Great food and atmosphere! If you’re looking for a chill spot to try out some Spanish food definitely stop by! Tried the cachapas with loads of toppings and they were deliciously sweet and salty. The tequeños were also very delicious dipped in their pink sauce.

Somos is one of my favorite spots in New Haven! The food is always delicious and the staff is extremely welcoming, kind and passionate about what they do. Andres and Alejo have done an outstanding job making this a staple for the New Haven Ninth Square Community! I am also celiac and almost all of there food accommodates my dietary restrictions!

Go grab a Bowl, Cachapa or Arepa, you won’t regret it!


Amazing Arepas. Fresh ingredients and served to order. Good size for quality and pricing. You can mix and match addings and toppings to create your own unique blend. Friendly staff, Indoor and outdoor seating. Good atmosphere for the size of the building.
