Have been coming here for a few years and have not tried anything I did not like. They let you sample the soups beforehand. Everything tastes super fresh and is fantastic. The lobster bisque is amazing. Highly recommend it

This is one of the best places around for a quick lunch. They have plenty of options of soups and sandwiches to choose from. Chili or clam and corn chowder are great. I always get the combo with a Italian and soup. Give it a try if you are in the area.

Soups are terrific, as are sandwiches. Serving sizes (even for the combos) are quite generous. Great place

Small clean place for a quick stop for hearty, healthy soup. Soups are almost a complete meal in themselves. One can also get salads.

Not only does this spot have great fresh soups, but a variety of salads, appetizers, and sandwich makings. They don't disappoint. There is adequate parking, and you can choose between a "fast food" eat in or a take out experience. You will find a friendly staff.

I love, love, love the New England Soup Factory chicken soup with noodles or matzo balls. It has gotten me through many colds and bouts with the flu. I bring it as gifts to sick friends and after my grandson was born, it was a mainstay for my son and daughter-in-law.

Did not care for anything I have purchased here. Looks delicious but everything I found to be too salty or over seasoned.

Soups, salads, and sandwiches here are all great. They allow you to taste test the coup before selecting so anyone who has ever complained about this place is a moron. They get super busy around lunch time but move the line along pretty quickly so don't be intimidated by people standing out the door.

We usually get take out for supper. The soup is very good but not great. Most of them have too much pepper. I don't like having to drink water to cleanse my palate with every other spoonful. We can add more salt and pepper on our own. As they say you can add more but you can take it out!... More
