We had chopped salad, two kinds of soup as well. Each was delicious and well prepared. It’s very casual and relaxed atmosphere.

Excellent soups - gluten free & vegan options too! Soup selection is wonderful and everything is homemade. We ordered soups in qt containers to go. Fresh homemade bread comes with each soup. You can't go wrong with Destination Soups.

Good selection of soups as well as other items. Fir example; cookies, cupcakes, gluten free brownies. They also offer nightly dinner specials. Might be worth a second stop if I'm in the area.
