Soho South Cafe has been made famous by its patrons as one of Savannah's staple weekly lunch and Sunday brunch spots. Opening its doors in 1997, Soho South Cafe is located in the heart of Historic Downtown Savannah, appropriately named after the iconic New York City neighborhood for its proximity to nearby shops and entertainment venues. Built originally as an automotive service station in 1945, the building sat vacant for a number of years before the restaurant's original owners acquired the space and transformed it into a restaurant. Most recently, the restaurant was acquired by Daniel Reed Hospitality and remodeled to make improvements to the existing model which represents the latest adaptation as it stands today. The design of the restaurant incorporates elements of iconic, archetypal New York City. The quirky, eclectic esthetic lends a sense of humor to the monumental, vast interior space which includes the buildings original exposed elements such as the steel windows, iron trusses, and solid wooden garage doors. The overall atmosphere results in a casual dining experience that works perfectly for lunch and private events.

I love this place. It is an old garage that has been renovated into a wonderful place to eat. My all-time favorite is the salmon BLT. I keep going back for it. It is amazing, but I can honestly say I have tried all the other dishes my family members orders and the crab cake with grits and the salads... More

We were in the historic district and stopped in. One of a kind atmosphere-loved it. The grilled cheese tomotoe soup perfect. Generous portions-had my server take away so I'd quit eating! We were there on a Sunday so mimosas have to wait until "after church gets out". Could use more bathrooms. The server made an iced coffee for my guest... More

Morn of us in the extended family came here for brunch". Cannot say enough good about the entire experience. Setting is industrial and shabby chic; tables well placed, service attentive and not hurried. And then there is the creative menu... Food was amazing... Not one complaint about any of the meals. The chicken pot pie was a huge hit--flaky, buttery... More

Picked SoHo South at the last minute. I called and secured Sunday Brunch reservations the day before. We walked over and had a fantastic brunch. Our waiter was a bit cold at first and finally warmed up as the meal progressed. We would definitely go back!

I wanted to love this little restaurant when I walked in, but the food was just disappointing. Our waiter was really kind and accomodating, which makes this a 4 vs. 3 star. Cute place, but the food doesn't measure up.

we chanced upon this place - we were driving back from Tybee Island to Atlanta and wanted to stop for lunch on a sunday afternoon. It was close to 1 PM EST. Based on recommendation from our GPS we stopped here. The place was packed. We did not have reservations and hence we had a 30 minute wait. Once seated... More
