10 soup-er places to find the perfect winter soup

Posted on

Who doesn’t long for a soul-soothing soup on those icy winter days? (Or even the wet, windy autumn ones we’ve been enduring?)

From a classic pumpkin to a drool-worthy combination of sausage and vegetables, finding the perfect soup can sometimes be a bit of a challenge. So to make your life easier, we’ve found 10 soup-er (sorry) places that are home to hearty and healthy winter soups.

While a lot of these cafés and restaurants are kind enough to make these beautiful broths when the weather gets chilly, that doesn’t mean they will be available every day. So, keep an eye out on their social media, pop in every so often, and remember, if there’s no soup, there’s sure to be something else on the menu to warm you up.

The Usual (Gungahlin)

Did someone say potato and truffle soup? The Usual in Gungahlin is anything but usual with their delicious weekly specials.

The Knox Made in Watson (Watson)

A local hub for locals to relax and enjoy good food, the staff at the Knox are passionate about local produce. Luckily that means when the weather gets cold, soups can often be found on their specials board (think chicken and corn broth served with house-made garlic baguette and Thai pumpkin with coconut cream and chilli oil!). Keep an eye on their social media to see if there’s a soup-tactular comeback for our favourite winter meal.

A new Chinese fusion restaurant located in Dickson, No9 Palace is the perfect place to go if you’re craving a soup packed with flavor. Their ‘Buddha jumps over the wall’ soup (so named because when the dish was being prepared the smell was so good Buddhist monks jumped over the wall to see what it was), is cooked for two days with abalone, prawns, sea cucumber, king oyster mushrooms, quail eggs, and shiitake mushrooms to extract the flavor of the ingredients. Yum.

13 Woolley Street, Dickson / no9palace.com.au / Open Tuesday to Sunday, 12 pm – 2:30 pm and 5 pm – 9 pm. Closed Monday.

Sweet Bones Bakery and Café (City)

Perfect for those cold mornings, Sweet Bones Bakery and Cafe have some soup-er fun weekly specials—including a vegetable sausage soup. Get in quick, you never know when they’re going to sell out.
