We certainly for breakfast on our fist day in Auckland and it was great. Lovely atmosphere and very friendly staff. We were a little confused at first when we entered then realised we had to order at the counter then they bring the food to the table. We each had the Bacon Eggs Benedict with a side of hashbrowns and... More

Nothing nicer on a wet,grey Saturday than great coffee at Urban Soul Feeling spoilt with lovely freesias on the table and a delicious orange, port and cranberry scone turning the humble scone into something sensational. Not that I could detect much port but it was delicious all the same. Reasonably priced, lovely surroundings tastefully decorated. Dine in or out Parking... More

Looking at the other reviews, I may have just been unlucky. Went for a business lunch, the place was very busy. Only one of the credit card machines were working, creating long cues to pay at the same till as orders were being taken. I ordered the burger, expensive at over $20 and small. The worst was that the burger... More

I have been here a lot but most recently, with colleagues for lunch and we were blown away by how fast our food came out, especially because there were about 10 of us and the food came within 10-15mins of ordering. We all ordered something different and it was all cooked perfectly and nicely presented- everyone thoroughly enjoyed their meals... More

Went for brunch a couple of times. So many interesting dishes it was hard to make a choice. We all eventually decided on Eggs Benedict which were served with perfectly cooked poached eggs. Coffee was very good too. Obviously a popular choice for those in the know, this cafe is ideally situated for a visit to Manukau.

We have eaten at UrbanSoul a number of times. To be honest it is really hard to fault this Cafe. Today we visited for a Sunday Breakfast - 6 adults / 1 infant. We booked ahead as we knew how popular the place was - the highchair was ready and waiting and we had heaps of room. The staff were... More
