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.

Great place to stop for a quick lunch or dinner. They usually offer around 10 soups options. I've only tried the Chicken Tortilla, and it's amazing. I'm a little indecisive, and wish there was an option to try a couple soups before buying.

Got take out lentil spinach soup and it was sooo tasty! Hearty soup with just enough spice to make it interesting.

Family from out of state insists on Soup from Darn Good Soup! How can you not give them a 5 star rating. Would go higher if I could. It really is that good!

Stopped here for a quick bite to eat for lunch on a cold day. This is just what we needed. We had a smaller sized butternut squash soup and it was good. You get a small bread piece with it, and that would be better if it was warmed up. Soup was tasty with a bit of spice. No crackers... More
