10 Places to Warm the Soul with Takeout Soup Across Canada

The holiday season has wound to a close, but winter’s blustery chill is still in the air. What better way to warm up this January than by celebrating National Soup Month with a hot & steamy bowl of comfort!

Soups have been around for ages (literally). Historical evidence of soup has been found that is believed to date back all the way to 20,000 BC, and cultures around the world have put their own spin on soup since. From tortilla soup to ramen to clam chowder, there are so many ways to enjoy this delicious dish.

Warm your soul this soup month by ordering from one of these 10 restaurants offering soup for takeout from coast to coast:

Burgoo Bistro has been offering Vancouverites food for comfort since 2001 and has since expanded to 4 locations across the city. Their seasonal rotation of delicious soups accompany other comfort food staples like sandwiches, stews, and savoury pies. Craving a cozy night in? Might we suggest the After School Special, butter grilled baguette loaded with melty cheese served alongside Straight Up Tomato Soup.
