SOMA Coffee House & Juice Bar - inside view by Kagan Tuncay

Soma Coffee House is a coffee and juice bar located in the Kirkwood Manor building at 322 E. Kirkwood Avenue in Bloomington, which was designed by leading local architect John L. Nichols. It is located in the basement below the Laughing Planet. It also has a backdoor entrance from TD's CDs & LPs as well as a stairwell entrance from the Laughing Planet upstairs.

Soma makes all of their juice when it is ordered by customers. They provide vegan baked goods and have onsite free wireless internet access. There are two major sitting rooms and an outdoor patio area.

In April 2007, Bob Costello, owner of the Village Deli, bought both Soma and the Laughing Planet.
