Dang that's good soup!

I have eaten almost every soup on the menu but they keep coming up with new recipes. I have never been disappointed. The flavors are robust and the combinations are out of this world. Great place to eat, even in the summer.

Every day, these guys make all these wonderful, creative delights. There are usually up to six vegetarian or vegan options (clearly marked) and six meaty options. As the day wears on, some sell out and get erased from the chalkboard, but there are always plenty of choices. Service is super fast. The dining area is small but clean and well... More

For a quick and inexpensive lunch, I like to go to Darn Good Soup. Their regular soups are very good but I particularly love the specials that they feature, especially mulligatawny soup. You always get a nice chunk of crusty bread with the soup and, even though the location is small, it's not difficult to get a seat. If you... More

Nothing fancy. All the energy seems to go into the soups, which rarely disappoint and are hearty enough for a very filling lunch

I cannot say enough about this place. I have now moved away from Bloomington and miss it so much! Everything I have ever had has always been so hearty and full of flavor. The staff is always friendly! AMAZING SOUP!

This is one of my favorite restaurants in all of Bloomington. I´ve never had a soup there that I didn´t like, and their creativity and selection is amazing! It has become my goal to try every soup they make - an ambitious goal given they have a daily changing menu - but totally worth it.

In the middle of downtown Bloomington you will find some darn good soup! You will find a variety, usually a choice of four or five soups, the cost is minimal, you will get a healthy (and filling) bowl full plus a hunk of bread. This place is squeaky clean, the cooks and wait persons pleasant and happy, and the armosphere... More

They always have a delicious selection of soups. You can sample before you decide. While the price may seem a little steep, it's the same you'd pay for a sandwich elsewhere and you'll feel full.

Only serves lunch. But great soups. Too bad they are not open longer or in the evening. But it is what it is..
