Chase away the winter chill at this casual soup emporium. – The Scene
Young professionals on the go scurry in and out of this teeny soup joint; some stay and chow at one of the half-dozen small tables, but most head home with bag in hand. The space is simple, with photographs by local artists decorating plain white walls. Attention is focused on the steaming black cauldrons of soup that beckon up front.
Soupbox ladles out a dozen classic soups every day (six in the summer): split pea with ham, chicken noodle, beef stew, lobster bisque. Can't decide? Sample as many as you like. Friendly soup-pourers recommend mixing flavors. Try potato-leek with cheddar-broccoli--a delicious baked potato-y pairing. Among other flavors, lobster bisque is a standout, rich and velvety smooth. Big appetites go the bread bowl, a generous helping of soup with extra hunks of fresh bread on the side. In spring and summer, cool off with an Icebox-flavored Italian ice.
*#$%ing Great – This is the coolest place in the city. There are no sandwiches or salads but what they do make is great. One of the employees told me if we didn't make great soup we wouldn't be in business. Well they are and they are going on their ninth year. I stumbled into this place about a year ago and have been coming back like a junkie since. I love soup (if no one guessed that by now,) and this place is the best in town. Ask for extra bread too, they are eager to give it away. A very simple concept that works, make great soup and the people will come back, I highly recommend this place. Three thumbs up if I could grow an extra hand.
A great little place – I'm so glad that they're still serving soup! The lobster bisque is my favorite lunch treat. The staff is among the best in the city, and the soups are consistently good. The ice they make in the store during the summer is pretty good to - try the mango. It's not a place to linger over lunch because it gets so busy, but if you want a quick bite while you're out this is the place.
The Best! – I love the soupbox. I only wish they were open year round. Price is great, soup is great and the people that work there are great. If you like soup go here.
Lobster Bisque Yum – I love lobster bisqe I get it at every restaurant when it is on the menu. I've ordered it at the so called finest restaurants. but I can honestly say with out a doubt that the soup box is the best. I can only say how much I will miss it because, I no longer live in Chicago. but I will be back and we will meet again!
AWESOME! – I absolutely love this place! It's refreshing, healthy, and the people who work there are so friendly! Where can you find a place that has a fruit ice drink that tastes good and is good for you!
Soupilicious! – Best soup in town. Love the variety and the mixes. Staff is always friendly and polite.
Some like it hot.....some like it cold – I am a big fan of the Soupbox. When it's hot, I would love to eat Ice Cream all day, but obviously, I would then be 4x's my current weight. So, even more refreshing....italian ice. Good idea. Soup for the other 9 or 10 cold months in Chicago...great. I actually do think the soup is always one of the best in the city. Thanks
great soup! – if you like soup, this is the place for you:)
hey it's soup – this place is great for that just right soup. everything is perfect and the food is great.
