There is a variety of soups, salads and wraps. The food has always been very fresh. I have used the Soup Man on at least 5 occasions for lunches and the attendees always find the wraps great. Soup is fresh made and in a variety Combos are a good value. Enjoy.

No question, some of the best soups you'll have, with usually 8 or more choices daily. The only thing I have a problem with, it isn't cheap. For that, I don't come here unless someone I'm with wishes to.

Just had an incredible lunch. Did the soup and sandwich and wow, both were awesome. I chose shrimp corn chowder and the ham and cheese. The sandwich was so full of meat I had to bring half of it home with me. I am up in the area on business and will certainly come back.

Original soup man yes the same one from "Seinfeld" I found it in Buffalo and I enjoyed the yummy variety of soups, if you want meaty or creamy or vegetable, chili, they have it all and you can taste too. The service was always excellent and I only wish I could take the Original Soup Man with me back to... More

My father loves soup, so we visited on a Tuesday around 11:30. My father had the clam chowder, which cost extra because there was fish in the soup. I often have difficulty with dairy and need to limit my intake, but the only other option was minestrone, which I didn't want. I decided to order off the sandwich menu and... More

It was a cold, rainy/snowy March 30 in Western New York. What better way to warm up than with a good bowl of soup? Having a coupon, we decided to try The Original Soupman (I guess the one in NYC was mentioned on "Seinfeld") No pretensions here - clean utilitarian decor, clean restrooms -nothing fancy. But yes, good soup and... More

The soup here are very hot and are delicous. You can get a combo with a sandwich, half sandwich or a salad. There is outdoor seating which makes for a pleasant change on a beautiful day.

Best lentil soup I have ever had however not for the price they charge. Also, soup is supposed to come with bread, fruit and chocolate. I got a nice piece of whole grain bread with butter, a tiny apple that looked like it came off of someone's tree in their backyard and no chocolate.

Orderered soup and sandwiches. While the soup was passable, the sandwiches were stale and tasteless. Would not recommend trying this place.

I love soup, but I have eaten there 3 times and although the food quality is good, the price leaves a bad taste in my mouth. The restaurant is mostly a store-front with formica tables crowded into a sparsely furnished room with the ordering area within feet of the tables. There are usually at least 10 choices from chile to... More
