You need this cafe in your life, move directly to this cafe, do not pass go and do not collect $200 Seriously though, great fresh food, awesome coffee, and fantastic service, I am thinking of moving house just to be closer to this cafe.

Visited with me wife and 8 yr old daughter mid morning on a Sat. No problem getting a table. Lovely relaxed and friendly atmosphere and pleasant surroundings. Great variety of choices on the menu although options will vary depend a little on when you visit. Both went for the black pudding salad and daughter had the linguine. Salad was beautifully... More

Four of us had lunch here today. Lovely busy little cafe. Good choice of light lunches and sandwiches. Three of us had a warm goats cheese and beetroot salad - delicious. The other one had Spanish omelette. Really lovely

Soul Food is a lovely little cafe on the Ormeau Rd. Excellent for soup ad sandwiches. They do the best goats cheese salad and specials are always delicious. Just wish they would open in the evenings. We need a few more night time venues and BYOs are always really popular.
