Soup First. Ask Questions Later.

we are simple: we make everything fresh and with real ingredients.

in this simplicity we are uncommon and uncompromising.

we will do this today, tomorrow and always.

We make fresh soup, from scratch ... everyday.

Every day we make at least two of our signature soups:

TOMATO BASIL, VEGETABLE BROTH & DAILY CREAM

Then you can customize your soup (for no extra $) with delicious add-ins. Things like: Pulled Chicken. Meatballs, Broccoli, Bell Peppers, Ditalini Pasta, Brown Rice, Barley, Handmade Croutons, Sour Cream, Shredded Cheese, etc. etc. etc.

We will also have daily soup options. Soups like:

Brunswick stew, Split Pea!, Clam Chowders, Chicago Chili, Hearty 3 Green, Gator Gumbo, Broccoli Cheese, Beef Barley. Hungarian Mushroom, Gazpacho, French Onion, etc. etc. etc.


Mission Statement

TO SAY WHAT WE DO AND DO WHAT WE SAY. ALWAYS.


Spicy monkey Oath

A SPICY MONKEY WILL ALWAYS...


… focus on comfort food and tradition. That being said, we reserve the right to put our spin on comfort food and tradition. Even the best traditions can be improved on.


… buy organic, whenever viable, source our ingredients locally whenever available and always serve our food fresh. Always.


… remember our customers are the boss. But it doesn’t mean they’re always right.


… work towards better every day. We don’t claim to be perfect (or that we will ever get there.) So we just promise better.


… leave everyone in a better place than we find them. We consider our shops to be a safe place. Whether you need some comfort food or just a warm hello, we will be here.



ONE FINAL THOUGHT

Everyone has their opinions about comfort food and how it should be made and we’re good with that. These recipes are our opinions. We make our food this way because we believe this is the way it should be made. We hope you agree.
