- Hofbrauhaus St. Louis: 123 St. Eugene Dr., Belleville, IL 62223
If you're a fan of German fare, you'll want to pay a visit to Hofbrauhaus St. Louis. It's the most authentic experience you can get without flying to Munich. Their potato soup is incredible and goes perfectly with a fresh-baked jumbo pretzel, some schnitzel, or a sausage tower! Try visiting in the evening or on a weekend so you can enjoy an authentic German beer along with your meal.
- Seven Belleville: 7 South High St., Belleville, IL 62220
Located in the beautiful and historic downtown area, Seven Belleville offers both a traditional American menu and a sushi menu. They also have an ever-changing drink menu and a selection of over 50 different craft beers. When you arrive, be sure to ask your server about their daily selection of amazing house-made soups. They rotate regularly but are always delicious. If the daily special doesn't strike your fancy, you can't go wrong with ordering a bowl of Miso Soup from their sushi menu. It's lightly flavored and delicious, making it the perfect starter before you enjoy the rest of your meal.
- China Town Restaurant: 52 Carlyle Plaza Dr., Belleville, IL 62221
One of the most popular area spots for Asian cuisine, China Town Restaurant is always a great option when you're in the mood for comfort food. They make some of the best egg drop soup in town, and their wonton soup is pretty fantastic too! The restaurant is located near many Belleville homes for sale, so plan to take a drive around after your meal.
- The Belleville Abbey: 5801 West Main St., Belleville, IL 62226
A popular local cafe serving up fresh baked goods, espresso, and a delicious cafe menu, The Belleville Abbey is the perfect stop for a quick and filling lunch. Their specialty soup changes daily, so ask your server before you order the perfect complement to one of their enormous cold or hot sandwiches.
- McAllister's Deli: 101 Frey Lane, Fairview Heights, IL 62208
If you're thinking about buying one of the great Fairview Heights homes for sale, you're sure to become a regular at McAllister's Deli. Whether you choose to order a bowl of chili or their chicken tortilla, creamy potato, or broccoli cheese soup, you won't be disappointed. The soup is pretty filling on its own, but if you're really hungry, pair it with a specialty salad or one of their "Big & Bold" sandwiches. You can also choose their "Choose 2" option, so you can enjoy a cup of soup with half a sandwich, spud, salad, or sharable. This is a great way to sample a couple of menu items without ordering too much.
