We had a great late lunch at Darn Good Soup. It was snowing,windy and cold. Soup was the perfect lunch. We enjoyed Sausage and Pepper soup along with White Bean and Ham. I recommend going there anytime.

This place is kind of cute and right on the Square in downtown Bloomington. I will venture a guess and estimate there are enough seats for 20 people total.

Title says it all. Fast service and low cost for average tasting food. Nothing special. Low cost nourishment that beats fast food chains.

In the summer there is nothing like their cold gazpacho soup! It tastes delicious, and really I could eat it year round.
