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. Inside small cafe type tables to enjoy your meal and or take your covered meal home or back to work. Many hot sides to choose from or... More

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.

Oh my what an amazing place. The selection of soups are to die for and are delicious once you get it. There are 3 different sizes and it comes with lovely bread too. You can get other stuff there too. Friendly and efficient. Very busy but well worth the visit.

Ordered carrots, brussels sprouts with kale and creamed spinach. Nothing wowed me: carrots ok and the... More

I almost always get the chicken, it's really rich, and get a matzo ball, it's to die for..... This is soup place, don't mistake it for fine dining, but all the soups are very well made, not inexpensive, but worth it, a great place to go and pick up dinner if you just don't want to hassle, they give you...
