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

After a fabulous brunch here with a large family group a few months ago, we decided to grab a late lunch/coffee here with our son who was visiting from Melbourne. What a disappointment!! Maybe it was because the kitchen had closed - though the café itself didn't close for another hour or so - and we had to select from... More

A great cafe in the Westpac Hub within Manukau CBD. Meals are great and atmosphere is terrific. Music on Friday nights.

Usually I travel into the city to go to and get a great Brunch, however over the last month I have visited this place lots! Their menu is great and has pescaterian options and plenty of vegetarian ones as well. The french potato cake with Salmon was amazing and the poached eggs were cooked to perfection.

We had a 50th Birthday at Urban soul, the staff were very friendly and helpful, and Sophia is the go to person when it comes to arranging functions. Overall everyone enjoyed it, the food was spectacular and the atmosphere really tops it off. Thank you Urban soul

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.

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
