Favorite downtown quick lunch!

I always hesitated to go here because it's a soup place I'm not a soup person. After one visit I was hooked. Their sandwiches are great! Their staff is super friendly! And their soup is amazing! Everything they make is from quality ingredients. I love this place and highly recommend it!

In a little Side street of Charlottevile's Main street we found this lunchen place. Not a very attractive interior, but the food was great . Spicy checken- tortilla soup and a great 90's sandwich for a reasanoble price. No service, but get-it at the counter, no problem. Leave the place satisfied

This is the second time I've been to Revolutionary Soup and I am very glad I went for dinner again. My significant other and I ordered the turkey club wrap and 90's club; I also ordered the velvety lemon chicken soup. We were both very happy with our choices. I believe they have happy hour specials from 5-7 and close... More

A wonderful lunch spot Thoughtful sandwiches and soups - nothing boring or standard about the preparations. Unique ingredients and flavorings. Crowded with limited seating -- but worth the trip

This restaurant has an amazing website that would make anyone want to go, especially if you are into organic, healthy, natural ingredient food. Overall, the food is prepared fresh and is tasty, however, the restaurant is in a dingy and crowded basement. We sat near a door that people kept bringing food upstairs to another restaurant. The tables and bathrooms... More

Though I only live 50 or so miles away from Charlottesville this restaurant was a new find and one we will not soon forget....the tomato bisque is the best I have ever had and coupled with an amazing grilled cheese sandwich...you will leave very satisfied and happy!

If you want a quick lunch, or take home one, or several, of the best soups ever, this is your place... Fabulous rolls, an orange instead of chips, great selection of cool beers and wines, best croquet Monsieur (grilled cheese with a bit of bechamel) this side of the ocean. Music always in sync with the place. Of course not... More

This has become one of our favorite restaurants in Charlottesville. It's a good place for vegetarians and not, people who like spicy foods and those who don't, and those who want a lighter or heavier meal, and our group on a recent visit was a mixture of all of those. Since there are many unusual choices of soups, we're glad... More

The concept of this restaurant and the food here work well together. The idea of buying local produce, the quality of the food, and the service was exceptional. Heather, the girl that took our order, was very nice and her knowledge of the menu was impressive. I'll definitely be back to see what else this restaurant has to offer.

We've enjoyed quick lunches at Rev Soup for many years now. Often we dine here when we are in a hurry, maybe going to a movie or to something at the Paramount. "Quick" and "quality" are not mutually exclusive. The soups are first rate, as are the wraps, salads, and sandwiches. The variety can be a little mind-boggling, so prospective... More
