The sandwiches are so huge that many people order a half with a small bowl of soup. Even a full-size grilled cheese and a large soup is less than $10. The cheese sandwiches are made with a blend of cheeses and come in regular and spicy. The folks who created the spicy version do not mess around– don’t say I didn’t warn you! The Mexican cornbread is also seriously hot! Diners can also order deli sandwiches and salads. Side dishes include baked potatoes and pasta salad.

The soups and breads are made from scratch- including the cakes and cookies for dessert. The Soup Kitchen is part of a chain, with a few other stores in the region. The Lexington store is the only one in Kentucky and is located at 376 Southland Drive.
