The Soup Kitchen is one of the places my husband and the guys from his work used to go to lunch when he worked in Sugarhouse. It's located in an older neighborhood--and is across the street from a used bookstore. Score! You may have a difficult time finding parking, but you can usually find a spot. The prices are reasonable and it's especially nice on a cold, cloudy day. You'll find cool 70's art on the walls, a huge chalk board menu and a clear-your-own table environment that enfolds you in a feeling of "welcome."

They're famous for their chunky breadsticks. The Cream of Tomato soup is so creamy and good it makes me think of the soup described in Charlie and the Chocolate Factory without the blueberry ending. ;)
