Chili, artichoke, beef, tomato and carrots, I have tried them all. Parking is ample and you can also sit and eat inside with good bread they give to each meal. Salads you can buy, I love the one with goat cheese and pecans.

I've loved going to the Soup Factory for years -- and was devastated when their Bookine location closed. But since they've added the rotisserie section to their newton location or whether they've gotten careless and just don't pay as much attention to their soup making, all their soups lately are either way too salty or obviously watered down too much....

This is your true small kind of hidden place for Great Soups and even better for why we return often is the Whole Free Range Chicken for take out or half Chicken meals.

Soup is very good. I always get a pint of the lobster. Even if the line is long, it moves pretty fast so no need to be discouraged.

Come here for lunch nearly every Sat after kids' activities. Hot, fresh soups, lots of different varieties. Love the sides at the rotisserie as well. A favorite is brussel sprouts.

Call ahead or look online for the soup choices that day. Not much seating but this is a wonderful place to pick up lunch, or bring home something delicious and filling for dinner. Have eaten here many times.

Sometimes I just need soup! At New England Soup Factory there is a huge selection and I always find something that hits the spot. This place really serves the need for soup for lunch.
