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

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.
