Terrific soups and great location for a quick bite on one of those clammy, colder days you might find in June in Door County. The guy knows his stuff about prepping and making soups that are flavorful and interesting. Highly recommended as a go-to place...More

Stumbled upon this place on accident and glad we did. The soup was very fresh and delicious. The sandwiches were pre-made but still very tasty. The two of us both ate for 12 dollars. Stop in and check it out if you have time!

For the past decade the Door peninsula has emerged as a still somewhat hidden foodie haven. From longstanding whitefish fish boils to numerous great perch fish frys, the traditional bounty is overwhelming. That noted, the County has more recently attracted a whole new ensemble of...More

The wife and I stopped for lunch during our weekend away. A co-worker recommended the place. I ordered chili but after the owner said it was quite spicy I changed to the Sage Chicken. The wife got Potato. I appreciated the warning about the chili...More

Soups change daily. Call Paul and ask him. If you have a favorite you can make a request several days ahead of time.
