Where to Find a Great Bowl of Soup
Auckland's most slurp-worthy winter warming soups to date
1. Dear Jervois
The Herne Bay favourite is spoiling us for choice, opt for the hearty dumpling soup or try a steaming bowl of the cauliflower and white bean soup served with toasted sourdough.
234 Jervois Rd, Herne Bay
2. Scratch Bakers HQ
The purveyors of sweet and savoury baked treats have added winter soups of kumara, cauliflower and much more to their repertoire - perfect for eating in or taking away.
5 Graham St, Auckland Central
3. Goodness Gracious
If you haven’t already had the religious experience that is dipping a bagel in a classic pumpkin or leek and potato blend, you’ve been missing out. Soups on during weekdays only.
2A New North Rd, Eden Tce
4. The Raw Kitchen
When they aren’t serving up the luscious creamy broccoli, pea and basil winter warmer, you can be sure that the hot carrot, cumin and coriander soup with a side of The Midnight Baker toast will do just as well. Speaking of which ...
90 Wellesley St, Auckland Central
5. The Midnight Baker
The vegan, dairy-free and gluten-free buckwheat toast by talented baker Yeshe Dawa was made to be dunked and devoured. We’re partial to it alongside the soul-warming pumpkin and ginger soup but you can’t go wrong with any of the soups of the day.
218 Dominion Rd, Mt Eden
6. Remedy Coffee
Hot diggity damn, do these guys know how to keep the chills at bay. With an ever-changing selection of soups on offer, its chicken and corn is a firm favourite but the spicy tomato basil rendition is divine and known to sell out as soon as it’s jotted down on the blackboard.
1 Wellesley St, Auckland Central
7. Bird on a Wire
The chook and salad purveyors have got the cauldron out, much to the delight of soup lovers. The mushroom rendition pictured, which comes with a toasted baguette laden with butter and a drizzle of truffle oil, is the bomb.
40 Hurstmere Rd, Takapuna
8. Eat at The Shelter
The first of many healthy soups on offer, The Shelter's salubrious blend of pea and edamame is the picture of health.
78 Mackelvie St, Ponsonby
We get weak in the knees at the mere mention of Mary's pumpkin, sage and feta soup, served with ciabatta.
13 St Marys Rd, St Marys Bay
10. Szimpla Gastro Bar
Serving up a classic, Szimpla's moreish mussel and saffron seafood chowder is perfect for dunking the grilled slices of ciabatta it comes with and sure to warm you up faster than you can say, soup's up.
