The Original SoupMan

This rapidly expanding national chain has set up shop in the Minneapolis Skyway, trading off of inspiration and brand namesake Al Yeganeh, the legendary "Soup Nazi" of Seinfeld fame. While the staff isn't nearly as feisty as Yeganeh in his prime, neither is the soup as brilliantly delicious. The many varieties run the gamut from mediocre (garden vegetable, lobster bisque) to quite tasty (Italian sausage, five-bean.) The reservoir of varieties is nearly endless, and they change daily, so soup-loving locals can pick out a few reliable types and make a regular lunch out of it. The piece of bread, and free Dove chocolate that comes with each soup is a nice little bonus.
