Soup and sandwich -- my favorite! The Feed Store, a very casual restaurant in downtown Springfield, was terrific. For reasonable prices, they had seven soup options, and lots of sandwiches. I had the French potato soup with a turkey sandwich on a Kaiser roll. Hubby had a creamy mushroom soup with a Reuben. Tasty, and just the right size for... More

They have the best tomato bisque. I have even here so often they know my name and are very happy to see me when I come in.

It took over an hour to walk in, stand in line, order food, get seated, and wait on food. The line moved quickly, so that was good, and a gentleman took orders while standing in the line and was really helpful because we were first timers. We were sat immediately. The wait for our food was 45 minutes. 45. Minutes.... More

This is a lunch spot. And President Obama's choice for lunch. My experience has been mixed. Sandwiches are good but the entire process to pay needs to be overhauled. They have one overworked credit-card machine and a grumpy Cashier. Long lines which are difficult navigate for customers on a lunch hour.

Great place for lunch. We just stumbled upon it when we were walking around. The soup is delicious and the chicken salad (a specialty) was very good. The first time there you'll need them to explain the ordering process but they must be used to it because they're very pleasant. I will definitely go back.

It is my go-to comfort food. The chicken salad and potato soup are really good. Great spot for lunch while visiting the Old State Capitol or other Lincoln sites in downtown Springfield, IL.

A local told me about this restaurant right on Lincoln Square in downtown Springfield. It is housed in an old building with lots of creaks and squeaks. The atmosphere is great. Their claim to fame is their chicken salad sandwich, which is what I ordered. It was good except that I prefer mine a bit more chunky. The chicken in... More

This is a great place to go for a quick and delicious lunch. They are always busy, but the line moves quickly, and the service is fast. It's just across from the old State Capitol, so if you're here as a tourist it's nearby. If you only have a short time for lunch you can order ahead, grab and go.

We had read about the Feed Store on Trip Advisor and it turned out to be the only such restaurant that we were able to get in. Stopped for a late lunch. Very good chicken salad and cheesecake - home cooked. Busy place and obviously very popular with the locals. Efficient system for taking orders and serving. Limited hours so... More

This Springfield landmark located just south of the old State Capitol building is always a busy lunch spot for downtown workers and tourists. Soups are listed in the front window and menus are in a basket up front so that your mind is made up when you approach the counter to order. Salads, sandwiches and soups are their stock and... More
