Sodi Cafe

award winning licensed cafe in Pakington Street

what the judges said in 2019

Immediately on arrival you can tell Sodi Cafe in popular Pakington Street  is very well run. A warm welcome, water and menus presented quickly, and the hum of contented customers.  It’s smartly fitted out and plays good background music with the hustle and bustle from the kitchen and coffee machine adding to the atmosphere. Food quality at Sodi was good and the Coffee was great, with “Ocean Grind Coffee” perfectly made. My Late was exceptional. The Espresso was full bodied, strong and had a perfect crema. The sparkling water palette-cleanser was a nice touch. The “Stick” Pork Belly was nicely presented with crisp crackling on the outside and the meat moist and flavoursome inside. The Southern Fried Chicken Burger was perfectly made and the brioche roll fresh and soft. The Oat cake I chose for dessert was good. The alcoholic drinks menu was good for a small café and included quality local products.  Dairy, Gluten Free and Vegan Options available. Sodi Cafe is European style dog-friendly and a great find. It offers good eats and service and, and for my money the best coffee in town.
