Thirty-five years ago, Old Milltown housed a popular and successful restaurant called Soup’s On, where The Cheesemonger’s Table is located now. A waitress and a cook from that shop are now opening their own soup shop, Soup’s On Café. This one’s at Five Corners, in the spot formally held by Pho Five Star.

Shoreline resident Theresa Williams (the waitress), who grew up in Edmonds, is the manager, and friend Will Carhuff (the cook), from Mountlake Terrace, is the kitchen manager. “Over the years,” says Williams, “Will has been a cook at several local restaurants, and I was married and a stay-at-home mom. Last fall, at a friend’s birthday get-together, Will and I discovered that we both were interested in opening a restaurant. And we both shared the same vision of opening another Soups On.”

Williams says she plans to stick close to the original Soup’s On menu, and no wonder – she and Carhuff retained many of the original soup recipes. They will, of course, offer their own, new creations.

Since Soup’s On sports “Café” in its title, customers can order an assortment of non-liquid options. “We will feature our own roasted beef for sandwiches and salads, and will get our white, wheat and rye sandwich rolls from the Edmonds Bakery, just like we did at the original Soup’s On,” Williams says. “We will include gluten-free sliced bread, and Will will make homemade rolls to go with the small and large bowls of soup.”

There will be desserts, too, like homemade apple crisp and crème brulee.

A combo deal will include a cup of soup, a whole sandwich and a salad, for under $10. “We will have all our menu items reasonably priced to suit repeat customers, such as businesspeople coming in on their lunch break, as well as tourists and local residents coming in with their families to enjoy our quick and friendly service,” Williams says. “We feel many people in Edmonds will remember the original Soup’s On and will want to come for a nostalgic food experience.”

Hours are 10:30am - 7:30pm Monday- Saturday and 10:30am - 3pm Sunday.
