Soul Food on Smith St is changing


The word on the street is that Soul Food on Smith St is to close and be replaced by a tapas place (and therefore possibly not vegetarian). The sign in their window gives little away and the website is equally obtuse.


  1. We asked on Facebook and somebody happened to be having brekkie that at the time. There’s not much more to report: they’re going to be non-veggie in their new incarnation and are going for a ‘more selective’ vibe – whatever that means.

  2. Today I was disappointed to find that Soul Food Cafe has changed owners, staff, decor, and menu. None of the changes are improvements. The cafe now serves bacon and other meats. The coffee was terrible. I ordered a vegan brekkie and asked the waitress to please tell the chef that I’m vegan. I’m sure what they then served me was tainted by animal fats, as though they cooked my scrambled tofu alongside some bacon. A terrible fall from grace for what was once an excellent veg*n cafe.
