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!

I have been several times to Urban Soul. My last visit was a year ago and I feel that the standard of food has really dropped since then.The coffee was bitter. The staff were excellent and replaced our food from the cabinet which was cold and hard- salmon and bagel etc. The hot option from the menu had plenty of... More

Breakfast was yum but expensive and hubby was still hungry when we left. Slices and cakes are gorgeously decadent. Nice coffee but could've passed on the fancy glass. Nice place to go for a treat.

This was our first visit to Urban Soul and it certainly won't be our last! What a great find! Staff were very welcoming when we came to the door and the interior design is both tasteful, attractive and inviting. What a stunning cafe! The selection of food was awesome. The counter food was mouth-watering and the menu choices were both... More
