I finally tried Soupesoup (Duluth) for lunch yesterday. Despite living very close, I never got a chance to eat there (well half the time it was closed) but finally got in. From the outside the cafe doesn't look very inviting, perhaps it has some tinted windows or something else, but you cannot guess how warm, sunny and comfy it is by just passing by. Anyhoo, I tried a tomato mussel soup with saffron, pistachio, orange rind and couscous. It was very good. On the menu there was also a pea soup, and a bunch of creative sandwiches (gruyere and coleslaw for example...).The bread accompanying the soup was also pretty decent and came in a big chunk. My companion said he really liked his goat cheese pepper and asparagus sandwich. I didn't get to try it because I had used up all my bread allowance on the chewy bread that came up with my soup (on a diet, d'oh!) .
The real surpsie was the au lait. You wouldn't assume a soup place to make good coffee, but it was very good. I also got a tiny tiny bite from my companions brownie (damn diet) and from that tiny bite I can tell that it was chewy, moist and very very chocolatey. I wanted to kill myself for not trying the place earlier, but better late than sorry.
Since I know that they have wi-fi, now I am even thinking that the sunny dining room will make a great writing space for those days I want some controlled social contract while working. Yay!
