Was craving Korean and stopped in at Sole Cafe on Snelling. Great soups! Perfect for a cold winter day. Staff very friendly.

The Korean Seafood Pancake and the grilled salt mackerel were excellent - exceptionally great tasting fish. The chef came and answered my gluten free concerns. She knew what she was talking about, both with the gluten and how she made authentic Korean food. No doubt...More

It was the first time we ever tried a Korean Restaurant. We loved it and the wait staff was very helpful in explaining different dishes to us. Great lunch specials and great prices. Great service as well.
