I found.... you know that insect. It was not in my food tough. Small place. Oddly is mostly full. Regular taste. Nothing exotic.

Good place for take-out. Prices were very fair, and all soups, chilies etc. were served very hot, which I love.

The soup here always tastes flavorful, fresh and healthy. It's where I buy soup when I don't have time to make my own but I'm wanting a hearty homemade soup.

I love getting delicious, flavorful soup to take home from this little vendor in the Berkeley Gourmet Ghetto when I just do not feel like cooking but crave soup made from scratch. Especially if I have a cold or if I want to treat a friend who is under the weather to some tlc. They have an ample selection of... More

Delicious soups and corn bread make this a go-to place for comfort food. There is always many soup choices including vegan and vegetarian choices.

Delicious soups and a few sauces. Take out, though you can order a pint of soup and eat in the pleasant garden of the food court. The green soup is one of the most consistently good Vegan soups around. Very useful place. Not cheap, but a good value. Bahn-mi are so-so, but you didn't come here for bahn-mi, right?

Happy I tried a few samples before deciding what to order. The carrot soup was unimpressive. I decided on a red lentil thai w/ coconut milk and also a Pumpkin soup. They were both great. And since my husband had a cold it was the perfect match and doubly so when I saw and added to the order a slice... More
