The food looked great and tasted great. The service was efficient. Many thanks to the attentive waitress who noticed we were cold and went and got a gas heater to keep ius warm. A real joy to find a cafe, the quality of such you would find in the central city, in Manulau.

I went to Urban Soul with a friend and her 10 year old daughter today. I had heard some mixed 'word-of-mouth' reviews recently but have always enjoyed my visits to Urban Soul so decided to give it a go. I was not disappointed. The counter service was friendly and efficient. The indoor parts of the cafe were quite busy, and... More

Beautifully presented and equally delicious breakfast in a bright, open setting. Decor is tasteful with interesting & surprising details. Our group of 11 went here 7 days out of our 14 day stay and would have gone every day had it been in our travel budget. Highly recommend the French Toast, topped with blueberry, almonds, creme fraiche and mint or... More

Took mum out for lunch here last year in December 2014. Great environment, and the food is really tasty. The service is fast, and really well organised. nice garden bar area, everything is well layed out, from the food, to the table settings. Will definitely be back.

What a great set up! Walked in the door and the place was packed, it was a Friday morning so that was expected. What I assume was the manager took our order and said 15 minutes max, good was out in 10 and immaculately presented the coffee was delicious also. Overall I would definitely come back, staff were so professional... More
