Mum and me

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.

In fact it is right up there with my favs in Auckland full stop. It is a large, light & airy cafe. Beautifully & tastefully decorated - a lovely space. There are many... More

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

With all the great food places in South Auckland Urban Soul is a great upmarket cafe for entertaining family friends and work meetings. The menu varies each season with modern foods from the 'bar' or direct from the menu. The decor is funky fresh and classic with th eprices a little higher than other places but still excellent over all.

Fantastic selection of food - that changes daily; sweet treats that are delicious and taste healthy; awesome coffee made by the best baristas I've ever had the... More

We go here for brunch or breakfast regularly. Food is always great. Coffee perfect. Staff can be hit and miss but they are usually flat out as the place is always packed. Lovely decor. Easy parking.

I go here often as it’s a very handy location and convenient stopping point between business meetings in South Auckland. It’s very close to motorway on and off ramps. There’s good parking, lots of room but it does get very busy at lunchtime. Importantly there’s a table near a powerpoint for laptop and phone charging. One time recently the staff... More

This smart cafe would have to be one of the best I have ever been too and the visual display of food in the cabinet on entry was incredible.Staff were exceptional, the decor superb and they cater apparently to functions like weddings as well and one can only imagine how good that would be. My son and I had eggs... More
