Fantastic coffee & food

I pop in every weekday morning for my caffeine fix & usually a bit of cake. Have taken friends & family here for meals as well. Food is always of the highest quality. Staff are extremely friendly. If you're in South Auckland then this is a must visit.

Nice surroundings-coffee ok but a tad weak for me. Wait staff pleasant. Food is generous and well cooked. A good choice when you have to meet in Manukau.

Lovely décor and roomy, and it was certainly busy therefore popular. Our meals and drinks were pretty good, although my friend's mince was a tad... More

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
