I enjoy Revolutionary Soup for lunch or dinner. It is warming, delicious and the aroma is inviting. My biggest problem is deciding which soup to choose since the selection is great and varied. And a roll or slice of bread is a wonderful complement to the soup.

This is a great cheap option for those looking to dine in Charlottesville on a budget. I really like the peanut soup and the grilled cheese. I thought the thai wrap was a little bit salty, but I would order it again (it goes well with the Senegalese peanut soup). That atmosphere is pretty cool--quotes everywhere.

Other reviewers called this a hole in the wall, so I was pleasantly surprised when I walked in. Yes, you order & pick up food from a counter, but it is an attractive restaurant. There were so many kinds of soup! I asked to sample the Lamb Curry soup, and it was so delicious that I didn't sample any others.... More

The restaurant is clean and service is efficient. The sandwich I ordered was too large for me to eat in one lunch, but I tried! The prices are moderate, but a deal considering the freshness of the ingredients and the size of the orders..

A bit underwhelmed by the sandwich options. Ham & Brie was good but a bit underwhelming and drenched in sauce. Otherwise, very affordable.

Very good food delivered fresh and quick. The soups are amazing, sandwiches are delicious. I love the free apples. Be sure to stop in while in Charlottesville. Worth the stop.

Always a large assortment of delicious homemade soup so there is something for everyone. Small space, but worth being cramped.

Fresh soups, salads and sandwiches with a cozy, artsy feel. Soup menu changes daily, based on seasonal availability of ingredients. Fresh baked muffins, and soup samples make this casual dining experience extra special. It has the relaxed, unique feeling of hanging out in a friend's kitchen.
