It’s been way to cold in the Tampa Bay area, and when it’s cold outside there’s nothing that’ll warm you up like a delicious hot bowl of soup. Whether you’re sick or just want to warm up, a nice bowl of soup is the perfect way to comfort anyone. Not everyone has delicious soup! We narrowed down the best places in town that have the best soup in Tampa Bay.

Best Soup Restaurants in Tampa Bay:

There’s plenty of places in Tampa where you can find delicious homemade soup but these options aren’t everywhere. One classic spot located in South Tampa is called Woody’s Famous Salads that makes fresh soups every single day. Another one of our favorite restaurants that’s been around for 60 years is called Wright’s Gourmet Deli. They make tremendous pride in their food and only use the freshest ingredients. Plus they have new soups every day so make sure you call and check what they’re offering that day before going.

Why Eating Soup Is Healthy For You:

There’s a lot of health benefits to eating soup that can help you recover when you’re sick. Soups in general, especially broths can provide essential hydration and nutrients your body needs especially when ill. Serving some warm soup aid in a sore throat and help with congestion to loosen mucus. You might have heard that chicken soup, in particular, can help boost your the immune system when it’s been diminished. The soups that have vegetables and proteins give off extra vitamins and antioxidants that support your immune response. These broth-like soups are easy to digest which can be gentle on your stomach while providing necessary nutrients. Here’s a list of Tampa Bay restaurants that serve the best soups! And best of all, most of them have a delivery service so you don’t have to leave your home.
