We were taken here by a relative for an early lunch - something I highly recommend - be early that is! By 12.30 the line was out the door and trays of food were being scurried out to delivery vehicles. You have the choice to select something from the food on display, pay then take your table number to your... More

This is a regular lunch / coffee stop and provides just the right environment to sit back in comfort for a while. The food, cakes and coffee are great too. Recommended to anyone pulling up in Manukau.

Came here for lunch with a group of colleagues and was pleasantly surprised at the place. Would return for sure. Service - Friendly service and very efficient. Food - The corn fritters, steak sandwich and chicken & Brie fougasse were nicely done. The chips was crunchy and tasty. Steak was nicely cooked and the breads were fresh. It was a... More

Went in at midday Thursday for lunch. It was very busy and a table was hard to find. The cabinet food was easy to see. Apparently, there is a limited menu but not clear where they hide them. You find your own table and queue at the counter to select and pay. Excellent service, food and coffee good and reasonably... More

All our friends like this place. A very nice cafe, with very good coffee and a nice selection of foods. Really cool art deco design layout, trendy, and friendly too. A really nice place to go with friends to chill out and relax

I had an early morning meeting in Manukau and not knowing the area well, used trip advisor to search for somewhere to stop for breakfast. Found Urban Soul and thinking I was early as café was not due to open for another 15 mins found a park and waited for it to open. Quickly realised that the place opens earlier... More

While the food was passable - two of the four in our party were pleased with their food, the service left a lot to be desired. Plates of food were passed in front of other guests rather than the waitress walking further along the table. The squid was tough and the cabinet pie too spicy and had been reheated to... More

When Urban Soul opened it was a relief to have a consistently decent cafe in South Auckland. The pickings were slim. But Urban Soul has been a familiar gathering place for me, my family, colleagues and friends for many years now, and I'm NEVER disappointed. Great selection of food, beautifully presented, catering for carnivores, vegetarians and vegans! The coffee is... More

We went to Urbansoul during our weekend away to watch Bruce Springsteen, on Saturday morning, and returned Sunday morning (more like brunch time) - both breakfast's were undeniably delicious! Fresh meat, fresh eggs, fast service, fantastic coffee, overall brilliant!
