Ok, a bit of an exaggeration, but I did order the grilled chicken and avocado wrap with the expectation of more than two tiny slices of chicken, each smaller than a 1/2 slice of thin bacon. I actually thought they gave me the wrong sandwich! But I dug under the avocado, voluminous lettuce and after some searching, finally spied the... More

Nothing to go out of your way for, but the soup is tasty and hot. My chicken soup was a bit too oily for my taste, but there's no denying that it was a "good" bowl of soup; big chunks of vegetables, noodles and a well flavored, herbed broth. If you're down with a cold, or you want to feed... More

This was really, really good! Cute decor and friendly staff. I had the Lobster Bisque, which was delicious. I took off one start, because my daughter ordered the clam chowder, and they gave her corn chowder. Even so, she really liked it!

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.
