The Soup Kitchen
What could be finer than delivery or carry-out on a cold day? The Soup Kitchen answers this call with hearty soups and fresh breads. Chili and Vegetable are customer favorites among the rotation of fresh house-made soups, but more exotic selections, such as Charleston Style Shrimp Curry, German Pork Goulash, and Beefy Black Eye make appearances. Chicken salad and grilled cheese are favorites among the sandwich lineup. Daily menu available on The Soup Kitchen website, Facebook, and Twitter.
