Another pastry puff entry.  If there was cheese in this soup, I couldn’t find it.

Bland broth, good cheese.  The cheese was way too stuck to the bread.

Not much good to say about this one.  The looks of the place made us very optimistic, but the soup certainly did disappoint.

Mozzarella cheese and salty broth makes this soup a typical Greek diner offering…which is fine when you are looking for something like that.

I was able to remove the superfluous onion rings from the top of this soup, and enjoy a great soup.  A combination of gruyere and mozzarella sits atop an excellent broth.

Located in the famous Pike Place Market, this restaurant was an Internet recommendation.  Happily, there was lots of good cheese (Gruyere).  But the broth was unusual.  The menu notes that they use “Hidalgo Cream Sherry”.  I don’t know what that is, but the broth was certainly more creamy than meaty.
