On an unassuming street in Marylebone, this attractively designed café makes a pleasant spot for a cup of coffee and a sandwich. Decked out in green Farrow & Ball-esque hues with attractive loaves on display behind the marble-topped counter, plenty of thought has gone in to the look here. The food is also well-considered. The sourdough bread in a beef, watercress and horseradish sandwich was soft and moreish with a chewy crust, while the filling packed just the right amount of punch. Dried fig, green bean and goat’s cheese salad was also sound, though eating out of plastic containers if you’re not on the go isn’t the nicest experience. Sweet toothed gluten-avoiders were also served well on our visit with three wheat-free cakes on offer.
The café serves fine quality, gourmet, Mediterranean-inspired dishes, prepared on site for take away breakfasts and lunches. The meat is local, the produce is thoughtfully sourced, and the bread is from a local artisan baker.
Souli has a wide range of fresh juices, crafted sandwiches, appetising salads, delicious soups and heart-warming daily hot pots with vegan options always available. Highlights on the menu will vary depending on the season.
The layout is ideally suited for take away breakfast and lunches with some tables for those who wish to dine in. The design is rustic chic.
Souli is the only place in London serving the Legendary Sant'Eustachio (est. 1938) Italian coffee; a blend of 100% arabica beans free from chemical treatments (all the beans are wood-roasted and the decaf beans have been Swiss-water treated), ensuring this high-quality coffee is extremely smooth and velvety without bitterness.
Souli has a unique breakfast offer. It is is very popular for its breakfast sandwiches, its porridge and its 100% spelt French pastries. Souli serves the well-established Parisian tea brand Mariage Frères which can be accompanied by one of the various treats (including gluten-free cakes), available for those afternoon cravings.
On Saturdays, Souli offers omelettes, sweet crêpes, gluten-free savoury crêpes and sandwiches (including breakfast sandwiches) all-day long.
