for a lovely happy hour.

This place has wonderful food and wine and beer. The space is a moderate size and can be noisy if it is crowded. They do take reservations. It is also in a cool neighborhood which made me feel younger.

We have eaten here 3 times and my husband particularly loves the mussels. Warm comfortable atmosphere and inventive menu. Lots of regulars. Special features various nights of the week if you are watching your budget.

I have had brunch here a few times. The menu is both creative and varied including a few vegetarian options. First off, very friendly staff, clean and inviting dining area. We were seated quickly even without a reservation, but the place filled up quickly. Drinks available from the bar but our party just ordered coffee. The coffee was great and... More
