10 Best Soup Places in Pennsylvania

Whether it’s clam chowder on a summer night or butternut squash soup on a brisk autumn weekend, the soup spots of Pennsylvania have something for everyone’s preference. From wine bars to brewing companies, here are the 10 best places to enjoy a hot bowl of soup in Pennsylvania. 

Oyster House, Philadelphia, PA

If you’re looking to taste some of the best soup in the city, Oyster House should be your first stop in Philadelphia. There are three soups on the menu: a classic New England clam chowder, Manhattan clam chowder, and the star of the show, snapper turtle soup. The snapper soup is rich, full of flavor, and packed with turtle, carrots, and celery. Sherry adds a special depth, and a hard-boiled egg tops it all off.

A Taste of Britain, Wayne, PA

A Taste of Britain does comfort food incredibly well. Each dish on the menu, whether it’s cottage pie, pot pie, a pasty, or a bowl of soup, is hearty, rich, and will warm you right up on a chilly Pennsylvania day. The soup of the day is always a safe bet, whether it’s tomato basil, mushroom, corn, or red pepper. And you can still enjoy some soup in the summer months, too, thanks to their delicious watermelon gazpacho.

The General Warren, Malvern, PA

On the Main Line, the General Warren serves up another take of the Philadelphia regional favorite, snapper soup. Stop by to savor some from their weekly lunch menu. If you’re on a tight schedule, they’ll accommodate you in less than an hour, or you can enjoy an extended luncheon for business or pleasure.

The Brasserie, Lancaster, PA

Lancaster locals know that the best place to go for a hearty serving of tomato soup is the Brasserie. Their baked tomato bisque is a fan favorite featuring tomatoes, mushrooms, onion, and melted provolone. It’s an exciting take on a classic, that’s for sure, and we can’t recommend it enough, but the French onion is good, too.

Patti’s Pasticceria, Pittsburgh, PA

Patti’s offers a ton of tasty options, like stuffed cabbage soup, chicken gnocchi soup, sweet potato soup, and cheeseburger soup, all made fresh daily. Stop by for a light lunch or dinner and eat in, or take it to go. For daily soup specials, check out the Soup Calendar on Patti’s website.

Stock, Philadelphia, PA

Philly’s Stock, which has two locations in the city, serves up some killer Vietnamese-inspired food and pho soups with and interesting ingredients like coconut oil and fried shallot. Their most popular soup, however, is the “Good Deal,” which is a Thai-inspired noodle soup with jalapeno, chili jam, crispy garlic, chicken, garlic oil, and, of course, noodles. Sounds like a great deal, if you ask us.

Harvest Seasonal Grill & Wine Bar, Multiple locations

While menus vary by season and at each of Harvest Seasonal Grill’s locations, you’ll always find a few staples, one of which being the local butternut squash soup. It’s rich and flavorful, topped with toasted pumpkin seeds and local honey, making it one of the best appetizers on the menu. And if you’re a big fan of butternut squash, you’ll want to try the warm butternut squash dip, too.

Isaac’s, Multiple locations

With the Pepper Jack Tomato Soup at Isaac’s is well known and loved, this year, the restaurant is offering a rotating menu of 14 different soups. But don’t worry, you’ll still be able to get their famous tomato soup. Isaac’s plans to donate 10,000 meals of soup to those in need this year, and depending on how much they sell, they may donate even more. Fill your belly and leave feeling good knowing you’ve helped fill someone else’s, too.

Hofbrauhaus, Pittsburgh, PA

All of the soups at Hofbrauhaus, a German-inspired restaurant, are made from scratch. There’s a Hungarian goulash featuring beef, potatoes, and paprika, a spicy chili, and a creamy potato soup finished with vegetables and smoked bacon. Fill your bowl (and your belly) with some comforting soup from Hofbrauhaus today. And if you need something to wash it down, check out their beer selection!

The cheddar ale soup is packed with a blend of Cheddar cheeses, Appalachian’s Water Gap Wheat Ale, potatoes, and two kinds of peppers. And topping it all off is a dollop of sour cream, Cheddar Jack cheese, and bacon. What more could you ask for in a soup, really?
