Excellent soups - gluten free & vegan options too! Soup selection is wonderful and everything is homemade. We ordered soups in qt containers to go. Fresh homemade bread comes with each soup. You can't go wrong with Destination Soups.

Good selection of soups as well as other items. Fir example; cookies, cupcakes, gluten free brownies. They also offer nightly dinner specials. Might be worth a second stop if I'm in the area.

A gem of a place in downtown NB for lunch. Don't let the unassuming exterior fool you! This place has homemade soups, hearty yet healthy sandwiches and tons of veggie and vegan options. Love it. Try the Wunderkind salad for a super-heatlhy lunch.
