We can’t decide what we love most at Jack’s Wife Freda – the food, the scene or the prices. Drawing in an awesome young crowd, this café is a great late-night spot for great down home food with an urban twist.

Menu recommendations from Roopal Patel (Founder/Owner, Roopal Patel Consulting): the grilled halloumi, and the Greek salad with grilled chicken.

Matt Levine, owner of Chalk Point Kitchen, considers this the best breakfast spot in Soho.
