Fodor's Review

This tiny café and take-out shop serves an astonishing array of fresh soups daily. They come in three sizes, and you can get vegetarian soup or soups with meat- or fish-based broth. Best bets include pumpkin chilli and coconut; fragrant Thai chicken; beef chili; and hearty mussel, potato, and leek. The friendly staff make fine coffee and delicious smoothies. The cost of soup includes bread and a piece of fruit for dessert—excellent value—and they also do a decent grab-and-go breakfast. A second Soup Dragon recently opened around the corner on Ormond Quay.

Quality Soup

A favourite haunt of mine for lunchtime eats. New larger eat-in premises around the corner is great. The soups are excellent--I've yet to be disappointed. They also make a mean warm goats cheese salad.
