“Friendly,funky and good food”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 18, 2013

A group of us came here for lunch after a morning field trip at the recommendation of our group leader. The menu is loaded with healthy choices and our food was delicious. I had the half a sandwich and choice of second item option and my grilled cheese sandwich for grownups was excellent. I tend to order vegetarian chili whenever it appears on a menu, and this version was exactly to my taste. I savored every spoonful, and others in our party said they really liked their chili, also.

This is not a fancy place - the decor could be called "early hippie" and gave me, as an out of town visiter, the sense that I'd discovered a wonderful and offbeat alternative to fast food.

We plan to return to this area next year, and we will be coming back to this fun bistro for another hearty, nourishing and tasty meal.

“Pricey, small but interesting”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 8, 2013

Healthy choices, but pricey for what you get. Especially when there is no table service and you bus your own when finished. Outside courtyard nice when live music is featured. More of a beer hangout for college kids.

“Absolute worst service ever.”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 17, 2013

Stood around the bar trying to get a drink for nearly twenty minutes and was completely ignored the entire time. They most certainly cater to their regulars first, which means if it's your first visit, don't expect service at all.

“Never met a stranger!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 16, 2012

As a single female travelling alone, I felt safe and welcomed as part of a new family there at Soul Infusion! The bartenders/servers Brian and Martin were part comedy and part intellectual besides working their tails off to make everyone happy. The food is outstanding, they have IPA beer and good wine and of course a wide selection of gourmet teas! The atmosphere is hippy dippy and you'll never be bored with the eclectic local bands, characters you'll meet and the amazingly social locals. I will definitely be back!
