Specialty: Soups (Vegetarian, Vegan, gluten free)

Order: Veggie Chili, comes with a bun and butter

Cost: 4.48 Dollars

A tomato based bean and corn soup .


The chili spices weren’t overpowering so that was welcome. The bread is very dense. Soup is ideal for a warm day.┬áHas a tiny kitchen setting, with the soups made off-site. Very friendly staff.

Under 5 dollars review: Very filling

In Kenya we have a bean and maize (corn) meal called githeri. I thought the veggie chili was something else, but turned out to be githeri with a Mexican name.

My mother makes better githeri.
