A few magic words will assure you a warmer welcome at Revolutionary Soup: verses from poets beloved by creator and owner Will Richey. You just have to recite from memory five lines from the monthly poets and you will get an immediate 10% off your order. That is the cool literary, soupy deal.
Revolutionary Soup offers original soups, sandwiches and wraps made with fresh, local ingredients from organic, eco-friendly and sustainably maintained Virginian farms. You can even check them on a giant diagram that illustrates their entire local purveyor map.
With two locations, one at The Corner and another in The Downtown Mall, Revolutionary Soup has a pretty large menu, changing frequently to include seasonal specials. Soups are kept warm in big metal pots behind the counter, while staff serves non-stop to the line of hungry patrons. Many gallons of tasty soups are spooned weekly by these smart druids.
Local people go crazy for the house classic Senegalese peanut tofu soup; the lamb curry mixed with lentils and spinach and served over rice with a spoon of Greek yogurt and cilantro; and the chicken tortilla soup. It is worth mentioning their outstanding variety of vegetarian and gluten free options.
Revolutionary Soup also has convenient combo deals of a soup cup, half a salad, or half a sandwich with a drink. A really cool spot to learn some poetry and certainly the place to grab healthy and tasty food when you’re on the go.
Hours: Mon-Thu 10am-8pm. Fri-Sat 10am-9pm
