This place has great soup and since it was a cool, rainy day in May-soup was perfect. I had lobster which was tomato based instead of cream like a bisque-it was delicious and I could only eat 1/2 before I was stuffed. Hubby had clam...More

Love this place - right in the downtown but could easily be missed. They have the best chicken pot pie soup! Definitely a must when you go.

Soup is not too bad. Prices are okay starts at $5 and goes up. The to go containers do leak found out in the car. Eggplant soup and double onion aren't bad just very oily and more broth than substance.
