Soup!

Sometimes I just need soup! At New England Soup Factory there is a huge selection and I always find something that hits the spot. This place really serves the need for soup for lunch.

Come here for lunch nearly every Sat after kids' activities. Hot, fresh soups, lots of different varieties. Love the sides at the rotisserie as well. A favorite is brussel sprouts.

Call ahead or look online for the soup choices that day. Not much seating but this is a wonderful place to pick up lunch, or bring home something delicious and filling for dinner. Have eaten here many times.

Oh my what an amazing place. The selection of soups are to die for and are delicious once you get it. There are 3 different sizes and it comes with lovely bread too. You can get other stuff there too. Friendly and efficient. Very busy but well worth the visit.

This review is for Modern Rotisserie attached to and part of New England Soup Factory. Wanted to try some side dishes for possible Thanksgiving order; Staff not very accommodating in terms of trying foods. Ended up purchasing Vegetarian Plate with 3 items on it.

I almost always get the chicken, it's really rich, and get a matzo ball, it's to die for..... This is soup place, don't mistake it for fine dining, but all the soups are very well made, not inexpensive, but worth it, a great place to go and pick up dinner if you just don't want to hassle, they give you...

I frequent the soup factory and you can't find fresher soup anywhere. Their variety is great and the staff is so helpful and friendly. I also love their rotisserie chicken and the sides. Perfect answer for anyone who doesn't want to make dinner. Kudos to the owners Marjorie and Paul.
