Sadly the Soul Food Cafe closed this week. We shall miss you Sandy. I believe there will be new owners but let's wait and see if and when and how good they will or not be.

My husband have been a couple of times for lunch .We really like the mushrooms on toast. The coffee is really good. The owner/ staff are nice. It's a funky wee place & lot cheaper than other cafes in congleton. 😊

Soul Food Cafe has come to be known, quite rightfully, as a place where every delicious plateful of food is served with a warm welcome, and where the atmosphere is a character in itself. Decked out with vintage memorabilia, and wallpapered with retro comic book...More
