I ate here twice while in Charlottesville. The first time I had the Chicken Tortilla soup. It was great. It had just enough spice for flavor but not so hot where I couldn't enjoy it. The second time I enjoyed the Corn and Crab soup. It really hit the spot. It was the perfect lunch for a fall Saturday. I've... More

This used to be a great place for soup and sandwiches, but the last 2 times we ate there, the soups were watery and tasteless. The dining area was not clean, the chair bottoms were torn, the tables full of forgotten dishes and glasses and overall it looked like a worn-out old restaurant. Very disappointing.

Have dined here twice while hanging out at the Downtown Pedestrian Mall. Several vegetarian and gluten free choices. I have had soup, salad, and great conversation with the guy who took my order! Only down side is they are closed on Sundays!

On one of our last days in Charlottesville, we were not super hungry but needed dinner. I saw Revolutionary Soup, and thought that would hit the spot. The day we were there there was only one other table to people there. You order your soup, and they put it on the counter, and call the order out. All the soups... More

My wife and I dined at this neat luncheon restaurant recently while visiting the area. She had the potatoe soup and enjoyed it and I had the spicey enchilada chicken which was good but not overly spicey-so like 3 on a scale of 20. We also shared a yummy grilled ham and cheese sandwich. I can recommend this nice restaurant... More

I had the special: heirloom tomato sandwich with Duke's mayo on sourdough bread, salt and pepper. Talk about delicious for a basic sandwich. They know what they are doing in there, line out the door and the aroma's of their multitude of soups was amazing.

I went here because of the good reviews. The food was average. The building was run down and dirty. The ice machine was broken. The prices were on the high side. I see no reason to return.

We stepped in on a rainy day to Revolutionary Soup, a little "dive" of a restaurant on one of the side streets of the Downtown Mall. The service is counter service and the menu is rather large - tons of different soups, sandwiches, and salads. The place was constantly busy and you could hear locals in line talking about how...

My fiancé and I recently stopped into Revolutionary Soup while exploring downtown Charlottesville. The menu has a great variety of soups, salads, and sandwiches, but this isn't your run-of-the-mill deli. With locally sourced ingredients and a number of vegetarian options, Rev Soup offers up delicious food without breaking the bank. I ordered the Garlic Garden sandwich, which has roasted veggies,...

On a rainy day soup seemed appropriate . My tomato basil was very good,but my wife had to go back for more of the Rosemary potato soup . She said it was the best potato soup she had ever eaten. The decor is very basic. No wait staff , just counter service.
