Fodor's Review

Housed in a slightly dilapidated old building, this funky hangout draws young, impecunious students. The name means "soup pot," and a cheap, ever-changing menu of hearty soups and stews, served with half loaves of crusty bread, butter, and pesto, make it a satisfying alternative to the conventional three-course meal. Shakshuka (a tangy, simmering dish of eggs, tomatoes, and onions), interesting salads, and other vegetarian and vegan options complete the menu. There's

a piano in the corner, a box of old records, and a chandelier made of spoons. Late-evening drinkers can listen to jazz two nights a week, usually Mondays and Wednesdays. When the weather permits, you can sprawl on the couches and pillows arranged out back.
