That’s what local writer and downtown resident Amanda Dorman and I decided when we stopped in at Soupremacy, a little soup spot at 7 E. Market St. today. And honestly, with the great menu options at the shop, just about every day could be a good soup day.
Amanda enjoyed a bowl of lentil soup for $4.99, while I went for the $6.90 tasting trio, a flight of three 6-ounce portions. I tried the butternut squash, chicken noodle and caramelized onion. All were delicious, but the onion was my favorite, with the butternut squash a close second. Served with fresh bread from Amelia’s, the three little soups made for an excellent lunch.
Soupremacy, which also offers side salads as well as breakfast items and desserts, is owned by the same folks who have the Potbelly sandwich shop around the corner. Soups are made fresh at Nicole-Taylor’s Pasta and Market. The shop (formerly Teapots n Treasures) is open 7 a.m. to 8 p.m. Monday through Friday, and 8 a.m. to 8 p.m. Saturday and Sunday.
