I read a few reviews here and I gotta take issue with some of the posters. Soup Plus is incredible in terms of quality and menu, and has incredibly wallet-friendly prices to boot. No, they don't accept credit cards, but same goes for a lot of restaurants. Yes, they do have classical music on, but that's part of its charm. No, they don't have the ubiquitous Starbucks look that so many eateries sport these days, but it's charming and cozy and I can relax when sitting down for a meal, so as far as I'm concerned, the atmosphere is exactly as it should be.
This mom and pop place (the place is literally run by a couple) has the most incredible sandwiches I've ever eaten, in a restaurant or home setting. The sandwiches are divine. Bread is made on premises, as are the delicious, spoon-licking soups, and pretty much all is made from scratch and is incredibly fresh.
The veggie melt is melt in your mouth tasty, and is often my favorite, even though I am a huge carnivore. The specials featuring mouth-watering meatloaf and soup is one of the best deals in Metro Vancouver foodie landscape and cannot be beaten by any restaurant. The pasta bolognese is too incredible, and if you have a chance to snag a portion (sometimes offered on special) then do so. It beats the $20 plates hands down in terms of flavour.
6 soups are served every day from scratch, and are made right in front of your eyes. The chef is a friendly soup-nazi guy who has cooked for celebrities and notable politicians, and has an amazing ability to create simple, delicate foods. He is an amazing persona and most people I know don't only come for the foods but for a friendly chat and a place to hide away from the daily buzz. The best part is you get to try the soups before you buy the soups.
Nothing beats Soup Plus in my opinion and their exquisite, well-made sandwiches. Nothing.
