It almost looks familiar, the colorful façade of The Soup Shop in the more and more vivid Oude Kijk in’t Jatstraat in Groningen. Since 2013 The Soup Shop is the place in center Groningen were you immediately feel at home. In a simple but atmospheric setting we serve you four different soups every day. Always with a good sense for taste, color and presentation. You can eat your soup on the spot or take it to your work or home. A whole new concept in town: soup and soup alone with a delicious piece of bread from the bakery along the street.
A delicious smelling bowl of soup, a tasting of three soups or our soup plank, you always enjoy a tasty and healthy lunch. Get yourself a chair and your soup is served in a minute. Our soups are chockfull of vegetable, organic and local if possible. If you are inspired to make your own, we offer you a wide range of recipe books, pans, bowls or cutting boards. And if you tasted the ultimate soup you can always ask for the recipe.
The simple concept works out surprisingly well. Locals but also internationals easily find their way to the cozy shop. We welcome many regular customers amongst them a surprisingly number of vegans or vegetarians. A majority of our regular customers buy a 10- soup card because soup never bores. In the past few years a total of sixty different soups were on the blackboards. A simple but tasty vegetable broth, Thai bouillon, spicy cabbage soup, broccoli soup with goat cheese, pumpkin soup with coconut and green curry, tomato soup with fresh herbs, always in a lovely combination of taste and color.
The success of this shop is partly due to the perfect location, the Oude Kijk in ‘t Jatstraat develops into a very attractive and vivid street with exceptional shops, all with their own concept and specialties.
