I love this place! My wife and I go there at least once a week and it's absolutely amazing. The food is great and the staff is fantastic. If your looking for a great fast casual place to eat I would highly recommend Zoup! The chicken pot pie is the best by far and if your looking for a change up you definitely have to try the lobster bisque. I would go back every chance I get.

This shop recently changed a owner. This new owner is mean and rude, and services became much slower than before. First, a sample of soup just came as a drop. When we ordered a kids meal and two adult combo, they just gave us one combo. The owner himself took the order. So he obviously doesn't know what he is doing. Worse yet, the kids meal came without a juice box. When asked, he then said they ran out of juice boxes and milk. He should have told us so during order. Then he simply wouldn't exchange for a cookie or some other small thing, even without an apology. Finally we asked for cash back, he then kept us waiting for the cash back for 10 minutes. Eventually, of course, we got 1 dollar back for the juice box. So you see this is a dumb, mean and rude owner.

So just run away from this place. Hopefully this new owner will be gone soon.

One word. Disgusting. I ordered chicken noodle and it wasn't even out of the bag yet and the smell coming from it was terrible. I took it out of the bag and attempted to try it. I ate 2 tiny, tiny carrot squares and a single noodle, chewed it twice and before I knew it I was running to the restrooms at the other end of the food court! The soup had an unusual, horrible scent that made me gag without even trying it. After spending a few minutes in the bathroom vomiting from the TASTE (i spit the 2 chewed bites out) and went back and got my money back. Other than the taste, the prices were too high. 4$ for a 8 oz cup of soup? No thank you.

The soups I tried were downright nasty. The Shrimp and Seafood Etouffee was different. I wouldn't classify it as an etouffee, not even close. More like soggy rice and micro-fish bits. Gross. Didn't feel like eating Vegetarian Split Pea (what's the point without the hock?) or Pumpkin Pie Soup or Mac and Cheese soup. Definitely wasn't going to try the Lobster Bisque after the experience with the etouffee. I opted for plain ol' Chicken Noodle with a Grilled Chicken Fajita Wrap.

Now, when I ordered a Grilled Chicken Fajita, will someone explain why the chicken was cold??? Even McDonald's can make a hot chicken sandwich. If I wanted cold left-overs from my refrigerator, I would have gone and got it myself. So, the sandwich consisted of cold grilled chicken bits, not even whole pieces of chicken slathered in sweet salsa and a few pinto beans (not enough beans to be of any real nutritional value or add flavor, but just enough to let their presence be known - maybe 6 or 7 beans in all). This does not constitute an edible sandwich. Oh, it came on a whole wheat flat bread. Don't be fooled! It's not really flat-bread! It was simply the thin whole wheat tortilla shells that you buy at the grocer in the refrigerated section. Those should be banned, by the way. I forced it down, because I paid diner prices for my fast-food gourmet meal.

On to the soup. Campbell's soup is infinitely better. The Zoup interpretation of a Chicken Noodle was laden with square pieces of chicken (the perfectly cut chicken is a little nauseating) and soggy overcooked noodles. Total lack of spices. Or at least spices that added flavor. Somehow, the mob owned Italian joint down the street can concoct a different chicken and noodle soup every week, keep it in a simple warmer, and it's excellent every time. Why can't a self-proclaimed Zoup expert make soup that isn't overcooked and soggy? I was truly dissappointed that they totally botched a Chicken Noodle. No salt, no flavor, even sweet like it had a touch of sugar. I forced it down as well. And the humble Italian joint? They don't charge for their soup, it's just included as part of the lunch or dinner. Heck, they've even let me sneak up to the salad bar and grab a bowl if I just order a sandwich and fries! Soup's cheap, folks.

The highlight of the meal was the what they called 'French Bread'. I like French Bread! It was actually just a stale white bread roll. No lie, this thing was at least 4-5 days old, maybe more (honestly). But, it was the highlight of the meal, because I just pretended I was a poor German peasant during the Potato Famine eating my soup and stale bread. Or maybe a WWI GI with two-week old bread and a tin cup full of rations. Or even a POW with his daily allotment of stale bread and watery soup. I can handle stale bread. It reminds me of how lucky we are to live in a society where fresh bread is taken for granted.

The soda was excellent, though. Just the run of the mill soda fountain Coke.

I'm totally disgruntled with this place. I can't believe I dropped $10 on nasty, overcooked, and unbalanced soup, a disgusting, slapped together cold sandwich, and a stale roll.

Goes to show that if you paint some trendy colors on the wall, call yourself an authoritative expert, throw in a couple of token "Health Foods" and "Vegetarian Dishes", and charge lots of money, people will go for it. Total sham.

Oh, the co-worker I went there with had the exact same opinion. Only I forced it down because I paid for it. He only ate half of his.

This restaurant is a quick service space that features soup that hits the spot. One of our favorites is a chicken pot pie soup that features a side of crumbled pie crust that is a great touch. Whether you are looking for comfort food or a warm bowl of soup after holiday shopping at Somerset, you will leave happy. The place is never too busy so this is a great stopping place for a meal on the go.
