Came here with friends and upon arrival I got the wonderful hometown feel of Oak Ridge in the Soup Kitchen. Outside the constantly evolving daily menu was posted and being checked out by passersby. I ordered the tomato and dill soup, with half a cheese sandwich. Everything was fresh and the bread tasted as if it was just baked. The... More

I ordered the chili with a side of cheese bread and sweet iced tea. The portions are big, and very filling. Drink refills free. They offer a variety of different soups and breads each day, all homemade. They get quite a big lunch crowd so my tip would be to go early for lunch. Such a nice change from the... More

This is a neighborhood restaurant. It may not look much from the outside, but they line up out the door just to get in. There are a number of soups for each day, always adaily special. They also have sandwiches made to order.

I enjoy coming here when I am in Oak Ridge. So why only 3 stars when I recommend it for lunch? It's just that it doesn't have any really outstanding soup that I just have to have. It's an older building that's sort of funky and not all that comfortable and private for conversation. You take a tray through a... More

We saw a piece on this place on PBS by Chef Garrett of Knoxville. We were in knoxville on Saturday and thought we would try it. Their hours were 11 - 2. We went in and let them know we had never been there, but rather than explain a few things to us, we got a strange look. we backed... More

Hadn't been to soup kitchen for a while. We ordered from the office- the food was great and the order was correct! The potato bacon soup is EXCELLENT and I heard someone comment on how many veggies the veggie soup contained. I had 1/2 sandwich, 1/2 soup. The bread on the sandwich was awesome! Highly recommend for any visitors to... More

Good soups offered in 7+ options plus chili daily. Unfortunately, they have recently stopped offering free soup refills. :-( Have always found the soups somewhat bland, but salt, pepper, and hot sauce are on the tables. Should note that Tori makes the best grilled cheese sandwich.

This place has been a long time community staple. My husband and I had not been since we were kids, so we decided it was time to revisit. They make vegetable soup JUST like my Grandmother used to make! The chili was excellent, the brown bread is great, and I love all the antiques/samplers on the walls. I wish they... More
