the décor of this café is lovely, it is fresh, comfortable and inviting however the food is disappointing and often the service is slow. If you just want a cake or muffin you will be fine and enjoy it but if you want anything heated up you will be disappointed.

If you're looking for good food and you're in the Manukau area then I would suggest you try this place out. Hidden away from the main shopping areas and tucked behind a bank and petrol station you could be mistaken that this unique gem is part of the bank itself unless you drive past it slowly. Turning up for brunch... More

Huge array of ever changing cabinet food. Over 30 brunches with friends and family over the years and only one below par meal and they handled that very professionally. The food they do for private functions is also amazing.

Food was delicious had the salmon eggs bene, steak sandwich and BLT. Portion sizes were fairly big. Only down side was the service I received from the waiters that day was unattentive not friendly and service with a frown, maybe because I was brown and didn't look the part. But hey I walked out and paid my bill of 150?... More

This place is busy every time I come in for a coffee or some breaky to go. I see "Reserved" on many tables and don't know how it keeps that warm, french, high quality vibe throughout the day with such a high turnover! The food always looks amazing and I almost have to keep my eyes away! What I have... More

I have been to Urban soul a number of times over the years and really enjoyed the food and service. Although I had not visited the cafe over the last year I suggested a group of 10 of us have our Christmas brekkie there last week. Unfortunately I was really disappointed as the overall the quality of the food was... More

My friends and I booked a table on Saturday 7/11 for a friends birthday. There was seven of us. We arrived before 9am and left after 11am. We all enjoyed ourselves and the food was good. The staff were helpful. It was a busy place but it didn't fill up the seats where we were - out in the conservatory.... More
