Came here for lunch with a group of colleagues and was pleasantly surprised at the place. Would return for sure.

Service - Friendly service and very efficient.

Food - The corn fritters, steak sandwich and chicken & Brie fougasse were nicely done. The chips was crunchy and tasty. Steak was nicely cooked and the breads were fresh. It was a pleasant surprise.

Value - Average price but big portions so good value here.

Atmosphere - The decor and whole atmosphere is very warm plus very suitable for a cafe. One of the nicer decorated cafes around.

Overall - A great place for lunch and it was packed on a Thursday afternoon. Lucky we got a table for 6 of us.

Went in at midday Thursday for lunch. It was very busy and a table was hard to find. The cabinet food was easy to see. Apparently, there is a limited menu but not clear where they hide them.

You find your own table and queue at the counter to select and pay.

Excellent service, food and coffee good and reasonably priced.

A very pleasant place for lunch.

All our friends like this place. A very nice cafe, with very good coffee and a nice selection of foods. Really cool art deco design layout, trendy, and friendly too. A really nice place to go with friends to chill out and relax

I had an early morning meeting in Manukau and not knowing the area well, used trip advisor to search for somewhere to stop for breakfast. Found Urban Soul and thinking I was early as café was not due to open for another 15 mins found a park and waited for it to open. Quickly realised that the place opens earlier for the coffee trade and that by 10 mins after official opening time the place was filling up with locals and others having breakfast meetings.

Coffee was excellent with friendly and quick service. Had the eggs benedict which had nice runny eggs and good bacon. Obviously they have a big local clientele as the place was buzzing. Also had an area for kids to play. Prices reasonable. Will be back next time I find myself in Manukau at 7am.
