We ate lunch at Tanya's. My son has raved about it for years and we were not disappointed. It was busy but we had our meals in less than 10 min. The staff is very friendly and the dining is casual. They have gluten free, vegan, and regular fare so the entire group can find something they like on their... More

This is an awesome place to get some good soup and a sandwich. They offer a wide variety of soups, there are usually four different soup options every day. Their soups change on a daily basis too, so you are always able to try something new and interesting. They are always offering soups that are vegetarian, vegan, or gluten free,... More

Nice to see 2 lines, 1 for carry out and 1 for dine in. We ordered, sat down, and enjoyed a short wait for our meal. Very delicious, especially the soup. We each ordered different soups and all were generous portions with lots of substance. The only drawback was the loud music from the speakers. Everyone had to speak loudly... More

If you're going for lunch and want a table, get there early. This place is well known and gets packed quickly. Great soups, good sandwiches and one of the better bread puddings I've had in a restaurant. It's not you're typical wait and be served restaurant. You order at the desk and then they bring the food to you. Service... More

Great soup, sandwiches and salads. It gets very busy at meal time so go early. I enjoy the variety and offerings that are diet conscience for people who have sensitivities. I crave the food here sometimes!

What a find in Tanya's! We visited on a Saturday during the lunch hour. While busy, the line moved quickly. Very friendly cashier helped us with gluten free options. A great choice of soups, salads and sandwiches. The soup was great! We loved it.

Tanya's has some decent soups and if you like being waited on by immature 20 year olds and standing while you are eating then this is the place for you. I also hope you don't mind yelling at whoever you're sitting with or listening to strangers conversations, or them yours, as the people sitting next to you will be about... More

Tanya always has local favorites and specials each day to keep the soup's interesting. If you like soups from scratch you need to visit here. (She sells some of her recipe's in a small cookbook.) Also a great selection of salads and sandwiches. Try the bread pudding - it's wonderfuly decadent on a cold day. Also go early or prepare... More
