First-timers can expect to be pleasantly surprised when they step into the converted retro-era garage. The soup counter allows for a choice between a number of innovative homemade selections with varied toppings. Because sampling before making a final selection is encouraged, the signature clam chowder is a must-try. Contributing to the funky yet casual décor are the restaurant's menus, which are sandwiched between old license plates. Weather permitting, sit on the deck to enjoy downtown sights.
