9 different soups "on tap". All seem artfully made. Tasted the sweet &sour pork, zucchini pesto, sweet potato coconut. Each was wonderful and sophisticated and very reasonably priced. Grab a cookie while you are at it.

They have a big variety, both vegan and non. Delicious! Small seating area however, you should be able to find a seat if not during lunch hour.

Every soup they make is delicious and I'll try soups that I wouldn't normally try elsewhere. Here are a few that I can't get enough of: chicken tortilla, carrot ginger, zucchini pesto, and butternut squash. I only wish they gave you a larger piece of bread with the soup to sop it all up.

Darn Good Soup is really... well, Darn Good. I haven't tried a soup there that I didn't like. Generous portions of soup come with a baguette slice. My favorite soup at the moment is chicken tortilla. The only drawback is in-house seating. There are few tables and it's always crowded at lunch, so it is possible you will have to... More

Picked this gem from other Trip Advisor recommendations. This place did not disappoint. Had the Lentil Spinach soup and my daughter had the Clam Chowder. Both were excellent. The owners are very nice and helpful at helping you pick one of their 6 soups. Keep up the good work guys.

If you are looking for a variety of soups, go to Darn Good Soup. There is always at least six different soups to choose from and they are delicious. No frills, good prices and quick service.
