Soup. Salads. Sandwich. Simple menu items, but enough to choose from. Located on a busy stretch of retail shops, this is a convenient place to run in for a take-out order or have a quick light bite with a friend or family member. Ample parking in the lot right next door. Ample choices. Vegetarian selections. Wouldn't make a trip there... More

Great for lunch. Service was okay but the food more than made up for it. Even the side items were delicious. Highly recommend.

We placed a lunch take out order from the NE Soup Factory and everyone was happy. The soup selections are amazing and what we ordered was excellent. The chicken noodle soup with a hint of dill was the fave. The French bread and rolls were a nice add-on to the soup. One co-worker ordered from the rotisserie side of the... More

Chili, artichoke, beef, tomato and carrots, I have tried them all. Parking is ample and you can also sit and eat inside with good bread they give to each meal. Salads you can buy, I love the one with goat cheese and pecans.

This place has great soups with changing menu every day in addition to fixed soup items. You can buy soup and half of one of their great sandwiches to make it a meal. Armenian crack wheat sandwich, which is seldom in the menu is my favorite sandwich, while there are many soups i could but in my fav. Great joint.... More

My wife and I were in visiting from Pittsburgh, Pa. We wanted something different and discovered this place on trip advisor. It was everything that was said and more. Soup and sandwich was excellent! My wife and I chose different combination and loved them both. Can't go wrong with this choice...

I've loved going to the Soup Factory for years -- and was devastated when their Bookine location closed. But since they've added the rotisserie section to their newton location or whether they've gotten careless and just don't pay as much attention to their soup making, all their soups lately are either way too salty or obviously watered down too much....

This is your true small kind of hidden place for Great Soups and even better for why we return often is the Whole Free Range Chicken for take out or half Chicken meals. Inside small cafe type tables to enjoy your meal and or take your covered meal home or back to work. Many hot sides to choose from or... More
