The brunch isn't my favorite, but the regular menu is phenomenal. The mac and cheese and potato salad are soooo good!! Everything is delicious and the food is filling without being heavy. I can't wait to try the desserts!

I am not vegan but decided to stop I because it was on my way home and had great reviews. The food was great! I got the curry chickpeas with rice, cornbread, collards, and plantains. The curry has a great flavor and was nice and spicy, but I wished there was more of a sauce. It was a little dry. The collards were perfect! I got a nicely sized portion and the flavor was really nice. The plantains we're good, but I had just recently had the same kind from Alpaca and I liked those better. SVC's version were still good though! The cornbread was a little dry, but maybe that's an occupational hazard of vegan baked goods. I am not sure. I would recommend this place, even if you're not vegan. The flavors of everything were amazing, and the portion sizes were great. The price was what I would expect. My dish totaled to $12.90 after tax. There were sandwiches and salads for under $10 though. If there were one thing I could improve, it would be the dryness of some of the dishes.

The food was delicious! I just wish the portion size for the sides was a little larger. Will definitely go back.

My boyfriend and I drove all the way from Greensboro and it was worth every mile!! The food was great. The service was impeccable and the candied yams were to die for. We will definitely be back again next week.

I haven't gotten a chance to try everything on the menu. But I can already tell everything is good. I really loved the soulful burger and the buffalo chicken bites. This place is extraordinary!

One of the best vegan macaroni and cheese dishes we have ever had. A lot of the food is spicy--so be prepared--but it don't be fooled by its modest appearance from the outside (or inside) the Souly Vegan Cafe serves delicious vegan food and if I we lived in the area, we would be regulars!

So good! It's hard to find food when traveling with being vegan and having celiacs. Soul good vegan cafe is delicious and we will definitely stop back through on our next adventure.

Great food! We're not vegan but will be back for the food and lovely atmosphere. The chickpeas were full of flavor and cooked to just the right tenderness. The rice was cooked perfectly, not to dry and a nice mild flavor. The kale was spicy and a bit too salty but yummy. The cornbread was moist but not cake like, some of the best cornbread I've ever had. The plaintains we're also really delicious and not overly sweet or greasy. The jackfruit had a good barbecue sauce on it and tasted a lot like be barbecue to me. There was an African theme decor. You can eat outside too. They have some interesting sodas and vegan cupcakes and cookies and pie.

Absolutely amazing place! The staff is so welcoming and make you feel good. And the FOOD the FOOD is so delicious you will be addicted at your first bite. Since I went vegan I didn’t think I would be able to have good soul food again but I was wrong. Tastes amazing, definitely made with love.

This place is absolutely fantastic! Vegan soul food done just like I remember. The greens and cornbread alone would've made a great meal for me and were seasoned perfectly. Quaint little space that feels like home. Great family run business that I'm proud to support. Not just good food, but food that's good for the body and soul which is something our community needs desperately. Thank you so much for a great dining experience, I am looking forward to dining with you again.

Typically the two words soul and vegan don't go well in the same sentence... But ironically at this restaurant vegan soul food is actually very delicious. I was a bit skeptical to try this new concoction but it works! The food is great and taste like authentic soul food your grandmother used to make. The staff was extremely friendly; Dion went above and beyond to perform her duties as a waitress / hostess. This place is definitely worth a try

Fantastic food and great service. Had the Sunday brunch and it was perfectly filling but light and everything was seasoned great. The pancakes were fantastic. Will most certainly be back very soon!!! Just found me a new spot!

Had the most delicious vegan meal ever. The Sunday brunch would be a must every week if I lived in the area. Beautifully decorated area, comfortable atmosphere. We were a large group so it was unfortunate our food came out in shifts. However it was worth the wait. Highly recommend. In fact please go, it's the quality of restaurant you'd like to see around for a long time.

I ate here some months ago & I haven't been back since but I was very pleased. The food was good & the prices were decent. It was my first time & it won't be my last. Not a vegan so I was pleasantly surprised.

Crazy good! And I'm not even a vegan (or even a vegetarian!). The Mac and cheese is surprisingly delicious and the Poppin BBQ is extremely tastey.

I am a non-vegan and I guarantee to any and all non-vegans/vegetarians that you will be astonished at the taste and quality of this food. Get a wild hair and give it a try. This place is authentic.

This is such a wonderful restaurant! Everything about it’s terrific- The flavors, different menu options, the atmosphere...but the best thing about it are the people that run it. They really deserve all the success and praise this place receives. Their Sunday brunch is my favorite. They also sell the best cupcakes I’ve ever had. And they get their produce from a local farmer. Support them :)

I love this place so much. I can’t say enough good things about it. The vibe is amazing, it feels like home. The food is spectacular. They knock plant based soul food out of the park. Mac and cheese, the best. BBQ, the best. Plantains, the best. It’s all the best. ❤️ I’m so happy this place exists and I hope it stays here forever.

I’m the only vegan in my family but my whole family loves this place. If you want soul food cooking that taste like it’s straight out of grandma’s kitchen this place is for you! I always order seconds.

Great vegan food. They didn't have the jackfruit ready so if that's your focus is call ahead to make sure it's prepare. Most if the menu is soy based btw. The greens were dynamic and so was the mac and cheese. You'll love it trust me.

Random find on our way into Raleigh. Concur isn't from I-40. Relaxed atmosphere. Great food! We loved everything we tried. Best house salad I've had in a bit, tasty mock jerk chicken -& the heavenly plantains! So good I had to get some to go.
