I went here my first day in Dublin and made a point to go back every other day I was there. The soup was delicious, and all the choices were gluten free. In place of the bread I had salad, all of which was delicious. And everyone gets a piece of fruit with their soup. There are also sandwiches available... More

Whilst this place may be tiny inside the food it serves is huge in flavour.The selection of delicious soups,sandwiches etc.is excellent and very healthy in terms of the produce used.The spelt bread is just gorgeous.The staff are very courteous and I wish there was more little eateries of this standard around.

I went to Soup Dragon on a colleagues recommendation. I wanted a straight forward lunch - but what I was offered in Soup Dragon was far from ordinary. There are a list of soups available (6 or 7) - which change every day, and 2 or 3 'meal's (like chilli & rice). And a separate board of sandwiches. With a... More

I'm am addicted to soup and when I spotted this little place on Capel Street I was delighted. Small with big queues at lunch time it's well worth the wait. A huge selection of soups from stew to Thai chicken and vegetarian options. The large takeaway soup comes with a selection of breads, butter and a piece of fruit all... More

Came here for lunch one time and didn't forget it. Brilliant little place. Very busy because it's simply delicious. Had a soup and sandwich and wasn't disappointed. Great choice for vegetarians and not the same old same old on the menu. Come here if you want something different for less than ten euro. Sit at the window and watch people... More

Had coffee here 2 days running as it was independent and en route to a training course near Smithfield Square. Loved the decor, the coffee and the staff were friendly.
