Went with my wife and son on a Friday night and had two courses with a large glass of wine for £11.95. This isn't fine cuisine but is good for a quick stop for a filling meal. I had a chicken skewer and spicy stew which was nice but contained too much parsnip for my taste. My wife had garlic... More

Staying in Liverpool for 2 nights, I had a very nice breakfast in Soul on the first morning. Well cooked, quality ingredients - sausage and bacon were excellent. The second day I returned. Was left waiting while the (different) woman serving sorted out a delivery/collection, counting out money, etc. I'd have thought customers might have been more important? There was... More

Ugh DO NOT GO HERE. Everything about this place was frustrating. It looks super cute from the outside and my friends and I were super excited about trying it out, but the experience was terrible. First, the service is meh. Our server was kind of moody and did not engage with us in conversation... I get that people have bad... More

The café itself was nice but I waited 20 minutes for a bowl of soup. The place was half empty and the soup was average so I don't understand why. Having to get back to work, I had to eat the soup quickly (not enjoyable!) and then run out of the door back to the office. Not recommended if you... More

Pretty terrible got to admit, came in for some lunch and it took more than an hour because they were prioritising deliveries over in house customers, they gave us free drinks but no one else in the cafe had food either just disappointing Won't be returning

Situated in Liverpool's 'Northern Quarter', full of independant shops, new to you stores, record shops, vintage outlets etc, plus lots of eateries which are all indepedant, Soul worked for us being, an indie, clean, with friendly staff and good food.

Great little cafe at the top end of Bold Street. Great menu, great coffee, great music. Bold Street is a really great part of this city, full of vintage clothes shops where you can pick up some real bargains. We visited as part of a 2 night stay in the city. Really enjoyed...
