So yesterday I forgot to bring lunch to work so after work I decided to go to a spot I’ve been wanting to try called Soups On Jacksonville, a gourmet soup company……..
They change their menu daily so click here if you’d like to see it. I already knew that my meal would cost about $9 so I prepared myself to taste some awesome soup and phenomenal sandwich that’s much better than Panera Bread, one of my absolute favorite places for soup and sandwiches. Hey if I was going to pay that, it should be good right????
Welllll to get right to this review, I’ll start with the pros:
1.) They have really cute tables with veggies and chickens on them.
2.) I loved the colorful images of fruit and veggies on the wall and the AC was pumping which was nice considering the weather outside yesterday!
3.) I have a thing for handwritten menus……..
4.) The food looked appetizing…..
Ok enough of that! On to the unfortunates.
– I ordered the roast beef sandwich and Maryland Crab soup. The roast beef sandwich comes with lettuce, tomato, roast beef, white cheddar, and horseradish mayo. I asked the gentleman who took my order if he could substitute my horseradish mayo with regular mayo and he told me he would but……..my sandwich….still had horseradish mayo….. (Strike 1)
I really don’t like to complain about my food or service unless absolutely warranted and since I was able to tolerate the horseradish mayo, I just ate the sandwich, which wasn’t half bad. The beef could’ve been a little more tender but not horrible.
I ordered the spiced orange iced tea which really wasn’t bad at all. It was quite refreshing actually. (Thumbs up :))
Ok on to this Maryland Crab soup….. looks good huh? Looks aren’t everything. (Strike 2)
Thank God for seasoning.
At this point I was willing to give them another try on another day until I dipped my spoon into my soup and pulled this out……A HAIR!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! GROSSS!!!!!!!!!!!!!! (Strike 3, 4, and 5)
Needless to say, I complained to the guy who took my order and he says “I don’t know where it came from because my hair is short, would you like another bowl?” Annoyed at his insinuating comment I politely told him to give me my money back, which he did, and I left.
I really wanted to like them but I can probably bet you money, I won’t go back. Panera Bread will do me just fine.
Have a great day!
