They only serve 2 types of soup in a bread bowl. One meat and one vegetable. Not the best soup I've ever had, and not for the gluten-free crowd. Also my wine was served in the little airplane size.

I think they only sell soup in a giant bread bowl but it was awesome! They had a vegetarian or meat option. I had the meat option and I literally ate the whole bowl. Would definitely visit again!

We popped in here just on a whim and were not disappointed. A lovely warm welcome, nice cozy atmosphere, lovely soup and a nice range of beers as well. What’s not to love 😃
