I have been to Soupcon very often and I just love the different soups they have! Many options ranging from Vegan to all in soups. You will always have a hard time deciding between the different options. Arrive early as the place is small and it fills up very fast during lunch time. The best is to order your soup... More

Small café style in the downtown core. Not impressed a bit . The soup I ordered (only two choices available unfortunately) was cold and the bread provided was bland.

I am really sorry your experience at soupcon was cold and unsatisfactory, We are pretty busy and if you come at the end of the day unfortunately your soup choices reduce significantly however it is not excuse for you to be served a cold soup that is absolutely unacceptable, as an owner I can assure I try my best to...

My wife and I were taking our friend out for her 99th birthday, looking for a restaurant that specializes in soups, since she can't eat solid food. Found Soupcon on Tripadvisor and we weren't disappointed. The soups are wholesome fresh and home -like delish. The beer bread is very good and fresh baked. It's not a full service restaurant, no...

This place is awesome. Each day there are at least 5 new soups brewing. All veggies are bought locally and fresh. Never had a bad soup yet.

I've been going to this place for years with friends and also by myself because I enjoy the soup so much. I don't have diet restrictions but that doesn't stop me from trying their daily vegan/glutton free/vegetarian options (they also serve soups with meat) with beer bread/baguette (vegan option). This place definitely isn't your standard soup can recipes, they'll all... More

This is a hidden gem . Only open for lunch but the 5-7 kinds of soup it offers daily are always great (always GF and vegan option). The house-made rolls that come with the soups are also delicious, I highly recommend the Beer Bread roll.
