Cold weather, maybe even being around a few friends and co-workers who are  'under the weather' has me thinking about soup. Then, when I was checking out something on, I found out that January is National Soup Month. This got me to thinking, if I was going to go out and get myself a great bowl of soup or a bowl to bring to a sick friend, where would I go?

Here are a few suggestions courtesy of

  • Garden Cafe in Woodstock (Recommended is the Wild Rice & Vegetable Soup)
  • Bread Alone, any of their locations (All of them!)
  • Something Sweet Dessert Cafe, Middletown, (All of them)
  • Ship To Shore, Kingston (Reviewers recommend the French Onion)
  • River Station, Poughkeepsie (Many different types of chowders)
  • Ella's Bellas, Beacon
  • Main Moon in Highland, (The Hot & Sour Soup, extra hot!)
  • Margarita's Wappingers Falls, Tortilla Soup

Where do you go to get a great bowl of soup? It can be dine in or take out? Tell us!
