Just wanted to pay forward for all the great information this site continues to give me..
I have come across a Soup Shop that has opened in Coney Island on Neptune Ave It's a new takeout/pickup place. They list about 25 possible soup offerings and prepare about 8 of them daily. Very interesting and mostly delicious offerings. On any given day you might find crab chowder, cream of carrot with ginger, potato leek, lentil with roasted chicken, lobster bisque. They note which ones are Dairy Free, Veg, Low Fat,Spicy, etc. They also make very tasty panini sandwiches, build-a-salad and 3 or 4 specials of the day. They give you a nice hunk of Italian bread and a piece of fresh fruit with every soup order so you can really have a hearty lunch for under $5. Anyone who knows the neighborhood knows there is a lack of decent food there, so if you live/work in that area, or you grab a pie at Totonno's, you might want to take home some soup. :-}
