I have eaten here several times - mostly for lunch. Excellent food quality and choices. Even have gluten free items. Love the atmosphere, service and vibe of the place. Highly recommend.

I discovered Sola when meeting a friend from Wake Forest for brunch. The cafe is so awesome! I ordered coffee and a small omelette with bacon, salsa, greens, etc. It was so good! The vibe here is great! I'll be back!

Sola has a different vibe to it. It is local, personal and easy going. The place is relaxing, social and lovable. People come for the atmosphere and the personable service. This a cafe not like any other. The batistas are also great.
