Located on a side street off the downtown mall, and actually below street level, (yes you actually look down to see into the restaurant). Quite a nice variety of soups and sandwiches. Their lamb curry is a touch on the spicy side, but I think...More

Delicious little soup and sandwich place! Tucked off to the side of the downtown mall on 2nd street, we popped in and were not disappointed. Good sandwiches and the potato rosemary soup was creamy and tasty. We will definitely be back!

Revolutionary Soup offers the best food value in Charlottesville. The food is excellent and there are two locations: one on the Downtown Mall and the other on the Corner. I eat at both on a regular basis and they are consistently good.

If you can quote from the poets listed on the chalkboard at the entrance you get a discount. The food is delicious--soups, salads, sandwiches. Vegan, vegetarian and otherwise. Also wine and beer. Worth the trip.
