I was pretty hopeful with this place since a friend recommended it. Unfortunately, it was quite disappointing. First the good; The women behind the counter were quite friendly and answered my questions politely. The soup was pretty good, better than some soup places. The bread was fairly soft even though it was later in the day, and mixed okay with the soup. They also give you a piece of cheese and a mint with your order. A nice touch.\r
Now the bad; What a dump. The floor is horrible, I've seen nicer garage floors. The chairs and tables are badly mismatched, and the window table is supported by cheap galvanized pipe! The ceiling is straight out of a warehouse, the kitchen equipment looks like it was all bought used, and this is a pretty new restaurant too. The paint job is shabby at best. At first I thought they were going for an industrial setting, so it's okay, but they didn't even pull that off, it's in too much disarray. There are large signs on the wall stating the menu choices, but no prices are listed. Prices are on a small sheet off to the side. And there's a reason, the prices are way high. $7 for a bowl of soup that looks larger than it is? $1 for an extra piece of bread? Considering the cheap environment, this price is even more of a shocker. With all the money they saved on furniture, equipment, and design, and probably paying the employees just above minimum wage, the soup should be about $2.50-$3 a bowl. Bottom Line; All you are getting is okay soup for more than you would pay at a nice restaurant and you get to feel like you are eating in your garage.
Pros: Service was good, soup was decent.
Cons: Price and ambience. Oh, did I mention the price!?
