Popular restaurant which has a great selection of soups, stews and chowders. Great for a quick bite on a crisp fall day or in the dead of winter. The chili, chicken soup and corn chowder are all winners, and the line, which often stretches out...More

This is a great place to dine if you enjoy fresh soups and sandwiches. It was somewhat difficult to find on GPS. The seating is limited, but they also have takeout. Highly recommend.

Good for take out: heart soups, sandwiches and salads. Pricey but fresh ingredients. Chicken soup is good but don't Oder the matzo ball which looks (and tastes) like a rectangular slab of cement. Have you ever heard of a rectangular matzo ball?

This is not high end but the soup is hot and yummy and a quick, reasonably healthy thing to eat if you're in a hurry and don't need somewhere glamorous.

What a gem to find. Googled it for lunch after an early trip to doctors in Boston. Delicious.....and a cute place. I had Chicken Pot Pie soup. It hit the spot on a cold day. Took half of it home. Came with a multi grain...More

Wonderful "home" cooking. Soups are home made, quite imaginative, salads and sandwiches are pricey however, the portion sizes are large.
