I had heard of Urban Soul so tried it this week for a late lunch when I was in the area. The first thing to strike me was the classy fitout - really lovely. I chose a beef quesadilla from the cabinet. I expected this to come with a small salad on the side as $9.50 for just a slice... More

Came here with my wife and father, love coming here for brekky. Totally get the city slicker breakfast it's amazing! Not cheap but the food is awesome quality, staff are helpful and meals don't take long to come out. Also have a deli cabinet selection if you're wanting a snack more than a meal

A great modern decor, bright with cruisy music. The coffee was delicious. The breakfasts looked great - see photos - and tasted fantastic. Quite generous servings. The Hous Breakfast was particularly filling. I had the rosti with salmon and hollandaise - yum! We also bought some slices to takeaway because everything in the glass cabinet looked so inviting. The Feijoa... More

We booked in today for a work brunch and what a surprise it was ... a good one. Food was great and the selection was amazing! I couldn't resist all the cakes so had to buy some to take away for the team left at the office (including gluten free) They all loved them. The team were friendly and on... More

We travelled down from the airport and needed a coffee / brunch stop. Tagged onto the Westpack building on the ground floor corner is this cafe. Heaps of 'suits', locals and passers by come here. Food and coffee are both really good! We came here twice!

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
