I visit Urban Soul once and a while and when I do I always receive great service from the friendly staff. I like the décor and nice atmosphere despite its location in commercial Manukau. Food selection is very good and plenty for vegetarians. Prices are good and very reasonable and the coffee aint bad either! Look forward to my next... More

Had a business meeting there so had a few coffees and ended up having lunch. The selection of cabinet foods was good and could easily have ordered 4 or 5 different selections and been happy. I had a large sausage roll when I arrived with a coffee and In the end I went for the Mexican Bowl (I think that... More

I like my coffee strong and Urban Soul certainly delivers with a double shot as standard and excellent flavour. Definitely the best cappuccino I've had in Auckland to date. Service was friendly and efficient and my poached eggs with eggplant and field mushrooms was faultless and beautifully presented. Highly recommended.

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
