Service was quick and efficient even with a Sunday morning crowd. A second register was available when groups were gathering. The food was outstanding...eggs benedict and the mushrooms. We had to share due to food envy. The restaurant has many options for the diner with comfortable inside and outside eating areas. Do yourself a favour and visit this fine restaurant.

I am so glad I was introduced to this place some time ago. We went for brunch after Saturday rugby while visiting Auckland. It was very busy, staff were very helpful in sourcing a table for us. We ordered from the menu. The kumara rosti was fab. Also endorsed was the lamb pie. Extremely efficient service, and the counter food,... More

Urban Soul is a must go place for lunch if you are in the Manukau area. They have an extensive menu, as well as a daily cabinet to choose from. Coffee is excellent. The restaurant is a blend of inside and outside (covered) areas so you can choose where you sit. You have to order at the counter, but this... More

This is a popular cafe where sometimes it pays to book a table when you are a group of four or more,the food selection from either the cabinet which is always full of fresh baking and other tasty treats, or you have the set menu offering a good choice for either breakfast or lunch they also serve up great coffee

I had the chicken burger and my partner had the crispy chicken noodle salad. Large portions and plenty of avocado which pleasantly surprised us both at this time of year. Coffee was excellent. Location is easy to get to and lots of parking. Definitely going back!
