“Pricey but really good”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 26, 2011

Had bowl of lobster bisque..the daily special. Total was $10.82 for soup, apple, small piece of bread. Real lobster in soup and it was ouatanding. Cozy little place and nice staff. Just a storefront rest. In a strip mall. Think I overpaid but it was delicious.

“Not always worth the money.”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 13, 2011

I often go here but mainly because their easier to get soup from than a neighboring cafe. While the soup is good it is HIGHLY overpriced. I saw a previous commenter mentioned that you get "all this for..." but it depends highly on the soup that you get. What they are referring to is a small cup of soup which often doesn't leave you satisfied. Yes you get a piece of dry bread and a little chocolate square and a piece of fruit but that bill often is about 12 - 13 dollars unless you are getting a plain veggie no frills soup. The sandwiches are NOT that tasty here so if you are looking for that this isn't your place. The staff (depending on who's working) is okay. Today the lobster bisque was bland. (not sure how this happens as their soups are preshipped already done they don't cook them from scratch here!) Another reason why they are overpriced and the mgr keeps a bowl of cut lobster meat on the counter (getting luke warm) to dump into each order of lobster bisque. (Really??!!!)

“AMAZING!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 16, 2008

The soup and staff combine to make this one of the best places for lunch in town. You get the soup, a sandwich, a drink and some chocolate and a piece of fruit, all starting at 7.95! that's a great deal. They have salads and sandwiches and great paninis. You can take out or eat in, and you'll be in and out quickly. They also do free delivery and catering for events. The soup is hearty and tasty. I had the turkey chili with a 3 cheese panini, and i was full. Try it! You won't be disappointed.

It's a great place if you want something simple to eat-- like a bowl of soup, some bread and a apple for dessert. For sure, great place for vegetarians and non-vegetarians alike. No dissapointments for customers.
