Loved this place. Wonderful choice of soups and sizes, with a few salads etc too. Perfect at the end of a long day sightseeing. The soups varied every day, and there was always plenty of choice for my vegetarian sister. I particularly loved the crab...More

Hale and Hearty is a good choice for a quick, not fancy lunch. Decent soups, good sandwiches and some salads. Order at the counter and find a seat.

Good option in NY if you want to eat something healthy and quickly. They sell soups, salads and sandwiches, that I've found tasty (vegeterian and vegan too). Normal prices, small place and no restroom.
