Stopped in while passing through town and needing some food. Both of us enjoyed very good soup: girlfriend had the chicken chili with white beans - described as hitting the spot on a cold winter day, especially with the beginnings of a head cold. I had the Shrimp bisque which was quite good, stocked with shrimp and some lobster and... More

$6 for a half pint of chicken noodle soup. The broth was almost clear, like it was watered down. Lots of noodles and not so much chicken. I wouldn't have minded the price if it was really good soup but it was below average.

What a great find! We were on our way to another destination and happened upon this little precious soup girl shop. So glad we stopped in! I had a seafood bisque type soup that was really packed with flavor and the good stuff. The people there were fantastic and the price was very reasonable for the amount and quality. Not... More

This little hidden gem makes the best soups around. Everything is fresh and delicious. The staff is very friendly and knowledgable. Parking is the block before coming from the center of Hamden.

You will definitely find something to satisfy your taste buds at Soup Girl and the best part you are able to sample the soup before you buy it! Sampling is a huge plus, you can't go wrong! Then there's 4-5 soups as daily specials (different everyday). Also there is a large refrigerator showcase of perhaps 10 or more soups to... More

Great place with lots of soup choices. Love the corn chowder. Hard with parking to run in to get soup on the go. Menu is creative and changes often.

Never disappoint! Each day they have 3 different soups, so better checkout their facebook to verify the 'soups of the day' (there's always one veggie-soup). I like surprises, so I just don't bother, I just go! My favorites are: Chicken Posole, Spicy Black Beans & Sweet Potato Black Bean Chili. They have a variety of soups on the fridge to... More

Small place but great for two things: Soup and Cupcakes!! Both made fresh daily. Open for Lunch and Dinner. Takeout only. They also have cold soups to go if you're saving it for later. This place is fantastic, affordable, and delicious. Stop in here for a quick bite to eat!

Soup has been a love of mine all my life - I make it at home and have it out any time I can. Not everyone makes good soup, but Soup Girl's soup is fabulous. Not too salty - which is a big plus. The choices are always interesting and tasty. I know soup, and Soup Girl is great!! Come... More
