We don’t know about you, but our favorite things about wintertime all boil down to one thing: food. Not just food, but hot food. There’s nothing like coming in from shoveling snow all morning, or walking back from work in negative 10-degree weather, and sitting down with a freshly prepared bowl of soup. Now conjuring images of our mom’s homemade chicken noodle and minestrone soups. Mmmmm.
When you have a family to feed and winter stress to deal with, making delicious homemade soups from scratch seems more like a pipe dream than a perceived reality—it can be more trouble than it’s worth. With all the hard work you do, you deserve to let someone else do the tough parts every once in a while. Here are our top picks for the next time you’re looking for a delicious soup restaurant in Philadelphia. Stay warm!
High Street on Market
High Street on Market offers delicious offerings for dine-in or takeout for every meal of the day. Their dedication to staying local is unparalleled, as most of their foods—and many of their wines—are sourced from local farms. Their family dining option offers a unique dining experience that’s as convenient as it is a bang for your buck.

The warmth of sharing a meal with friends or family is one of the best things about cold winter nights, especially when involving delicious soups.
