Amazing Ingredients uniquely combined

When we visit Wichita we NEVER miss going to Tanya's. Just returned to Chicago and still remembering the 3 meals we had at Tanya's on our most recent visit.

Tasting the love in food is not something that happens frequently, especially outside of the home. Tanya's Soup Kitchen feed you love one ladle or sandwich at a time. Different sound made from day to day, and they are always amazing. Hard to find a better lunch spot in Wichita. I go every time I'm in town.

A breath of fresh air to find a place that can provide a light lunch... And especially refreshing to find a bit of variety for vegetarians! Quick, friendly service, and decent food!

You just can't go wrong with Tanya's. If soup is what you want , there's nothing to compare it to. Salads and sandwiches are all fantastic as well. Sure miss Tanya, but they are keeping her legacy going. I love small local restaurants that are good at what they do.

The best part of this place is the free parking. You stand in line to order. The space is small. The soup is heavy and the price out of sight.

I've lived 30 minutes from this place my entire life and only revelry tried it. I had no idea what I was missing out on! Every single thing I have tried so far has been delicious! I will be in frequently!

This is the best in soups anywhere & great sandwiches also. At lunch this place is very busy. I hope Tanya's can go on despite Tanya's tragic death!

We have been fans of Tanya's Soup Kitchen ever since we were first introduced to her delicacies in the old train station building in Wichita, KS! We have always enjoyed whatever we chose to eat there. And we followed her to her new location on Douglas when she moved. A family favorite for us all! We were so saddened to... More

Overpriced for the quality of food, quantity of food, atmosphere (trendy for senior citizens and seniors graduating from high school that are on their way to/from a garage sale) and the staff... The staff... Piercings, tattoos, attire, music was too loud. I could go on but if you don't get the hint yet, then God help you.

This is a must stop for lunch every time we're in Wichita!! Wonderful, fresh homemade soups, sandwiches, salads, bread pudding & fruit crisp. I had the Olive sandwich on ciabatta (chicken salad w/ dried cherries & cashews) & a side of pasta salad ( full of veggies & a yummy vinegrette dressing). Tanya's soups are not your run of the...
