    Lobster bisque in a bread bowl is excellent. Cream of broccoli or potato is good as well. Ask to sample the soups before buying. Don't forget to ask the employees recommendation on mixing soups.

    It's cold and slushy outside, no wonder chicken noodle soup is a trending taste this week. Keep warm with some of Chicago's best from Soupbox!

    $2.50 for a grilled cheese sandwich when you get a soup. What's to think about?

    This place is always great. I had a cream of chicken & wild rice bread bowl for an early dinner and it didn't disappoint. You can sample the soups and pick your favorite. Highly recommended.
