La Bonne Soupe Cafe Restaurant Review: La Bonne Soupe is an intimate French café tucked away on a nondescript downtown street. But it remains a popular lunchtime staple for the office worker crowd with its consistent, high-quality soups, sandwiches and salads. Popular dishes include the duck liver pâté, Brie, peach and fig sandwich, and the salmon chowder and cream of mushroom soup. The place is a gourmet alternative to the nearby sub shops and burrito joints. Come early --- the line snakes down the sidewalk at peak hours.
