Stop in for lunch or before the Z

I love Destination Soups for the variety of soups and sandwiches. A bowl of soup and a sandwich is the best comfort food. In the winter, I have lunch there at least twice a week. My only complaint about DS is that on very cold days, the restaurant runs a little cold - but don't let that stop you.

Went to 50s night downtown then stopped in for a bite. We were really surprised I read about all the good revues and must admit there right on the money.My wife and I shared the tomato and basil soup and a plain grilled cheese on sourdough bread and both were great. we will be back soon.

While the decor is nothing fancy, the food is outstanding. You place your order at the counter, and service is close to immediate. Highly recommend if you are pressed for time. I had a soup special of the day, the Moroccan Clam Chowder which was full of clams and had a nice heat to it. With that I had a... More

Destination Soup in New Bedford, Ma. offers unique, homemade soup, salad and sandwich options. I happen to love their Kale Soup and Wunderkind salad. Delicious and filling. It's a nice option to something more "chain-like" in regards to a sandwich shop. If you are in the New Bedford area you must try it out. You won't be disappointed.

A local sandwich and soup shop, in the heart of New Bedford. A bit funky, but good and creative food with good veggie and traditional choices. I had the sweet potato soup definitely great, and a chicken wrap, good, but a bit salty and fatty for my taste.

Visiting the nearby Whaling Museum and National Historic site and this place was recommended by a local as the place to go for lunch. We were not disappointed. Friendly service and outstanding lunch food. From the multiple soup choices to the unbelievable grilled cheese sandwiches that the whole family enjoyed we were extremely pleased. Personally, I liked the Pesto Salmon... More
