“Tasty food, tiny place”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 7, 2014

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 Adam's Apple sandwich, turkey, bacon, chevre, arugula, Granny Smith apples on a fresh Sunflower wheat bread, very delicious and unlike anything I've ever had. My daughter had the loaded baked potato soup paired with a half a wrap (a special) and hubby had a sandwich (don't remember which one) with local chips. We all were satisfied and ate every bite. Like that they are local, and use local ingredients, making it all fresh. Decent selection of local craft beer in bottles. Had a hard time finding it, thought Maps was wrong, but it's tucked in a little plaza and doesn't have a blaring sign. Lucking the kid saw it for us. Parking is available in a parking garage around the corner. We paid $2 for an hour. Would definitely go back if we lived in the area.

“Wonderful Lunch Place”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 7, 2014

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 behind the counter, too!

“At least once a week”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 5, 2014

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!

“Always an amazing lunch.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 17, 2014

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.
