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!

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
