Review: Zoup!

Today’s choice off the Breakfast Menu was Zoup! Fresh Soup Company:

Every now and again a friend will call me to sit down and bend my ear to their tales and troubles. Today was  one of those days where I found myself on the other side of the table while a friend laid out a personal issue. We decided on Zoup! at Stetson Square. It specializes in various soups. They let you taste them before you buy, so you have the chance to try over a dozen different soups. The soups were tasty but not spectacular. It was a pleasant experience for a quick lunch.

I decided to get the lobster bisque and the Chicken Toscana sandwich. The sandwich comes with  roasted red peppers, marinated red onions, provolone cheese & basil mayo on a Ciabatta bun. don't order it if you consider yourself dieting as the website lists the sandwich as having 517 calories.  The sandwich was good. I didn't like the onions, but I rarely do. The ingredients had a good flavor to them on the Ciabatta bread. I felt like it was a little on the expensive side.

The lobster bisque is described on the site as mellow, real-cream soup with lobster, butter & a hint of sherry. It was very creamy and tasty. The man behind the counter told me that it was their best selling soup. I appreciated its flavor. It was creamy and featured a good little chunks of crab. I thought it was delicious and I would definitely try it again.

Overall Experience:
Service:                     3
Ambiance:                 3
Menu:                       3
Food taste/Quality:    3

I give the whole experience 3 out of 5 broken eggs:

The food was good, but not amazing. I would say the soups were better than Panera, but not as good as a non chain soup place I visited not too long ago. I would suggest it for a decent lunch meal when you are not in a hurry and want to try a good variety of soups.
