This one wins the awards for freshest ingredients. The soup and cheeses are non-traditional, but quite tasty. The vegetables used are grown at their own farm a couple of miles away and picked daily, and the bread used is baked the same day. You can taste the freshness, and the soup is served with incredible toast that is baked that day as well. Ask for a tour of the kitchen and you will see their bakery. The biggest problem is that the soup is too small; likely because it is included with your meal. The trick here is to ask for more.
Edit (12/28/2007): Added picture, and increased rating/ranking. Bern’s uses 5 fresh cheese on their soup. They are: Geitost, Parmesan, Asiago, Fontina, and Goat.
