Top soups to try in Canberra this winter

Sophia Bouzas and Helena Game

While everyone loves the classic pumpkin soup, lets face it – sometimes it just doesn’t cut it.

We’ve done the hard work for you and sourced some of the most delicious and inventive soups for you to enjoy in Canberra this winter. Because who doesn’t long for a soul soothing soup on those icy five degree days?


If French onion soup is your thing, why not try more than one across Canberra? Buvette in the Hotel Realm offers a traditional version, served with gruyere cheese croutons. Happy eating!

18 National Circuit, Barton | Open various hours between 6.30am-10.30pm seven days a week | 6163 1818





With spots in both the city and Aranda, head to Two Before Ten to try soups such as their recent special, vegetable and red lentil soup served with gruyere, confit garlic croutons and oven dried tomato, (and a slice of sourdough of course!)

68 Bandjalong Crescent Aranda or AMP Building, 1 Hobart Place, Civic | Monday-Friday 7am-4pm, Saturday-Sunday 8am-2pm (Aranda) and Monday-Sunday 8am-4pm (city)

Pho Phu Quoc Vietnamese

Feel like something traditional, hearty and soul soothing? Then look no further than everybody’s favourite Vietnamese restaurant, Pho Phu Quoc. Choose from classic staples of pho or opt for something a little more hearty such as the Beef, rice and egg noodle soup.

Sophia Bouzas

Sophia is a local Canberra girl half way through her Public Relations/Law degree. But when she’s not studying, paralegal-ing or interning for the lovely team at HerCanberra, you will probably find her enjoying Canberra’s selection of cafes, watching cheesy romantic comedies with a tea in hand or planning her next adventure.

Helena Game

Helena is a wannabe journalist studying Communications and Journalism at the University of Canberra. Canberra born and bred, she is hopelessly in love with writing, stories and travel. She recently wrote her way around Japan for a creative writing study tour, and spent another two weeks in the Middle East on a journalism exchange, both of which have left her with a proper case of the post-travel blues. While she plots her next adventure, Helena is hoping to gain as much industry experience as humanly possible, and somehow finish her degree at the same time. More about the Author
