Interesting inexpensive soup and bread. Basement space, but OK if not too crowded.

“Spicy Food - Organic with great taste!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 22, 2011

We had gone to this restaurant when we picked up our daughter from UVA in Chalottesville. She had recommended this as a great place for soup and she was right!

My wife ordered the Senegalese Tofu Soup and I ordered the Thai chicken wrap and a small cup of the vegetarian chili. The chili was extremely flavorful, but boy, was it spicy! I almost fell off my chair after the first taste and had to wait for the soup to cool down before trying again. The service was reasonably quick and they put put out farm-picked apples you can take if you order the soup. The service is a little slow but with the "free" apple in your hands, it doesn't seem to matter as much.

The bread that came with the soup was a little crusty and dry but since I was dipping it in a wet soup, that too didn't seem to matter. The prices were reasonable for us, coming from the Washington DC area. All in all, a definite thumbs up but watch out for the spicy chili!

The ambience is great for a small place in a college town.
