$7.90 for cup of takeout soup!

KitchenVoodoo | Nov 19, 201405:02 PM     21

Am I being overly frugal these days, or is $7.90 a fair price for a cup of takeout soup containing split peas, potatoes, a few bits of carrot, and bits of ham? None of those ingredients are expensive or rare. Nor was the soup billed as organic. And with respect to its taste, it was as forgettable as any old bowl of take out split pea soup. I queried the price, but the server was not able to explain how the prices are arrived at.
Perhaps this is just what people pay in that area (not my normal stomping ground). Epi bakery café on Bayview
