We Are NOT JUST SOUP!
It would be easy to describe The Stone Soup Company as a simple soup and sandwich place in an urban environment, but that would be one of the biggest understatements in Tampa because The Stone Soup Company is NOT Just Soup! The Stone Soup Company, founded in 2009 by proprietor and visionary, Chef Ilya Goldberg, began as just a place to buy a cup of soup. But after a week in business, the restaurant's menu quickly evolved into sandwiches, salads, gourmet dinner selections, late-night appetizers, Beer Selections, and other desserts.
So why the name “The Stone Soup Company”? The Stone Soup Company’s soup is not made with stones and there is a lot more than just soup on our menu. Similar to an old children’s story about a woman who makes an elaborate stew out of stone and feeds an entire village with it, The Stone Soup Company does not use a stone, but it does focus on the same concept - simplicity and feeding the community. The Stone Soup Company is known for taking a few fresh ingredients and whipping them into a wide selection offering an elaborate menu to satisfy all of your dining needs: hearty soups, appetizers, sandwiches, salads, and desserts.
The Stone Soup Company's: Buy 1, Give 1 Campaign Supports Local Charities
Many restaurants throw away 25-30% of their ingredients, SSC vowed to not allow this to happen and make a soup out of unused products and provide it to those in need. A soup is donated to HOPE Catholic Charities Homeless Shelter. For every cup of soup sold in the restaurant, a cup of soup is donated at the end of the week.
