It's Soup Month! Check out these Montco restaurants for the best homemade soups.

It’s National Soup Month and the polar vortex is coming (or snow, or wintry mix, or something!), just in time to chill down the end of January. But never fear—soup is here!

Here are just a few of the many wonderful Montgomery County restaurants that offer delicious, warm, and comforting homemade soups for you to pick up and enjoy, plus you’ll be supporting your community restaurants.

The Eagles Nest Deli (located at 500 Bridge Street in Mont Clare, 610-935-8773) is a neighborhood staple. This lunch crowd knows where it’s at with their daily hoagies (Order the Mont Clare), salads, soups like New England Clam Chowder and chili. Stop in and fuel up.

Java & Friends Italian Wedding Soup.

Java & Friends (located at 254 Main Street in East Greenville, 267-644-8287) has amazing coffee, tea, and sandwiches, and does a lot for the community too—like donating to local front-line workers this past year during the pandemic—so ordering from here will make your day grand.

Try their homemade soup of the day, which includes their famous Split Pea Soup or Italian Wedding Soup, and more.

J.J. Ratigan Brewing Company (located at 227 East High Street in Pottstown, 484-524-8391) scratch cooking plus great craft beer makes this place a Pottstown favorite.

Don’t miss their house-made brisket chili—created to wake you up! While you’re there, grab a burger, salad, or chicken and waffles to go along with some craft beer.

Collegeville Diner (located at 290 E Main Street in Collegeville, 610-409-9600) features pretty much anything you’d want to eat, but the focus is on their hot soups like French Onion Soup, Matzo Ball Soup, or Homemade Chili with Cheese. Pair your soup with a wrap, grilled cheese, or a steak sandwich and you’ll leave with a full belly.

Java’s Brewin’ Chili and Cornbread.

Java’s Brewin’ (located at 296 West Ridge Pike, Ste 100, in Royersford, 610-489-3468).

They feature local vegetables for their soups, like Harvest Veggie, Creamy Chicken & Wild Rice, Butternut Squash, or their Bison & Lamb Chili with cornbread.

The Hatboro Dish (located at 102 S York Road in Hatboro, 215-347-0036) offers breakfast and brunch, with sandwiches, skillets, breakfast, and soup by the pint! Order takeout along with a South of the Border Skillet or a South Philly Steak skillet and you’ll be oh so happy.

Bucktown Grille Loaded Baked Potato Soup.

Bucktown Grille (located near 2090 Pottstown Pike in Pottstown, at the Corner of Rt. 100 & Cadmus Road, 610-469-2757) gets creative with all their made from scratch and cooked-to-order meals, like Taco Soup on Taco Tuesday!

Try their Wonton Soup or their Split Pea Soup (either vegetarian or with ham), New England Clam Chowder, Shrimp Bisque, Crab Bisque, Broccoli Cheddar, and my personal favorite, Loaded Baked Potato soup. The Grille is the restaurant on wheels, as a take-out restaurant, pizza shop and ice cream parlor all-in-one.
