Amazing world of various soups!
You can chose soups with meat, soups with fish, just vegetable soups, soups like a main course, even sweet soups like desserts.
Fair pricing (but not very cheap).
Large portions.
To tell the truth I feel full even after normal bowl of simple soup using it as main lunch a day.
Bread comes for free.

The concept of the place is very simple - they serve soup and they do it really well.

The two soups that we had were both delicious and portions were indeed large.

In terms of price soups here range between 4-6 EUR, which is somewhat expensive for an everyday lunch, but the food that they serve here is worth every cent!

This place definitely deserves another visit!

It's the best soup restaurant in Latvia or maybe even in the Baltics. Soups are really delicious. I often cannot make my mind which soup I would like to order - they all are so good. Portions are really large there. Beware ordering a full portion, maybe even half a portion will be too much. :) And one more thing I like - it a real pure soup restaurant. You can only get soup and a drink there. No salads or other meals. The name of the restaurant means "only spoons" and it's really true and I like it. :)

There are three of these soup-only restaurants in Riga, all of which seem to be in shopping malls. There used to be one in Central Riga which doesn't appear to be the any more. So you have to trek out to a mall to find one. We visited the one in the Alfa centre by the river. The service was poor but there only seemed to be two harassed girls serving in a very busy cafe. The soups when they came were lukewarm and had to be returned for re-heating, but after they came back they we're both (soljanka and tomato cream) excellent, filling and warming on a bleak Riga day. Please open a branch in the Old Town! Excellent value. No alcohol.

For these soups i am ready to wait for 15-20 minutes to take them to go. In Olympia I ordered set of "two spooms" - two soups of 250ml each. Since i ordered it to go, i had two small buckets (that i paid for, of course) of soup. When opening this first soup, i realised that the bucket is used, and has had a sticker on it. Oh, well... When i opened strawberry-peach soup, i heared something like "pffff", and the taste was also - pfff. The soup was old and sour. Not as the berries where sour, but the soup itself was sour. Not tasty this time.
