This Cafe reminds one of the old "Cheers" tv series where "everybody knows your name" Great menu and great food. Warm, friendly management and wait staff who do remember your name. Service and food are excellent. Sound level is good even though there is a bar at one end of the dining area.

We shared the Smoked Salmon with Goat Cheese, Humus, and the Spicy Feta spreads and they were each delicious served with toasted bread, carrots and cucumbers. I had the Seared Salmon which was...

Food was fresh and a nice little bar. Walkable to the inner harbor and fed hill area. Good place for a quick fresh meal. The owners are there and make sure you are taken care of.

Visiting Baltimore from Connecticut. I'm so glad I trusted the on-line reviews. This was a fantastic experience! From the moment we stepped into the quaint dining room, we were greeted with enthusiasm. Began with the rosemary hummus app. WOW! The flavor was perfect, and an unexpected delight was the veggies served with it were marinated and very tasty. The bread... More

Hip but cozy at the same time. This is the type of restaurant that infuses comfort food with a fresh face...and does it with style.

Food was healthy, fresh and had unique combinations. Fun, trendy atmosphere. Make a reservation so that you can get a table this place is small but that adds to the vitality of the restaurant. This is in a happening location in Baltimore. You could even walk from the Inner Harbor, all be it a healthy walk.

$20.14 for a three course dinner was a bargain. SoBo has an excellent chef! Appetizers of mussels were plentiful and delicious. The mac and cheese was generous and scrumptious. Grape leaves had the taste of real lamb but were small and only two to a plate. Entrees: excellent salmon on white bean puree and salmon, a thick perfectly done pork... More
