Funky laid back place. Soup was so good! sandwiches are the bomb and prices are very reasonable. limited table seating so it's all about timing!

If you need a basic meal without fancy surroundings, this small hole in the wall spot fits the bill. You can easily walk here from the Fairfield Inn on the waterfront.

Soups are consistently terrific. The sandwiches are great, too, with all sorts of imaginative, delicious creations, all reasonably priced and politely delivered in a clean, unassuming and understandably sometimes crowded place Been there several times since moving to the area and never disappointed

This is my most favourite option for lunch. I have been here twice. The soups and sandwiches are just delicious, the best I ever had in my entire life. I am a vegetarian but the options are many. I will definitely want to go there again when I am in town. Service is excellent by the way!

Not a fancy place but staff was very busy. I ordered a smoked salmon sandwich which was really good and my husband ordered chicken soup. He raved about it. There... More

Great little place off Union St in Downtown NB, Never had a bad lunch there, During Chilly weather always have half dozen or so hot (and some cold) soups.

Nothing better for lunch on a hot, humid summer day... More

One of the best salads in the city, both the Wunderkind and the chopped salads are fabulous. Everthing is always fresh, with options for chx or tuna add on. Sandwiches and soup are above average as well.......Grilled cheese and tomato soup is a must once the cold weather hits!
