When it comes to soul food, Camden knows exactly what it’s doing. You can’t go wrong with any of the restaurants listed here: they’re all so unbelievably good, you’ll want soul food for breakfast, lunch, and dinner.

Corrine's Place

Restaurant, American, Soul Food

Corrine’s is Camden’s go-to soul food joint. It’s no frills, straightforward, fantastic food. Everything on the menu is a winner, but you’re crazy if you don’t try the fried chicken. If you want something more traditional, go for cajun pig’s feet or beef oxtails. Corrine’s has been a Camden favorite since 1990, and after one visit it’ll be yours too.

Aunt Berta's Kitchen

Restaurant, American, Soul Food

Aunt Berta’s Kitchen has been serving up classic soul food just outside the Camden border since 1998. The menu is peppered with great options, including collards, cabbage, candied yams, baked mac & cheese, fried fish, roasted chicken, pig’s feet, ribs, potato salad, cornbread and, of course, sweet potato pie.

Ms. Nancy’s serves up authentic soul food with a healthy twist, in the heart of Merchantville. There are vegetarian options, lunch specials, family and party trays and corporate lunches. Even better, Ms. Nancy’s menu is available for take-out or delivery to surrounding towns. What could be better than chicken and waffles delivered to your door?

Freddy's Restaurant

Freddy’s is Camden’s go-to place for authentic Spanish soul food. Try the mofongo, either shrimp or pork, and savor the huge sides of rice and beans. With hints of Dominican and Puerto Rican flavors, dishes such as arroz con gandules y carne frita will satisfy every craving you didn’t even know you had.

It's the personal contact, the personal experiences. I love meeting people from all over the world... I really like getting to know everyone and feeling like I'm traveling with a group of friends.


I have so many places on my list, but I would really lobe to go to Africa. I consider myself an “adventure girl” and Africa feels like the ULTIMATE adventure!
