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

Very high quality food. Small town business with all the quirkiness and occasional annoyances, but overall a go to place of mine.

Decided to finally get around to trying out the famous Soup Kitchen. What a pleasant surprise! I had probably some of the best broccoli cheese soup I've ever had out. The wife was very pleased with the chilli which she described as "good as her's" and the breads and sandwiches were fantastic as well. I recommend the Reuben and the... More

We loved the soup, salad and sandwich choices. Their soups are made without salt so you can season them how you like, but mine didn't need the salt at all. It was delicious. When you pass by you might not think it looks like much, but give it try and you won't be disappointed!

Many choices of soup made in-house. Breads, salads, sandwiches, and desserts. Good, filling lunch under $10 and fast. Better choice than burger and fries.

My son is sick today but requested Soup Kitchen chicken noodle. It really hits the spot not just for sick days either. I frequently stop there after work and pick up soup to go for dinner. There is generally 6-7 choices. Don't miss out on the fresh baked bread. There are 5 choices of bread including cheese bread and cornbread.... More

We were looking for a quick and healthy meal for lunch, and The Soup Kitchen turned out to be exactly what we needed - we enjoyed it so much that a number of us went back several times during the week that we stayed in Oak Ridge. You can't go wrong with anything on their menu, but of course your... More
