Great Destination

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... read more

Excellent sandwiches and especially good soups. Many choices available, both in type of sandwiches and soups and also in breads and spreads.

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

The only reason I gave a 4 vs 5 star rating is that the parking is by meter. Also, from studying "Online Reputation Mgt", it's known that 3 or 4 star ratings get read more. As for the food, the "Italian Wedding" soup with a lot of chunky Italian sweet sausage and chunky veggies in it was outstanding. The Italian... More

My wife and I ate lunch here recently, before tackling the Whaling Museum. I had the spicy Italian veggie soup and my wife had the chicken vegetable. Both were superb -- just as if you made them at home from scratch, assuming you knew how to make great soup. Chock full of flavor and fresh vegetables the broth was delicious.... More
