Two stars for needing to plan to be there twice as long as I should because the service is soooo slow. The staff is generally courteous, but it takes at least fifteen minutes for them to take your ord...er, and sometimes upwards of a half an hour to get a bowl of soup once you've ordered.

The food is generally awesome, just don't ask for any adjustments-the one time I asked for the pork sans aioli, it came with it, and when I sent it back, they just scraped the aioli off of the bun instead of remaking the sandwich.

I live up the street, and endure the terrible service because it's close, convenient and pretty good, but, this would easily be four solid stars if they'd just be more attentive!

WOW, just WOW! A true gm for the Fishtown area! I went here for lunch on a whim and I am sure glad I did! The music, the windows, the menu! Everything was great! The food is simple yet hipster refined.... I loved it so much, I woke up this morning and went and had breakfast. We will be regulars. Where can I deposit my paycheck into because this is all I want all the time!! ;) See More

Hi guys...I work in the neighborhood and have enjoyed many a tasty take out lunch from you! I was REALLY looking forward to grabbing a refreshing iced coffee today...so I put up the "Be Back in 5 Min...s!" sign, locked up and hurried over. I had the exact amount of cash in my pocket that I needed. Checked the menu online before dashing over. Cashier rang me up and the price was a dollar more than what the online menu listed. The young woman behind the counter, keeping in mind that fostering good community and customer relationships are sooo important to small businesses, perhaps should have acknowledged the mistake on the part of The Soup Kitchen Cafe and charged me the price I was expecting. That would've made me LOVE a spot I already enjoy. Instead, she looked at me distainfully, like I had a BIG problem. I showed her what it said online....she just shrugged and muttered something about "letting someone know" about the error.

Damn, I really wanted that iced coffee!

A friend just moved to your neighborhood and we walked over for lunch. Great service, and we really enjoyed our food. We had a meatloaf sandwich, incredible! Mac and cheese that was bowl licking good,... and tasty simple arugula salads. Just gorgeous, keep up the good work! See More

Amazing food especially their soups and roasted goat cheese sandwich 🥪 and they’re vegan 🌱 friendly too. Staff is very welcoming and nice.

Had a love affair with a grilled cheese sandwhich. It got positively indecent. Plus a little side action with an amazing tomato basil soup. All while the wife was watching. So hot!

My only regret is discovering this place just now. Just had a delicious beet sandwich and peanut soup. This quaint cafe has ample sunshine pouring in through the windows and adequate seating, even w...hen it's bustling during lunch hours. The two girls operating the cafe that day were both polite and attentive. I shall return to eat the rest of the menu. See More

I think the food here is amazing. I've really enjoyed everything I've eaten here. Also, as someone who grew up in North Carolina, the Pulled Pork sandwich with the NC BBQ sauce is on point (Its the Ea...stern NC vinegar based, for those of you who know that NC has 2 different styles). I was highly impressed.

The shashuka is also some of the best that I have had.

My only reservations about the place are: 1) that some of the drink prices seem a little high to me for their sizes - though, admittedly, probably on par with the neighborhood. 2) the name. Its admittedly clever and the addition of "cafe" helps; but, honestly, the first time someone asked me to meet them at the soup kitchen, I thought it was going to be for a different experience.

Still, good food and over all reasonably priced for the neighborhood.

We used to like it but last time the staf were very rude. We never felt that unwelcome any where I am wondering if it was because we were speaking in Spanish at the table.

Love the food here, it's so fresh and the menu changes so it's never boring. Best of all is the service, and Bloodys Marys!!!

Meatloaf sandwich is killer...and any chorizo bean soup is a perfect side.

What makes a good cafe is the food, people, service, atmosphere and overall good vibes and I have to say that this place has all of the above! My fiancé and I MUST come here at least once a week. We l...ove seeing the same friendly faces when we walk in and we enjoy the fresh faces as well! This will always be our number one spot in Philadelphia❤️ See More

Yummy soup! Grilled cheese was delicious, seemed like it took a little long for tomato soup and grilled cheese to be ready but ultimately worth it!
