This place is kind of cute and right on the Square in downtown Bloomington. I will venture a guess and estimate there are enough seats for 20 people total. On the Street Parking spaces are at a premium. I had the chicken pot pie soup. Everything seem to be very fresh, but there were no seasonings at all and seemed... More

Title says it all. Fast service and low cost for average tasting food. Nothing special. Low cost nourishment that beats fast food chains.

In the summer there is nothing like their cold gazpacho soup! It tastes delicious, and really I could eat it year round.

I've been here around 4 times or so. I apologize to the owners, no disrespect, but none of the soups were memorable. Neither great nor terrible. Just average. My main and only complaint however is the plastic and paper serving bowls, plates and utensils. Nothing gets washed or re-used. There were not recycling bins available either. So if you are... More

This little storefront on the Square in Bloomington, IN has such an array of up to at least 8 but usually more soups and chili. Little tables up to 4 if you stay, but many "get to go" Fresh ingredients, hot and bread or crackers are included. They have Vegetarian and Gluten Free as well. You will find a soup... More

We went here on a very cold day because of the reviews we read. It is not a destination but it was a good meal. The lentil and spinach with multi grain bread and a salad. The place is very small so seating is an issue.

Wonderful, flavorful soups. Meat, veggie and vegan options every day. Great for large groups, quick lunches and children. One of my favorite spots downtown!

All home made soups. Wide selection. Good quality and fresh. Can be crowded at lunch. But always got a seat even if a little wait. Friendly service. Vegitarian about half of their soup offerings.

Thank Robert B
