Best Bowl of Soup: The Souper Market

Whether you have a hangover or a cold, the Souper Market has the cure for what ails you. Not even your mom's best batch of chicken noodle can compete with the 10 varieties of soup served up at this tiny spot in historic Ohio City. It all starts with handcrafted broths, made from only natural ingredients and simmered to seasoned perfection. The menu changes seasonally, offering exotic strawberry and shrimp gazpachos in the summer and hearty root-vegetable stews in the winter. An eight-ounce cup starts at $2.75 and comes with a slice of crusty bread, perfect for soaking up the last drops.
