When You’re Sick… You Need SOUP!

So if you follow me on social media, you know I’ve been sick since last Thursday. Well, almost a week later and I’m still under the weather. Today was my first day back to work and the only thing I could imagine for lunch was soup.

Back in the day (a few years ago) there was a ZOUP directly across from my office, which I loved! I’d go at least once a week but it’s been gone for quite sometime. Since it’s departure the only place I’ve gone for soup is Heinens. Today I didn’t feel like walking that far and I wanted to try something new.

It just so happens that last week, I ran into someone I love to see, Marlene Philiips! She is the Executive Assistant to someone I truly admire Albert Ratner. They are honestly two of the sweetest people you will ever meet, pure hearts of gold! Anywho- after running into each other, Marlene spent sometime on my blog and sent over a few places for me to consider visiting. This place in particular was where she said she found her favorite comfort food!

I knew it was located in Tower City but I wasn’t sure where. My journey begin in the food court but it wasn’t there, I googled it again and realized from a picture on yelp, it was actually it’s own store. Lo and Behold, it was in the old Panera Bread. I walk in and was busy. A few people sitting down, but mostly take out orders. I was worried, I had so many questions I didn’t want to stop the flow of the line. I pranced over the hanging menu, so many soup options, I didn’t know which to try. I politely asked if I can try a few samples and the cashier (who was friendly as ever)  said yes. Two people in line start talking to me. One says try them all (which I refused to do lol) and another says you will love the wild rice soup, which another passer byer agreed. I asked for a sample and I was very happy.

I also tried the chicken noodle soup and another. Both great but the chicken wild rice had won my heart. I went back to the cashier and ordered a bowl. Convinced that wouldn’t be enough, I did as others before me had, and ordered a salad to go with my soup. I did the regular size caeasr salad. While waiting I ran into someone I interned with many years ago at ESPN Cleveland. She told me she comes here all the time and loves the food. Within a few minutes my order was up at the soup station, then a few seconds my salad was ready at a different pick up counter. At first I was confused, but I soon understood soups were handled by one person, and then sandwiches and salads by a few people close by.

The place was very spacious. There were tons of booths, tables and high-top tables all available to sit down and eat. I opted to go back to my office instead, but told myself I’d definitely come back and bring a book. It was one of those types of places, where you could come sit and get away from everyone and actually enjoy your meal without interruptions. I never liked to eat alone, but the older I get the more I find it rather refreshing.

The food was great! I was also informed that the soup was not only homemade but made fresh every day. I only spent $9.99 total! So a penny under my allotted $10 lunch. It was literally just what I needed to get through the day. Upon leaving I grabbed a menu and found out they are open for breakfast and do catering for large parties. This place, like many downtown has business hours. They are open from 9am -5pm Monday through Friday, and Saturdays they are open from 11am to 5pm. So if you are ever walking through Tower City or downtown looking for a good soup… head over to Susy’s Soups and tell them you read about them on #CourtneyCoversCleveland
