10 reviews of Soup Kitchen in English
Visiting midweek, the place was reasonably full, but we managed to find a space amongst the bench with relative ease.
When buying food, Soup Kitchen has a canteen style approach, whereby you enter and go up and choose what you want to eat - like you did at school, only here the food is great. I had their Pork Stew with brown rice which was excellent and full of flavour. As with most places in the NQ, there is a good selection of drinks available, with real ales on tap.
I found the atmosphere relaxed and laid back. The prices were very reasonable for the quality of the food. We also managed to pick up some Veggie Rolls which they had on offer, to take out. These too were very nice.
I'd definitely visit there again and would like to try it out at night too. I really like their philosophy of having proper homemade food through the day and events going on at night. It's a great business model and I hope that the place remains a success.
I went to Soup Kitchen for lunch yesterday. Man I like it around here, too many good lunch spots!
Anyways, SK is an organic feeling diner with a school dinner style dining room (wooden benches and tables, the chairs don’t all match etc). There are chalk boards all over telling you whats on the menu today, and the food is displayed under those lit up heated cover things. There are also loads of flyers strewn about telling you about the next good party / gig / fashion show.
It’s just on Stevenson Square, one of the hip places in the Northern Quarter. They serve yummy home cooked fare including their signature home made soups in here ( I went for Coconut and Sweet Potato with a granary roll, which was v good). By night they host a range of arts, music and cultural happenings.
If you are eating here, you select what you want then your dinner goes on a tray, and once finished you put everything back on the tray and put the tray on the tray stacker. You help yourself to cutlery. The staff are nice. Simple place to drop in for a delicious bite.
Last night there was a film night / photographic exhibition, tonight there is a dj music event in the basement downstairs. Eclectic!
I’ll be back because its unpretentious, tasty home cooked food in a simple setting.
I've been to Soup Kitchen twice and the food has been delicious both times. The service has been friendly however I would suggest that if three families with lots of children are left to run riot over the entire cafe the staff should have a word. I had a word to the parents myself and was met with a load of abuse.
Having said that, as soon as those people left we had a great time and the vibe was relaxed and easy going. The wine is good and prices accessable. The choice of soups wide and varied. All the meals are very filling, I wouldn't eat before hand!
Sunday 12th December 2010 1pmish!Lucky to get a parking spot! Early lunch? Late breakfast? Decisions! Whatever! Lets try in here So glad we did I had the breakfast and Steve had the Sunday roast

Yes a Top place to eat and drink all ages welcome and a great choice of food and beverages.Will definately be going again The Kellys
Really good food in the Northern Quarter. Everything made fresh and you sit on benches to eat. Free Wifi coming soon. This place is definatly focused on food and staff are friendly. Soups are good but they do much more than this. Not too expensive either
Big, airy, boho-chic, with lots of communal seating. Great prices and selection of freshly made food. BobtailPets is right, there should be more places like this.
I tried the Veggie Broth with Barley soup, and it had only a few grains of barley, while the veg were cooked in that endemically English way: boiled until they were completely lifeless. The broth was flavorful, though, so I’ll go back to try other soups and steam table items.
Note: the Soup Kitchen doesn’t appear to open for evenings anymore.
This is a great place, a new type of place to grab a bite to eat or to sit and eat a main meal. There should be more places like this where people can grab a freshly made bite before either sitting down or taking it with you. It promotes healthy eating and is cheap and cheerful. By the night the place transforms and serves great main meals. I’m also a real dessert person and these are to die for! I recommend everyone gives this place a go at some point, beats some of the usual places you might grab your lunch when you’re in a rush. 4 stars!
The Soup Kitchen has only been open for a little while but has quickly become a favourite for its huge choice of freshly made soup, sandwiches and main courses throughout the day. It's always packed during the day where the customers grab their food and sit at one of the benches, chatting merrily to strangers on the same table and resisting the urge to flick the arty magazines and books that line the walls.
It's full-on opulent here- chandeliers, huge candlesticks and great lighting make the place come to life during the day and by night, it turns into a den of main meals and nibbles to satisfy anyones appetite. Oh, and don't forget the puds.
