I had delivery from The SoupBox on Broadway during a recent stay in a nearby hotel. It was delicious, and I would recommend it to anyone. Menu was varied, interesting, and I loved it!

Maybe we got the wrong items, or maybe it's the jet lag (coming back from Thailand with a 13 hr time difference), but this meal was not worth $30 for two people. The grilled cheese is super oily and the soups taste like they came out of a "gourmet " can. Should have searched for a Panera instead.

The lobster bisque was okay. I've had better but this was certainly passable. I skipped the tomato basil because it did not look appealing to me; it looked like vegetable broth. The sandwiches were unremarkable and the bread and crusts were hard. I asked for mayo and was told they don't carry it. The price was higher than what would... More

The cafeteria in my building has better soup for a third of the cost. OMG it cost like $9. Way overpriced! Plus it is deceptive. Even the server told me everyone thinks it is $5.50 which I think is high too.

We have been to SoupBox twice recently. The last time with 4our young children in tow. The best part is there are so many choices that everyone can enjoy. Samples are available.

Great small place to get a cup or bowl of great soup and bread. More vegetarian options than normally found anywhere. Great friendly service. Having a difficult deciding which soup to choose. They will let you sample them to help you decide.

Small cozy store in Lakeview with a patio for summer days. Great selection of soups, all home made and fresh. Try it in the winter, but also in the summer. It's so delicious you will want to go back the next day!

Awesome staff, Great Soup and Pocket Friendly. Tried their Cheddar Brocolli, Lobster Bisque, Clam Chowder Soup on our first visit and we're hooked instantly. They'll let you sampe the soup before buying and since we were there on their Anniversary, they gave us complimentary Regular Soup in exchange of one Like on their Facebook FanPage. We'll be back for sure!

Just finished our soup and loved it. On a strangely cold day in summer They let us try the soups before we bought so for us it was great so we could try things that we don't have in Australia. Service was friendly thanks
