Welcome to Soif

Come Eat & Drink with us


Great Food & Wine in Downtown Santa Cruz

Since opening, our goal at Soif Wine Bar & Merchants® has been to provide a comfortable place to drink great wine and eat food that is as good as the wine, and then, if the wine is to your liking, to be able to buy some and take it home. We want wines that are usually a challenge to find: reflective of their origin, expressive of the vineyard and the vintage and the traditions of their region, wines that are not a commodity, but limited and handmade, wines of great provenance and flavor.

For us, the fun is in finding the wines, sourcing and making the delicious, wholesome food, and then putting it all together so when our guests walk through the door, night after day, there is something here for them that is real, that satisfies their thirst for the soulful, the delicious, and the well made.
