Tried this cafe for a solo lunch based on reviews and wasn't disappointed. Had the veggie sandwich on some delicious homemade bread. Also enjoyed the well-priced (and well-poured!) wine flight.

I agree with other reviewers that I'd ideally give 3.5 stars. First, the cafe is very cute--tastefully decorated with local art that you can purchase and a very welcoming atmosphere. The service was very attentive and not overbearing. The wine bottle special was a good...More

We pride ourselves on preparing our from-scratch menu with fresh seasonal ingredients and a whole lot of flavor. Our cozy, intimate dining room is the perfect setting to enjoy a seasonal dish and a glass of carefully chosen wine or beer. A favorite among neighbors and visitors, we go out of our way to make everyone feel at home. Weather permitting; delight in dining al fresco at one of our outdoor tables. We serve lunch daily, brunch on Saturdays and Sundays, dinner seven days and “SoBo Hour” at the bar and outdoor tables Monday through Friday, 5 pm to 7 pm. We’re a short walk from the stadiums and the inner harbor. SoBo Cafe follows sustainable practices by composting food waste and by recycling glass, metal, plastic & paper products. We look forward to your next visit.
