A calm, cozy nook inside MPH Bookstore, far from The Curve's madding crowd.
Pumpkin soup in "farmer bread." Their specialty is soup, served in box-shaped bread bowls made of wheat and rye. A cool concept, but the bread was too chewy (perhaps to make it resilient enough to handle the hot soup), while the broth could have been sweeter.
Clam chowder with garlic bread & salad. Contained lots of clam slices, but somehow, the soup had an overly processed feel to it. Still, portions are hearty enough for the low prices.
