Review of Cafe Sobar

Cafe Sobar
Ranked #38 of 1,376 Restaurants in Nottingham
Certificate of Excellence
Price range: US$4 - US$9
Description: Sobar is the alcohol-free alternative cafe-bar venue for everyone; offering superb food, drink and original entertainment in a vibrant and welcoming environment. Sobar has been developed by Double Impact, the Nottingham-based drug and alcohol recovery charity with the support of a grant from the Big Lottery Fund.The initial concept for Sobar came from the users of Double Impact services who found that one of the main barriers to their recovery was social isolation and the lack of places to go that are alcohol free, particularly in the evenings and weekends. Our vision is to provide Nottingham with an alternative to the mainstream restaurants and bars and create a really convivial and creative space open to everyone who wants the choice to socialise without a focus on alcohol.

First time visit to the cafe sobar and will definitely be revisiting. Very clean, the staff were polite and attentive, especially the manager who is clearly passionate about this non profit making business.
Excellent choice of food, especially the "free from" range, competitively priced and good sized portions.
The food was delivered quickly, hot and very tasty. Super value for money.
Also love the fact there is a free water dispenser on the counter instead of being overcharged for still bottle water.

Just been to the cafe today for a hearty breakfast. Well its on the main road and big enough that you just can't miss. The inside is spacious and bright. The wonderful ladies at the counter with lovely smile to take your order. I felt it was a bit overly priced, I had ordered a English breakfast and a Cafe Latte. The food was good and well presented. The Latte was refreshing. You have free WiFi and enjoy a delicious meal. Didn't see any customers cribbing over anything... Well good service and warm feeling.
