This is an out of the way place to find but well worth it. Mainly soup and sandwich shop but very good quality. you order up front and they bring it to your table. I highly recommend the meatloaf sandwich.

They were really busy so it did take a little longer than we expected. They have excellent gluten free bread for their sandwiches and gluten free soup! I thought I understood that there is always at least 2 gluten free soup options.

Only open for lunch Her Soup Kitchen has delicious fare. It is tucked away on a side street a bit south of the center of town but definitely walkable. The food here is always good and gives a fair amount of choice. Check it out!

Don't tell too many people about this place or we won't be able to get in! Great homemade, fresh daily food in a comfortable quaint setting.
