    Calling the pumpkin bisque a soup is an understatement. It is hot, delicious, autumnal-inspired deliciousness. With whipped cream.

    If you want a lunch table, get here before noon. There's usually a bit of a wait after noon.

    No longer a laid back, reasonably priced soup and sandwich joint. Now a high priced bistro with an extensive bar and staffed with (very nice) hipsters. Pretension with a side of vegan.
