I tried a few of the soups before deciding on New England Clam Chowder, all of them were really good. Prices were reasonable- I would return anytime I am in the area.

Staff was really friendly and New England clam chowder was wonderful and reasonable price. The view from the tables was very quaint.

Not much to look at decor-wise, but the soup absolutely made it worth the visit. Free samples are provided for each soup before you commit to a single one, which is such a help in choosing. We got the clam chowder and it was phenomenal!...More

I liked that they will give you samples before you commit to a selection. Everything is really fresh! The shop itself is small but that has zero impact on how great the soup is!
