We dropped in on the first day of our two week US road trip and Destination Soups set a high bar for others to live up to.

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.

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
