The Soup and Stock Market

2211 S. Kinnickinnic Ave.

440 N. Water St., 276-4444

The success of their Bay View location prompted Soup Market owners David Jurena and Tim Talsky to open another location in the Milwaukee Public Market two years ago. Their delicious bisques, hearty soups and chilis as well as sandwiches, quiche and homemade vanilla root beer made by the owners themselves have made it a popular and convenient lunchtime spot.

Soup’s On!

221 N. Water St.

Owner-cook Mary Krimmer rotates through a menu of 130 soups, serving at least four varieties each day, many unheard of in Milwaukee. Ginger parsnip soup? You bet! You can also sometimes find red bean and sausage, egg drop and chili. Many soups are vegetarian or vegan. All feature unique flavors, obviously prepared by caring hands over an open stove. The alluring aroma of spices in the soup pot is the first sensation greeting customers as they walk through the door. (D.L.) $. CC: MC, VS. 283-9244.

TLC Soup Company

324 E. Michigan Ave.

Family-owned and -run for more than seven years, TLC Soup Company (previously known as Soup House) is such a popular lunchtime destination customers are urged to call in orders by 11 a.m. to ensure their favorite variety doesn’t run out. Six soups are offered daily and could include anything from tikka masala, seafood and lobster bisque and Mexican tortilla soup (offered each Thursday through popular demand). Vegetarian and vegan options are offered daily, and most soups served here are gluten free. All come with a side of regular or specialty bread baked on site. (A.M.) $. CC: Not accepted. 277-7687
