2nd visit back and I must go more!

Incredible fresh squeezed blood-orange Mimosas + eggs Benedict from out of this world = every reason to go and to keep going! Attentive service, nice setting, reasonably priced.

Cosy decor, great food and personal attention from staff to make sure you get exactly what you want. They are flexible about special requests and very patient. Some of the food is world class, the rest at least really, really good. Great service.

This is a very nice restaurant in Federal Hill. I had a wonderful brunch with my daughter. Everything was fresh and delicious. The presentation was perfection. They have a pretty decor and the staff was very friendly. We will be back.

Starting with the very friendly staff to the awesome food this place is the place to go in Baltimore. The fresh cinnamon rolls and zucchini bread melt in our mouth. The eggs Benedict was superb. They make even simple eggs taste delicious.

We visited Baltimore for a wedding. We came a day early just to check out the city. Our friend recommended the SoBo Cafe and we could not have been happier. We just happened to be here during restaurant week. The food was fantastic. The atmosphere was great. The staff was wonderful. Check this place out.

Friends took us here while visiting Baltimore. Small, but inviting with a wonderful menu. The appetizer spreads were outstanding and they had a variety of meals to satisfy air, land, and vegetable tastes. The Korean Chicekn Fried Steak with Kimchee was a knockout. Restaurant made breads and desserts also were outstanding.

I visited the SoBo cafe with family on a whim based on the website description. The restaurant has a small sitting area but with plenty of natural lighting. Every item we ordered from appetizer to dessert was delicious. It's like the chef slapped on an extra serving of deliciousness. Service was great and we had a very attentive hostess. Very... More

We had our first brunch experience there today. Absolutely divine. The food was so good,me are going back next Saturday for sure. You MUST get there early and get a cinnamon roll. You won't believe how good they are. This place should not be missed. OMG the roasted banana pancakes with peanut butter whipped cream.

Celebrating two birthdays together can be difficult, but at Sobo menu offered something for everyone especially the roasted chicken, starting with the three spreads House Smoked Salmon, Rosemary Hummus, Spicy Feta which was accented by a great selection of pickled vegetables.
