Soup has long been a favorite meal, especially on a cool day. Some even believe soups hold medicinal properties. Good on its own and the ideal accompaniment to a sandwich or salad, the list goes on. One thing’s for sure though: soup is great for when you want something hot and hearty to eat. From clam chowder at cafes in Bar Harbor to tomato soup at restaurants in Portland, these Maine eateries serve up a mean bowl of soup. Here are our favorites. 

Paddy Murphy’s, Bangor, ME

The soup at Paddy Murphy’s has an international flair. Choose from Jesse’s potato soup, French onion soup, butternut squash soup and Hungarian mushroom soup. And this is just the start of the list. Enjoy many of their soups in a cup or bowl—or even a bread bowl—for an extra hearty meal.

Forage, Lewiston and Portland, ME

Forage is a wood-fired bakery and café that is known in both the Lewiston and Portland areas for their homemade soup. Changing daily, it varies with the season. Call ahead to see if the day’s offerings are to your liking. Then come in and dine in the rustic café or take your soup home to warm up later.

At Chick-A-Dee of Lewiston, you’ll find delicious homemade soups on the menu every day. Hearty haddock chowder, clam chowder, lobster stew, and their soup of the day round out their soup menu.

Hot Suppa, Portland, ME

Even though just two kinds of soup grace the menu at Hot Suppa, customers swear it’s some of the best they’ve ever eaten.
