Six to eight fresh made, gluten free soups per day, chosen from a total of over five hundred recipes makes this small, "hole in the wall" bistro a must do when looking for a quick lunch in downtown Peterborough. Soup and a bun for two is $10. Sandwiches and salads are also available. Friendly staff and quick service complete the... More

My ham, corn, and potato soup was too salty and not particularly tasty otherwise. Very disappointing considering what I'd heard about the place.

All the soups are delicious. I love all the fresh ingredients that are used. I always hope for warm beer bread it is so good.

Been there a few times, great work has been done to please you under the soup concept! Each day has its surprises, served with great bread and a smile. Worth trying and warning: you will go back! Cheers,

For the soup lover! Everyday brings you 6 or 7 different soups to choose from. There is both broth based and cream based selections. Some are spicy and others just very tasty. There is also some awesome sandwiches to compliment any soup.

Cheap, delicious and quality. Vegan and gf options for soup daily. Do wish they had Saturday hours, but other than that, they're pretty magical.

My only disappointment was that I went late in the day and most of those interesting sounding soups advertised on the outdoor sandwich board were sold out (Jerk Pork soup?). I had the "Spicy Korean" with wheat noodles, tofu, and cabbage----and it was nice (although I'm not sure what was "Korean" about it). Good freshly baked beer bread too. Their... More

Love this place! Each day there are 5 different soups, served with beer bread and if you are lucky, it is being taken right from the oven when you are there. The soup is always piping hot and can either be taken out or you can eat in. There is also always a vegan option. The restaurant is small and... More
