We had not been to Soul Brew, St. James, since just  before Covid.  It is just as delightful as I had remembered it. A “…quaint coffeehouse with hip atmosphere… offering a cozy, warm, friendly experience.” (website), describes it almost perfectly! The only thing I would add is that the food is delicious! 

Located towards the left end of a strip-mall, I expected to fine accessible parking spaces near the entrance. Instead, the four accessible spaces are located towards the center of the lot, where there is a curb-cut to the sidewalk. There is also a curb-cut to the left of the restaurant’s entrance at the end of the sidewalk. 

A canvas/plastic entryway has a single door, leading to another single door.  Once inside, one can’t help but immediately notice the look and decor. The website says it is a “…quaint coffeehouse with hip atmosphere…offering a cozy warm, friendly experience.”  So true! The walls are covered with many interesting works that inspire conversation.

There is a variety of seating from tables and banquettes. to a beautiful, full-height counter. There is a large area, in front of the window, with sofas and a large table. The only downside to this spot is the step up to get to it.  Although this venue is not spacious, there is adequate room to navigate.

The menu is intriguing, with a variety of interesting drinks, especially their “gourmet drinks.”  Our cappuccino and caffe latte were wonderful. Soul Brew serves 100% Organic, Fair Trade Coffees and Teas from surrounding areas.  We would be remiss if we didn’t tell you about our orders; Kristen’s Scramble and a Healthy Panini were both delicious! Plus, our server was delightful, as well as efficient!

A large, accessible, single-occupancy, restroom, with baby-changing station,  is located in the rear. The artwork on the walls in here is enough to make you stay longer than necessary!

As always, we at Destination Accessible, advise you to visit a venue’s website,, when planning a visit, to “know before you go.
