From Nutie and Bourke Street Bakery to Paramount Coffee Project, Surry Hills is home to an overwhelming number of cafes. Running a cafe in Surry Hills would be a daunting task, but one of the area's hottest spots, SOUL Deli, is offering something different. It's a Korean cafe and deli, slinging fresh and packaged deli goods, cafe food to have-in and takeaway, and a range of products made by local Korean community members.

From the deli, you can purchase a wide variety of kimchi, pickles, sauces and snacks. For those who want to dine in or pick up a morning meal, the menu stretches from cafe classics like the bacon and egg or Korean fried chicken rolls to exciting creations such as kimchi cheese pulled pork sandwiches, a Korean chicken porridge and buttermilk hot cakes with maple syrup and cultured butter.

It also makes a great coffee for those looking for their caffeine fix, as well as bellflower and ginger tea, juices and Korean soft drinks.

While you're picking up your locally sourced coffee or pulled pork sandwich, you can also shop the range of products that line the walls at SOUL Deli. Browse ceramics, pottery and clothing all from local small businesses and artists.
