I had the Squash soup and a sandwich which were both totally awesome and just the right amount for lunch. Great place to make you feel like youre sitting in moms kitchen.

Lets start with the good, my husband had the turkey sandwich and spinach and chicken soup, he said that it was very good! The turkey was not lunch meat but a nice slice of turkey breast...yum! I had the southwestern chicken salad, also pretty tasty and the chicken was excellent! The macaroni and cheese was ok, it lacked flavor and neither of our kids would finish it. I think to offer an option without bacon would be nice. The clam chowder was thin and had an overwhelming taste of something not sure what in it, our daughter only ate half, she normally loves chowder and orders it whenever she can if its on a menu. The potato and cheese soup had great texture but lacked flavor. you get half a piece of bread with an 8oz cup of soup and a whole piece with a 16oz size, we needed more bread or crackers as it was significantly not enough for the bowl, especially when thats all you ordered was soup. Maybe offer fresh baked bread bowls? The desserts were way overpriced, 3 small cupcakes and a lemon bar for almost $9. We threw away the lemon bar because it had a bad after taste. We like that there is a drive thru for those nights we are in need of a quick meal, but the overall food wasn't great. If we return it will not be with the kids. It was self serve on water and you get your own silverware and napkins, also salt and pepper. You also bus your own area.

We were very excited to see a soup place come to town. However, once we visited here, we were sorely disappointed. My hubby tried (after much confusion on the board you order from) the half sandwich and soup. Well, being a soup place we thought there would be a good selection of home-made soups...Just two choices, one too exotic for him and a very bland vegie soup. He tried the vegetable soup and it was void of any flavor and only filled the paper cup 1/2 way. Not to mention the sandwich was teeny and cost $8. I ordered a "hand pie". This is supposed to be a healthy alternative to "regular" fast food. Imagine...lamb, feta cheese and spinach wrapped in dough. Sounds heavenly right? But instead you get a ridiculous, TINY, greasy, tasteless lump of fried yuk. The lamb etc were just mush w no seasonings. And it really was so greasy I couldn't pick it up.
So...the owner told us she is trying to offer a "healthy" fast food option. I do not think anything we were served was healthy or tasty. Just because a salad has feta and greek olives in it does not make it healthier, just saltier. So...not really a soup place, just bland, overpriced, almost Mediterranean to-go food. Still desperately seeking a soup place!
