Went here for lunch and had a delicious cheese sandwich that left me wanting more. Love the French owner whose personality matches the quality of his food.

Coffee was outstanding and service was also great. This place is conveniently located in downtown of Raleigh. I was under impression that there was a lot of repeat customers.

I've never been to Sosta, but now I want to go! Sosta recently catered a business lunch I was attending and I just had to find out who made the sandwich I had just eaten. I had the Guido; a port marinated roast beef, gorgonzola cheese, caramelized onions and arugula on ciabatta bread with a side of Israeli couscous and... More

I work downtown so I get Sosta once a week or every other week; ITS THAT GOOD! Also its comfortable to eat in the restaurant or call ahead and get take away. They have the best vegan BBQ I have ever tasted; I think someone sold their soul for that recipe. My co-worker who eats all kinds of food loves... More

Small but clean and friendly. Wonderful clean food. Sampler plate and coffee and homemade brownies were all a hit. Friendly owner- knew everyone who walked in.

Had lunch at Sosta. I loved the staff who spoke French and was very friendly. I was not expecting a lot from this little cafe but I was wrong. I Had the chicken Salad. The size of the salad and the taste are unequaled. I highly recommend this place .

This cafe is sooo neat in the middle of the city. We had coffee, fruit smoothies and desserts. Coffee smooth, smoothies refreshingly delicious and the desserts rich and delish. Atmosphere Is nice, bathrooms clean nicely decorated. The small staff is friendly. I fell in love with this cafe!!!!

Cannot comment on the food because we never were able to eat any. Stopped in and ordered lunch. When my wife asked why our order was taking longer than the orders of other diners, the waiter told my wife to not complain. Rather than saying what was going so long he gave us our money back and said something about... More

The double macchiato was the best I had in Durham and looking at some of the tables ordering food, this looks to be a hidden lunch option in the area. The menu boasts a wide range of healthy dishes (veggie and vegan) and despite being a small place, there's plenty of room to sit casually on the sofas with a... More

While walking around Raleigh, we stumbled upon this little cafe and were pleasantly surprised. The decor is welcoming, there is outside seating, a lounge area, and even stools at the counter. The coffee was excellent. We had iced mocha lattes while we waited for our sandwiches to-go. They were both delicious and were served with couscous and chickpeas which were... More
