Craving Soup? 11 Local Places for the Best Take Out Soup

By Barbara Evangelista, Publisher January 12, 2022

Soup is one of life's necessities -- a bowl of delicious soup and a crusty roll is a perfect meal, especially on a cold day.  Here are 11 local places that make excellent soup to go.  Pick up a quart to heat up for dinner or stock the freezer so you have plenty for the next snowstorm or to give to a sick friend.  My husband often picks up several quarts of chowder to bring down to Pennsylvania when he visits family.
