I moved away 15 years ago and love to go to the Soup Kitchen when I'm back in town. The soups are always very interesting and fresh.

Great place to get a quick lunch - a generous serving of tasty soup, so many to choose from, and an interesting variety of breads. Convenient and close parking. Inexpensive and a great place to grab a nutritious lunch!

A great variety of soups, one just as good as the other, paired with one of their delicious homemade.rolls and you have the perfect meal. Their desserts are equally as good and can either be eaten there or easily taken home to enjoy Later...you will not be disappointed.

I have eaten here many times over the past 11 years. Always good soup- all the time. This is a good hole-in-the-wall place to eat. Hearty soups.

This place has reliably great soups, breads and sandwiches. Always a favorite of mine for a nice lunch or dinner. The restaurant has very nice ambiance but the takeout is convenient as well. You can park up close and get an order from their window or inside.

Always have a great meal here. There is a large selection of soups and if you are not in the mood for soup try a sandwich or even a salad

The service here was excellent. The soup not so much. I tried the chicken noodle and vegetable soups. I am unsure if it was made from scratch. It wasn't very flavorful. I was disappointed. Won't be going back.

The people at this location are SO nice. They even let me taste the snow crab soup today, as I could not make up my mind. YUM! Highly recommended. I almost could not eat the entire bowl. They have good salads and their bread is quite delicious as well. I would give five stars if they cooked with salt, a... More
