Soup choices were excellent! I enjoyed the clam and corn chowder. For under $10, you can have a full meal that is very nutritious and tasty. Also, you can take a pint or quart of your favorite home with you!

I love NESF! Their chicken noodle and lemony lentil are my faves. A little pricey for soup but honestly the best soup I have found.

I had the chili con carne, which was delicious. If you come during lunch hour, though, expect to wait - the line was out the door and didn't move quickly. The limited seating area was very crowded.

Soup is really good. Highly recommend for everyone to try. You will not be disappointed Lot of traffic in and out, but that's because it is so good.

The New England Soup Factory is similar to Panera Bread or St. Louis Bread Company. The soups are very food, and the location is an easy ride on the Green Line.

From time to time I'll look online to see what NESF has for the soup of the day. When they have the Eggplant Parm soup, I make the 25 minute drive and stock up. It's the most delicious soup. Hearty and thick and so filling....More
