Soup First. Ask Questions Later.

We are simple: we make everything fresh and with real ingredients.

In this simplicity we are uncommon and uncompromising.

We will do this today, tomorrow and always.

Mission Statement

To say what we do and do what we say. Always. Leave everyone in a better place than we find them. Again, always.

We don’t claim to be perfect (or that we will ever be) we just promise better.

Spicy monkey Oath


… focus on comfort food and tradition. That being said, we reserve the right to put our spin on comfort food and tradition. Even the best traditions can be improved on.

… buy organic, whenever viable, source our ingredients locally whenever available and always serve our food fresh. Always.

… remember our customers are the boss. But it doesn’t mean they’re always right.

… leave everyone in a better place than we find them. We consider our shops to be a safe place. Whether you need some comfort food or just a warm hello, we will be here.


We make good food with no excuses. We make our soup fresh without fillers, artificial preservatives, etc. because that’s the way it should be. If this ever becomes impossible, we will close our doors and find a new business.
