I never ever get the soup. I come here to either grab a premade salad or get one I can make of my own. The price is comparable to other salad places. It is good to stop and grab when in a rush.

Centrally located in Midtown and with an eclectic choice of soups, Hale and Hearty is a solid choice for grabbing a quick meal during the winter and colder months. The prices are reasonable and the quality is good. Just be sure to note that peak times are between 12-1:30 but the line sometimes takes some time to clear.

I happened upon this spot while traveling for business. I had one of the meals I think they call it a pot meal it was Thai chicken. It was very tasty, good flavors, good portion. My only complaint is that the way they packaged it and put it in the bag it leaked and I had a quite a bit... More

Did not try the soups, which they are famous for, but went with a design your own salad. Fresh ingredients and many options. I like the way the automatically include some of the basics like carrots and cucumbers in the standard price and then pick 5 on top of that. It is a small place so it gets busy during... More

We had the best American salad and soup from this shop. Everything was eaten (or Drunk) service was quick, helpful and friendly. It is just a shame there is no branch in Belfast

I had intended on eating across the street at The Soupman but their choice was limited to five soups. So, I decided to give Hale and Hearty a try. I'm glad I did! The man working behind the lunch bar was very friendly and helpful. He offered samples of a couple soups. I decided on the Chicken Curry soup. Hot... More

Lots of choices and there is much more than soup available. Sandwiches and desserts are ready and waiting for you. The best part; Free water. The plastic cups are right at the water station and your choice of lemon or no lemon water. A really nice touch in a city that delights in charging your for water in so many... More

You pick your greens, then your extras (peppers, olives, etc) a protein and your dressing. The Salad Guy puts it all into a bowl and chops it all together with a ulu knife, and then you ENJOY this heavenly concoction!

Sometimes, soup is just the right thing to eat when the weather is just too cold to bear. This was my first time at Hale & Hearty although they are apparently all over. Talk about healthy options for fast food. This place even caters to veggans. The menu has just about everything and offers several different soup specials, salad galore,... More

Staying in Midtown

Neighbourhood Profile
This is the iconic New York that so many visitors imagine before they visit—spectacular skyscrapers like the Chrysler Building and Empire State Building, iconic public buildings like Grand Central Terminal and the New York Public Library, and the non-stop hustle and bustle of the city streets. Fifth Avenue is a shopper's heaven where you can find every kind of store imaginable, with fashion brands ranging from the affordable to the ultra-fancy. Visit the Rockefeller Center to experience towering Art Deco grandeur, and foodies will love the busy restaurants that stay open late in Koreatown. After dark, Midtown calms down a bit, but at any time of day or night it still feels 100% New York.
