Simply delicious - please be open more! - Edit

I was blown away by this awesome little hole-in-the-wall place when I stumbled across it for lunch one Saturday afternoon. Really delicious food (they do have more than soup, even though they call themselves a soup bar), and the personnel are super friendly and warmhearted, to boot. I was delighted to find a vegan place in Escondido, at last!

My one request to the owners, if you happen to be reading this: please be open more! Since discovering you just a few weeks ago, I've wanted to go back four times. Three of those times were after 3pm (usually between 5:00 and 6:00, for dinner), and one was on a Sunday. Your food is terrific, and I would love to help keep you in business; I just can't get down there during your limited operating hours most of the time. Please do consider expanding yours hours of operation so that we can help to keep you afloat!

Pros: Awesome food, Friendly and helpful service, Inland vegan option (finally!)

Cons: Only open for lunch Tues - Sat

Recharged and ready to - Edit

After a long flight from the east coast to the west coast, my husband and I used the Happy Cow app to find a restaurant after leaving the airport. We ordered the root veggie bisque,
Pervano bean soup and the tomato and pesto toast. It all was EXCELLENT! And the meal was served super fast. We felt recharged immediately with quality plant-based food that was delicious.

Pros: Healthy, tasty, fast

Cons: Closes at 3 so don't plan a dinner there.

best vegan restaurant in San Diego - Edit

I love the soup place!! It is the only vegan restaurant that I've ever been to where the food is organic, no fillers or mock meat and it can fill you up for 10 bucks. It's a serious dream come true. And it's totally perfect for vegans to bring non vegan pals! Who doesn't like soup or salad?! It is also a perfect introduction for people who don't know about veganism or new vegans because all of the food here is versions of everyone's favorites from chickpea noodle to chili. It's seriously one of the best presentations of veganism.

Pros: rice crispie treats - get them

Yass plant-based option in Escondido! - Edit

I am beyond happy there is a vegan option FINALLY in Escondido!!!! In Escondido when I have gone out and mentioned the words plant based or vegan I get a look as if I am an alien. You drive 30 minutes out to the coast you get an unlimited amount of plant based options. Thank you Guys for breaking the mold! I have been here two days in a row with my dog and the food is sensational and the staff is awesome...they even took care of my pup with a fresh bowl
Of water. I was in such shock I saw the word vegan in Escondido I almost cried out of tears of happiness. Thank you guys I am a huge supporter and will tell all my friends and family about this wonderful new place :)

Your New Favorite Place! - Edit

Found this place on a whim, I believe the outside of the building says "Vegan Soup" - I'm already in love. I had the Thai veggie bowl and it did not disappoint. Delicious locally grown (whatever's in season) coastal delights brought right into the heart of Escondido. What a treat!

Simply Delicious! - Edit

Coming from downtown San Diego, my wife and I invited some vegan friends from the Fallbrook area to meet us in between at California Homemades for lunch.

Shanti, the owner, took great care of us, including letting us sample the three scrumptious soups she had steaming in the kitchen. It was hard to choose which one to order!

The menu is clean and simple and delicious, not to mention wholesome. And our friends are very happy to finally have a 100% vegan eatery so close to home!

Finally more vegan options in Escondido! - Edit

Actually found this place by accident while driving through Escondido! Almost wrecked the car when I saw Vegan Soup Bar on the sign!!! Yes, finally in Escondido we have another Vegan option! Had to try the food so we went there today. Incredibly delicious food! It's a bit limited menu, but it's only open from 10 - 3 Tue thru Saturday, so it's perfect for lunch. The food is almost all organic, and there are homemade soups, salad dressings, and drinks. I had the creamy potato soup, a salad with creamy garlic dressing, and toast with avocado! Absolutely the best. All vegan All awesome! The staff was very friendly and really made us feel right at home! I'm totally doing a happy dance right now! :-)

Pros: All Vegan, Mainly Organic ingredients, Delicious!

Cons: Limited Menu, Only open for lunch

Community Gem! Great little discovery! - Edit

I am so excited to have a nice little vegan place in Escondido! The food was extremely fresh and flavorful. I had a wonderful salad with sunflower seeds and their minestrone soup was to die for. I highly recommend this great little Escondido gem!
