One of the best places to warm up during the colder months here in Chicago is at Soup Box. Employees of Soup Box are always welcoming and entice you with free samples! I think sometimes when I go in there they are so generous with offering samples I get full just trying everything before I even decide what I want! But have no fear, they will offer up some sage advice on mixing soups to get even more unique flavor experience than their already delicious options if you can’t decide.
All soups come with free sourdough or multigrain bread. For those that are extremely hungry, I recommend getting a bread bowl. If you do decide to get a bread bowl you absolutely must scoop out those bread guts from within your soup bowl to get all that soaked up soup goodness.
