I liked SLC, but the new management sucks! It was once hip and cool, but now the lattes, atmosphere and food are severely suffering.

It was never a great place, but it was a low rent cafe and that was OK. But, now it is insufferable.

It could be the cold weather, so I will give it a try in the Spring. Plus it is no longer SLC, but Soy...when did the new management happen?

Pros: Crepes are OK

Cons: Service, it needs to be cleaner and the lattes taste foul

Before eating at Soy Luck Club, you should check out their Restaurant Inspection Information from their last inspection. I did after I got very sick eating at Soy Luck Club, and am DISGUSTED. Here is the link 167.153.150.32/RI/web/detail.do?method=history&restaurantId=41406332

They Scored a 44 (a zero is a perfect score, so a 44 is like a 56% = MAJOR FAILURE).

I have been to Soy Luck Club twice now and have to say the place is average at best. Both times I was there I a soy matte-latte with honey ginger and a #1 pressed bagel with salmon and soy cream cheese. I have to admit that it was yummy both times. However, both times I came home and was VERY sick. I figured that I might have developed a sensitivity to soy milk, which I have read happens to people from time to time. But, after talking to a neighbor who also had a similar experience after eating at Soy, I am convenced that it is not a sensitivity. Because I NEVER get sick drinking a soy latte anywhere else.
My neighbor pointed me to the NYC Dept. of Health and Mental Hygiene (listed above). It took a little bit to find them, because there has a been an address change from what is posted on the Soy Luck Club website (it is no longer 115 Greenwich, it is now 1 Jane Street) and the company is listed as the Yos Corp (Yos= Soy spelled backwards). It made my skin crawl. It is no wonder I got sick after reading violations 4/5/6 and 8. EKK!

Pros: I liked the staff.

Cons: Diaheria, Vomitting and Stomach Cramps. (just to name a few)

If I could give this place 10 stars, I would! The food's awesome, the look is hip and happening and the service is consistently wonderful and smiley! I don't know what "wvWriter"'s problem is, but Soy's staff is always lovely and kind; I've never met a more friendly, knowledgeable collage of characters in my life!

I have special, semi-demanding dietary needs, and Kristian has always been there to help me. Garrett, who's adorable, went as far to suggest my new favorite drink--the mate latte!! I take care of 2 young children who can be a handful, and Howard has always been incredibly kind to them--He's a dear!

It baffles me that wvWriter has issues with the staff's "hygiene"--these men are some of the cleaniest men I've seen (trust me, ladies!). If the bitter wvWriter has such personal and mean complaints about the staff of soy--maybe the store is better off without him (quite frankly, he/she is probably a pain in the butt to serve...)

I LOVE THIS PLACE! Everyone go there and get a soyafrost--props to the owner and all who make the experience delicious!

Pros: Healthy food, AWESOME SERVICE, tasty soyo chicken

Cons: Cons? The only con is that this place is CONsistantly good!

I am an author who used to frequent this cafe. During its heyday, it was a chic alternative to Starbucks. Unfortunately, the new management is making this place an abject catastrophe. And judging from the old picture here, this profile is seriously outdated. Let me explain how horrible it was just to have lunch there this week.

I heard cacophonous metal music spilling from the entry (they used to play lounge music). I simply picked the tofu salad sandwich with no special requests. A barista with dirty hair and hands, wreaking of an illegal substance and alcohol, stammered through my very basic order. Upon delivery, the low-quality tofu had a refrigerator after-taste, a foul smell and the bread was stale (hardly holistic or good for you, in my opinion).

I asked to speak to the manager and a sweaty, older man named Howard reluctantly ceased his lowly flirtation with a college-aged boy. To make matters worse, this "manager" had poor hygiene, smoker's breath and an equally malodorous personality. He refused to process a refund ?? even though I witnessed him give freebies to his own friends the whole time.

If you want healthy and flavorful food, just check out menus in the West Village and nearby Chelsea neighborhoods. There are an array of exemplary cafes with better service, prices and REAL ambiance.

would like to take a moment to tip my hat to a delicious restaurant in NYC: the Soy Luck Club.

I just had a wonderful tofu salad salad complete with avocado and soy yogurt dill dressing. I also had the most amazing vegan brownie in the world, possibly the universe. They don't even pay me to say that. It's just a fact. I found the regular coffee to be quite yummy. I'm VERY picky about coffee. Nothing in NY is ever good enough. A regular tells me that the coffee is not always so good, but that today's brew deserves a thumbs up.

Pros: tastes great with an array of choices

Cons: too small

Worst food in the Village. I looked at their health violations and after much pain I learned my lesson to NEVER Eat there again. If you want Legionnaires disease, then this is the right place for you

Pros: There aren't any

Cons: Too many to state, but suffices to say cleanliness is questionable.

With comfortable seating, free wi-fi and arguably the best Green Tea Matcha blend in the city, its no wonder I've gotten so much writing done at this postmodern cafe wonderland.

I have been a member for years and it's great!!! I think they have over 200 members.. That was one unfortunate incident to the below review. They would never intentionally rip anyone off. The membership is great I get 20% off. with $90 dollars I get $110 "soy dollars", one week pass to equinox, 1 hour personal training, 1 free yoga session and discount on Zip Car registration!!.. LOVE IT. I don't have to bring my wallet and many times they let me charge more than i have in my account based on just me being a neighbor.
That is very unfortunate. Talk to them they will def give you back the money. It might be just a transition of staff.

Do not purchase their membership deal. It supposedly gives you $110 of food for $89.90 paid in advance. But here's the catch--- they keep the records and give you no receipt of your balance. Also, there is no debit card so you are at the mercy of their recording keeping. This is the second time now that they show no record of me. It took forever to get it straightened out the first time. No they deny my membership once again So if I don't fight for this basically I have paid $90.00 for the three sandwiches which I was able to debit on my first visit.

Who cares about the food or environment when your wallet is being lifted!

I stumbled on Soy completely by accident and it must be said that it's one of my favorite places in the Village. The flaxseed wraps (especially the avocado, cucumber, cream cheese one. Trust me, it's divine!) are amazing and the soups are delicious. Omelettes are done very well and the one with salmon is my personal favorite.

I managed to get all of my friends addicted to their drinks and there's nothing better than their Winter Warmth when it's freezing.

The service is very friendly though at times they can be a bit...spacey. Still, where the food is concerned, I can't get enough!!

I don't know about the rest of the menu, but don't get the salad. Considering the salad was the most expensive item on the menu, I really expected much better. It tasted average, NOTHING SPECIAL, and the portion was small. For $10, I was extremely disappointed. I never leave reviews but I was so disappointed I made an exception for Soy Luck to warn my fellow New Yorkers. This place is lame.

Everything I've had at Soy Luck Club is great (and I spent quite a few hours there on my laptop while working on a writing project). The very BEST thing they make, the food that even non-vegetarians savor and devour, is the TOFU SALAD SANDWICH. I've never liked egg salad, but I'm a vegan now and thought I'd give this sandwich a try. Bits of celery add crunch to the soft tofu mixture, and the fatty blandness of the avocado is set off perfectly by crusty bread with sweet bursts of raisin. It is truly an unbeatable sandwich! Service is friendly, and you can feel comfortable spending five hours there with your computer.

Original decor mixed with a refreshing selection on the menu, ranging from the best Soyafrost in town to the mouth watering paninis. I have tried most of the items on the menu I have to say that everything I have tried from the bar or from the kitchen is fabulous. My favorite it the green tea & honey soyafrost and the tuna panini but if you can't make up your mind, the friendly and helpful staff would never fall short of a good recommendation. Even though I am not a computer guy, the free DSL access must be heaven to the casual internet surfer! Overall, the healthy and taasty selection offered by Soy Luck Club is definitely above and beyond your corner cafe and more 'buck worthy' than Starbuck's.

It's the best kept secret in new york. I had the best experience. Their drinks are amazing. Their Honey Ginger Soy Steamer is addictive!! Great selections of dairy free desserts. Salads are fresh. Organic sandwiches and panini's not only catered to vegetarians. Staff is friendly. Best of all...they have COMPLIMENTARY DSL access but you got to bring your own laptop. Posh decor with comfy Eames chairs and Saranin tables. Great people watching place, I saw celeb's like Helen Hunt, Claire Danes, Sandra Burnhart there. There should be more of these in the city. A true Starbucks alternative.
