Such a fine place to take a break at! Their soups are always good and fresh, the consistency of the food here is really one of the best traits that they have. The bread bowl literally blown my mind.

Pros: Flavorful, fast

Cons: Small restaurant during peak dining times

Come in with somewhere around five dollars (in cash) and leave very happy. This soup gallery offers free unlimited bread and a wide variety of soups (and salads) to meet any palate. Samples are free and remember to ask about combinations like potato and leak with broccoli and cheddar or clam chowder with lobster bisk. They are always creative, always friendly, and the atmosphere could not be more relaxing. I take all new comers to chicago to this restaurant and they all want to come back. I simply can not recommend this place highly enough. Even on the extremely rare occasion where I found something wrong with my soup they were extremely accommodating and fixed the problem immediately. Amazing service, amazing food, amazing prices, amazing location what else could you possibly need?

Pros: price, taste, and service

Cons: it's not 24 hours and I wish it was, ha.

After seeing all the great reviews I had to try the Soup Box. The soup was cold, they were out of the Italian bread. The soup tasted like canned Progresso soup.

Soup in the summer is weird but it certainly hi+ the spot today for lunch! The pitch is 12 soups made daily. We went with the Lobster Bisque and New England Clam Chowder - both were absolutely better than what you'd find anywhere else. If you want to be normal and celebrate summer, try their flavored ice gelato-ish cold creations. Also made fresh daily, the icy treats are made with REAL fruit - an excellent/refreshing/healtly lunch dessert for a great price!!!

Pros: Excellent soup and wonderful icy creations!

Cons: You definitely need to walk here - no parking. Cash only.

I love the soup selection and the prices are bueno. The bread is also very yummy.

The ice on the other hand is mediocre at best. It's too watery and sugary. It could use a lot more fruit and flavor and much less sugar. It's a good price, but I'd pay more for it to taste better.

I like the neighborhood feel too.

I was one of the people who was there when it first opened and visited it almost every day. I LOVE THIS PLACE!!! Unfortnately, I moved to the suburbs and there is nothing like it here. I'm still going through withdrawal 5 years later. I wish they would franchise it. It would be a gold mine in the suburban office parks. When friends head into the city, I always tell them to stop by and pick me up something. Miss you guys terribly!!

I travel back-and-forth between Chicago and Colorado on a weekly basis. My hobby in Chicago is finding GOOD places to eat. The SoupBox is one of those places. The soups they make are AWESOME. The staff are always friendly.. Heck - they even tolerated me sitting in there to eat with my Denver Broncos Jacket on!! All soups are great and HOT!! The bread bowl is a great way to enjoy the soup as well as the accompanying "soggy bread" that becomes part of the bowl!!

incredibly good soups, staff. We're very lucky to have them here. I could live on soup, but I'm choosy, and The Soup Box is for real-a must go-eat-eat some more-go back every day place!!!!! Can you tell how I feel about this place?

Soupbox has a great selection of home made soups and I can't say that I've ever had one that wasn't EXCELLENT. It's more than I usually would like to spend on a bowl of soup ($6-7), but at least I can leave with a full warm belly.

This is the coolest place in the city. There are no sandwiches or salads but what they do make is great. One of the employees told me if we didn't make great soup we wouldn't be in business. Well they are and they are going on their ninth year. I stumbled into this place about a year ago and have been coming back like a junkie since. I love soup (if no one guessed that by now,) and this place is the best in town. Ask for extra bread too, they are eager to give it away. A very simple concept that works, make great soup and the people will come back, I highly recommend this place. Three thumbs up if I could grow an extra hand.

I'm so glad that they're still serving soup! The lobster bisque is my favorite lunch treat. The staff is among the best in the city, and the soups are consistently good. The ice they make in the store during the summer is pretty good to - try the mango. It's not a place to linger over lunch because it gets so busy, but if you want a quick bite while you're out this is the place.

I love lobster bisqe I get it at every restaurant when it is on the menu. I've ordered it at the so called finest restaurants. but I can honestly say with out a doubt that the soup box is the best. I can only say how much I will miss it because, I no longer live in Chicago. but I will be back and we will meet again!

I am a big fan of the Soupbox. When it's hot, I would love to eat Ice Cream all day, but obviously, I would then be 4x's my current weight. So, even more refreshing....italian ice. Good idea. Soup for the other 9 or 10 cold months in Chicago...great. I actually do think the soup is always one of the best in the city. Thanks

The variety of choices is amazing -- it's hard to pick just one. But, be careful, the temperature of the soup can be outrageously hot. I got split pea here and honestly had to want 15 minutes for it to cool down. Most folks run in and take their soup to go, but the tables are comfortable enough it you want to stay and eat.

Young professionals on the go scurry in and out of this teeny soup joint; some stay and chow at one of the half-dozen small tables, but most head home with bag in hand. The space is simple, with photographs by local…
