My second visit- the selection is fantastic! Hard to decide on which soup or sandwich to try, I had tomato basil and chicken ranch wrap, my husband had the turkey rueben and she crap soup. Everything was delicious fresh and tasty. Heartily recommend!

There are a lot of fried and fast food places at the beach, but Ladles was a welcome change with fresh ingredients and food can you feel good about. Only complaint is that we couldn't go back for more on Sunday because they were closed!
