So good on a chilly day.....(or any day)

Wandered into this place because I love soup and I saw a sign that said "Curry Cauliflower Soup" which I've had elsewhere before and is an all-time favorite of mine. As soon as I walked in the door I was instantly reminded of a similar place I visited in Galway, Ireland. The aroma was inviting... read more

So many good soups, so hard to make a decision! We stop here for soup every few weeks and enjoy all of the selections we have tried. A recommendation would be for them to offer a "flight" of soups. Four varieties each 3-4 ounces would be awesome for those of us struggling to make a choice!

Decided to try Darn Good Soup after seeing the reviews and it lived up to its high rating. Our favorite was Popeye's Sweet Pea: Different than anything we've ever had, and excellent! Cute, casual spot and the price is right.

Always good and fresh soup. A good place to go when it's chilly outside! But be warned -- seating is limited as the restaurant is quite small.

This is a cute little spot to grab some soup to go when it's chilly outside. There are usually several great flavors to chose from. Best for takeout as the restaurant does not facilitate a large dining in area. Worth checking out if you're a soup fan!

On a cold day, these soups hit the spot. My favorite so far was the Shrimp Creole Chowder. It was seasoned to perfection and I couldn't get enough. It's not on the regular/constant menu so when you see it, get it!

We had always been wanting to try DGS and did so in October. I was really not impressed. Guess I had higher expectations. A very small restaurant with fixed booths that were small. Food is in all disposable containers. You get a soup and small piece of bread and meat any soup is $1 extra. As small as the container... More

Always many soup varieties (9?) on offer, always including gluten free and vegetarian. I've never had a bad soup here, but Chicken Tortilla is a family favorite. Also like the Lentil Spinach a lot, and the Kielbasa and Cabbage (super filling). White or wheat bread and butter comes with soup. The larger size is a great deal, eat your lunch,... More

The soup is really good, and it's nice that they offer a few vegetarian options every day, but soup isn't enough for a meal. They offer pre-made salads in plastic containers, but yuck. Some additional menu items would make a big difference. Paninis maybe? Nice breads and dips? Other salads (beans, grains)? But my biggest issue is that everything is... More
