This health conscious restaurant was located on the west edge of Chicago's Loop. The interior design of the eatery reflects the "soup" theme, with warm colors and shapes that draw clientele into this 1,500 square foot storefront. Patrons order soup at a copper-clad steam table that resembles a large soup bowl and diners eat at either the family-style zinc-clad table in the center of the restaurant or at the counters that run along the restaurant's sidewalls. Unique interior details include a prominent tin cornice, a zinc backsplash, and a back-lit picture-box located behind the cash register which is designed to give the impression that one is looking out of a kitchen window. Running bond ceramic tile, typical of that found in the 1920s, "gingerbread" trim, and a detailed vintage tile floor inlaid with a bold gingham pattern, add to the vintage "grandma's kitchen" feel of the interior.
