Not much from the outside but what's inside deserves its high rating.
We were told there was a half hour wait but it turned out to be much shorter. They use a notification system where they take you're cell phone number and text you when your table is ready. That way you can go out a enjoy the funky shops around South Congress and not have to stay within a certain range.
We sat down about 1pm and had both brunch and lunch options. I got the blackened tuna tacos (way better than standard fish tacos), my wife got the brisket hash (she loved it), and my girls got the burger with white cheddar ("awesome") and carrot cake French toast (use, you read that right - it's almost like dessert for breakfast). All were way above average and well presented.
Our server could not have been nicer and the manager came to our table just because and to make sure we were satisfied.
Did I mention the house special Bloody Mary? You will be doing yourself a disservice if you don't have one or two. Tito's vodka and a spicy kick.
You won't be disappointed with SoCo Cafe.
