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

I feel awful giving this place such a low rating but I can't lie. This was not a great experience despite the fact that they have WONDERFUL VEGETARIAN OPTIONS! There was no line....yet we waited for the longest time for our food to be prepared. I have no idea why soup, that is already made, would take twenty minutes...but it... More

When in a college town, we like to eat at some of the local joints that appeal to students....usually the food is simple and reasonable and we get a good feel for the local scene. This was the case with Revolutionary Soup when we ate there after a very long day at Monticello. A little hard to find but don't... More

We stopped at Revolutionary Soup after visiting Monticello on a Thursday afternoon. Arrived about 1pm and there was a line up to the door, but it's a pretty small place with about 10 or so tables and a bar against the wall with a window out to the street. Didn't take long to get through the line, I ordered the... More

TripAdvisor and Charlottesville friends recommended this place, and we're glad we tried it. I had today's wonderful special salad--white beans on arugula with roasted tomatoes, a generous amount of shaved parmesan, onion slices, and lemon vinaigrette. Fantastic! My husband loved the lamb curry soup and roll. Everything we ate impressed us with its freshness and brilliant taste! What friendly people... More

There is a reason why this is named the best sandwich shop by locals year in and year out. No other restaurant has an owner that grows the veggies and sources the proteins locally. The soups are perfect in the winter and fall when you need a little meat on the bones.

The manager at the Inn we stayed at recommended Revolutionary Soup for a low key lunch. The Adam's Apple sandwich is amazing!

I have been going here for the last 10 years + and just love it. I LOOOOVE their lobster chowder, and have always enjoyed every salad and sandwich I have ever tried. It's got a really cool atmosphere. Just an awesome lunch spot.

The Adam's Apple sandwich at Rev Soup is one of the great sandwiches of the world. It takes a while to make, so bring a book; but when it's ready, you will want one every. single. day.
