Located in Federal Hill, this nicely decorated restaurant serves excellent food. We were a group of 7 diners, and everyone enjoyed his/her meal. There was a large selection of appetizers (I recommend the spinach pie, one of the best I ever had). The pasta is...More

Tried this cafe for a solo lunch based on reviews and wasn't disappointed. Had the veggie sandwich on some delicious homemade bread. Also enjoyed the well-priced (and well-poured!) wine flight.

I have been going to SOBO Cafe for years. They have a seasonal menu that changes periodically with some tried and true stand-bys that remain a fixture. Their soups are all made from scratch and taste like they were made in heaven. Even simple ones...More

Description
We pride ourselves on preparing our from-scratch menu with fresh seasonal ingredients and a whole lot of flavor. Our cozy, intimate dining room is the perfect setting to enjoy a seasonal dish and a glass of carefully chosen wine or beer. A favorite among neighbors and visitors, we go out of our way to make everyone feel at home. Weather permitting; delight in dining al fresco at one of our outdoor tables. We serve lunch daily, brunch on Saturdays and Sundays, dinner seven days and “SoBo Hour” at the bar and outdoor tables Monday through Friday, 5 pm to 7 pm. We’re a short walk from the stadiums and the inner harbor. SoBo Cafe follows sustainable practices by composting food waste and by recycling glass, metal, plastic & paper products. We look forward to your next visit.
