In a time when crowds flock to whatever’s trending, there’s something so comforting about a place that never changes. Sure, the soup menu changes daily and seasonal veggies rotate in and out of the salad bar. But since 1997, Stone Soup has stayed the same in the best sense—its well-worn colorful interior a welcome respite, and its healthy, made-from-scratch, Jewish-inspired menu ready to nourish.
Ditch the hustle and bustle of Church Street by ducking into this hidden gem any time of day for a dose of welcome simplicity. You’ll find baked goods just out of the oven and sandwiches on crusty house-made bread. The soups feel like recipes passed down between generations. A buffet-style hot bar boasts satisfying veggie-centric dishes like Seitan Pot Pie and Enchilada Casserole alongside piles of steamed kale and piping-hot sweet potatoes. And the salad bar is hands-down the best in town. It’s proof that healthy hippie food can taste like grandma’s cooking.
