Great soup, Small Sandwiches, Bad Attitudes.
Soup freaks has great soup, it is really overpriced, with small sandwiches. I was really thrown off by the service. The people working their give you the "Cold Shoulder." They appear to have no personality, and don't really care about how they treat their customers. I strongly suggest getting your soup to go just so you do not have to deal with their attitude.
I can't believe the Best Of rating is only at 8.8! This place is GREAT. The best soups in the area--and all healthy, too. But the best part of Soup Freaks is the BEST SANDWICH I have ever had, the Freakin' Cheeseburger. Organic free-range sirloin au jus with brie on a baguette, on a bed of greens and shredded veggies. SO GOOD.
Caveats - A little pricey, and the set-up is such that it wouldn't be that pleasant to eat in--recommend take out
If you know quality you'll love this food..WOW..!.
This is truely a place to go to if you want to eat great food that makes you feel great, just like their slogan says. I have been working in downtown for the last 20 years and have never seen a place like Soup Freaks. Every time I eat their food I feel great. They are fast, friendly and serve the greatest soups I have ever tasted. I also love their sandwiches and salads, which you can tell is made from real food...Soup Freaks: "thank you for making my work life a lot more joyful" :-)
I got a 1/2 turkey sandwich that was about 4 inches long for $5.75. To me, this is way overpriced considering it did not come with a side soup or salad. I guess I could have ordered 1/2 soup, 1/2 sandwich but I just didn't want to spend close to $10 on a lunch that SHOULD cost $6.00, if that. I'm not a cheap person by any means, but I do have an idea as to what food like this should cost.
$5.25 Oatmeal - Are You Kidding Me?.
Most expensive oatmeal I've seen outside of hotel room service. Apparently it's organic, and apparently they use steel cut - but I cant tell, since it's cooked so long that it's turned to paste. Nice dried berries for toppings, but they charge extra for them.
No Canned Soup!.
Most soup places have canned or pre-made soup, whether you know it or not. Soup Freaks' soup is fresh. They make it every day, and you can tell! The roast sirloin and roast chicken sandwiches are fantastic, especially with the Brie. Salads are fresh. It is slightly more expensive than comparable places, but for the quality and healthiness of the food, it is worth it. Plus, good food satisfies you more than salty or filler food.
For breakfast, the oatmeal is the best kept healthy breakfast secret in the City! They make it every day and it is cooked for 8 hours, not instant milled oats.
My mother has some explaining to do.
I spent my life thinking I had eaten roast beef until I had the brie and roast beef sandwich. There are a lot of cooks and chefs in my life that owe me an explanation as to what I have been eating in the past. The BEST sandwich I have ever had!
High End Quality Meets Organic.
The food at Soup Freaks is exquisite and to top it all off, it's organic! I can tell great painstaking attention was given to provide quality, unique pairings and an organic angle. The flavors are definite examples of this attention to details and quality with a friendly atmosphere and friendly service. Loved it and would highly recommend it to everyone I know and for companies to use for catering of events.
Every item on the menu is organic, hormone free, and delicious. It is a fast and friendly to-go or eat at the counters cafe. This is my new favorite lunch spot. Try the top sirloin brae sandwich roll or the sausage lentil soup. My co-workers say the matzo ball soup is almost as good as his mothers.
