On a recent vacation my husband (who used to live in San Diego as a young sailor) took me to Soup Plantation as a he retraced his steps in his old stomping ground. I loved the Soup Plantation. Service, Fresh Food availability, and Price were excellent. The Manager on Duty greeted us as if we were old friends and made... More

We enjoy eating with the Family at this Soup Plantation whenever we visit Southern California. The food is terrific and fresh. The service impeccable. Servers will carry food to the table for anyone who needs help. The used dishes are carried away frequently.

Stopped by here for lunch before catching a movie in the nearby shopping center. While the food all looked fairly appetizing, everything was mediocre at best. The salad ingredients were not fresh and the salad dressings were all cheap products that tasted horrible. The food entree items, including the desert items, also all tasted horrible, or were bland altogether, and... More

I went to the Soup Plantation with my family when I was on vacation in the states. They remodeled the restaurant since the last time I went there (1 year ago when I was on vacation last time). The restaurant was packed with people, the food is still just as good but the place felt much cleaner than it was... More

Soup Plantation starts you out with a full salad bar. You can then select among several soups, pasta, multiple bread selections, and drinks. Ice cream, pudding, and other desserts are included in the single price. Our grandkids love to eat here and eat healthier than at other restaurants.

I love soups and salads...they have a build your own salad, muffins, pizza, great soups, and make your own desserts too ! I love the Chinese Chicken Salad and the chicken noodle soup. The place is not the cleanest restaurant in town...but the food is definitely good

Really enjoyed being introduced to this place on our visit to San Diego. We walked in to a large salad bar and chose our drinks. We were seated in the outdoor area with heaters and were very comfortable. Personally tried the chicken noodle soup, clam chowder and minestrone and loved them all. Baked potato bar was good. Break selection was... More

Soup Plantation is my go-to fast food restaurant. Because the featured items change on a monthly basis,lunching at a Soup Plantation can be a real feast. And if you're a senior go on a Monday to Thursday afternoon for an all inclusive price for the meal plus beverage (about 2 - 4 p.m.), and you'll miss the lunch crowd.
