Get Your Homemade Soup Fix At Blue Spoon Coffee

Some of you have wondered in the comments how some of the other offerings at Blue Spoon Coffee are, and I’ve forgotten to investigate. The second location at William & Platt (the original’s on Chambers btw. Broadway & Church) has been my go-to for a cup of coffee or breakfast goods when I’m strapped for time, and it seems they either make everything themselves or source the food from good purveyors in the city.

I really like the vegetarian sandwich I got there after the FiDi location opened, and this time, on a cold and windy day, I went for one of the three soups they have on rotation each day. 
Prices vary on the soups depending on which size (8 ounce to 16 ounce) and type (the ones with meat seem to cost more). The day I was there they had three bean chili, chicken & dumpling and split pea and ham. I went for a small size of the chili ($4.25) which came with two thick slices of wheat baguette. You can also get a soup and half sandwich combo if a completely liquid lunch isn’t your thing.

The chili was great, especially since I didn’t have to cook it myself. There were indeed three beans, along with a bunch of vegetables (corn, onions, tomato) and a little bit of a spicy kick. Some of you may hate that they only have wheat baguette, but I thought it was fine for sopping up the chili. There may be other bread options (like the ciabatta they use for sandwiches) if you ask.

Prices here are slightly higher than places like Hale and Hearty or Zeytuna across the street, but I’m OK with that. At least I can have soup that tastes like homemade for lunch, and I didn’t have to make it.

  • Nice, thanks for the investigating! Also good is the half sand/soup deal at Financier. I like the chicken soup and my lunch buddy loved the mushroom barley soup.
