Great place for a nice Sunday brunch, with very affordable menu options and quality food, that was accompanied by great service from the staff.

I live down the street from SoBo Cafe and have dined here fairly frequently over the last two years. I like the creative menu here - there are seasonal dishes along with staples that never change. The house salad, spinach pie, french onion soup and flatbreads are some of my favorites. Good variety of wine to choose from. Service is warm and friendly. Atmosphere is cozy. Such a nice change from the frat house bars in Fed Hill. It's one of the best restaurants i the neighborhood. Only thing to note is that SoBo does not have a full liquor license (i.e. no martinis or other cocktails).

The food was absolutely amazing and the restaurant was extremely quaint. The service was not the best. We went on Valentine's Day so our server was clearly busy with many tables, but she did a great job with our orders. Definitely going back.

We enjoyed the wide variety of small plate options and the delicious array of vegetarian choices. Cooking was tasty and ingredients were very fresh.

We went here for Sunday brunch and had a great time. We got a homemade cinnamon roll to share between two people and I would seriously it to anyone visiting! It was amazing, as was the coffee and the rest of our food. They brought out homemade blueberry pound cake to start the meal too - everything was fantastic. The portions were so large that we will get at least one more meal out of it, so the price we paid for the quantity/quality of the food would be hard to beat!

This was our second time at SoBo Cafe. Food was excellent as before. I ordered the Chicken Pot Pie. Again. Out of this world. Intimate ambiance. Staff is warm, friendly, knowledgeable. Love this place. It's the kind of place where the owner comes to your table and asks if everything is to your liking. Not too pricey. Not stuffy. You should try this restaurant. Both times my wife and I were impressed with everything.

One of my favorite restaurants in the neighborhood - live in walking distance. Good vibe, good food, reasonable prices. Wish there were more vegetarian options. Love that the restaurant displays art for local artists and occasionally has music.

Really good food but service was terrible. Not surprising since there was one waitress to accommodate the entire restaurant. It took her almost 45 minutes to take our order for our main entree after we had finished our salads and another hour to give us our Check. I probably will go back but if the service is that bad again I wouldn’t return because I simply can’t wait two hours to get dinner.
