Fantastic soups. Vegetarian and Vegan options. I had a lentil spinach soup which was delicious. Soups are piping hot and ready so there is no wait. There are tables for eating there or taking out. Great fresh bread with the soup. I plan to return to Darn Good Soup.

Third and last time I eat here. Each time, my husband and I appreciated the cheerful service and hearty portions, even if the interior is cheaply furnished and not terribly comfortable. And we also kept working through the menu to find a soup that was not over seasoned. Finally, on third visit we said to the chef, "we love you... More

Stopped by for a quick bowl of soup. The staff were friendly and happy to make recommendations as I'd never been there before. I had a lovely cheese and tomatillo soup. The flavour was great but I prefer soups to be a thinner texture, this one was quite thick. I'm bit sure if that's the usual there or not though,... More

This little restaurant right on the square in Bloomington, Indiana, is a real find. The place is small, but great. Each day there are about 8-10 soups...all homemade soups that are thick and rich. The soups come in small and large ranging from 4.50-7.00 ish, but the small is really filling because of its density. All soups come with a... More

If you love soup, this place is for you. So many varieties that it is almost impossible to choose. If you do not like spicy food, then your choices will be more limited.

I have eaten here twice in the last week. The first time, I had a squash shrimp soup and it was terrific. Yesterday, the chef recommended half corn chowder and half corn tortilla soup. It was so fabulous. My co-workers were so jealous when I got back to work. This place has the best soup and I am a big... More

For a quick, nutritious, delicious and inexpensive option for lunch or dinner, stop in at Darn Good Soup. The owner was very friendly and obviously proud of his food. The menu offered many diverse selections. I had the African peanut chicken soup, which was wonderful. My daughter had the butternut squash soup, which was just as good. I wish I... More

I have been to Darn Good Soup several times and each time it has been very good. There is always a change in the menu of soups. A great winter spot for lunch or take home soup.... I did!

Came down to Bloomington for Hoosier Hysteria and this was the lunch before the festivities. I got the creole shrimp chowder and it had just enough spice to make it interesting. For two large soups and two large drinks it totaled 18 bucks. Seemed a little steep for what it was but not too bad. I will absolutely come back!

If you want some great comfort food this is the place to go in Bloomington. If you want fancy surroundings or service that coddles you..,hmmm not so much. This is the best soup I have had at a restaurant bar none! I was there for the food so I was entirely pleased with the experience. I have not had a... More
