One of my favorite places to eat in Bloomington over the past eight weeks has been Darn Good Soup. Perhaps its the Slav in me, but I can eat soup pretty much any time, anywhere. Thus, any restaurant with 10-12 different soups available daily gets an A in my book.
Previously I've tried DGS's Chicken Tortilla and Broccoli Cheddar, and while today I was in the mood for something less thick, I still ordered the Twice Baked Potato. The chef (Nels Boerner, who is such a nice guy!) told me it had a little pepper jack cheese in it, which gave it a delightful kick, even though I'm not usually a huge fan of spice. I appreciated the chunks of bacon and potato surprising me every so often as well. I love that DGS gives everyone a free piece of delicious bread; multigrain goodness to soak up my cheesy-potatoey perfection.
What I love most about Darn Good Soup is that you get a full, delicious meal for so cheap! Soup, bread, and my drink only cost me $6.69! Cheaper than homemade soup impostors like Panera or Cosi, not to mention a million times more tasty.

I even walked in!

Other soups we sampled included Beef Bourgignon and
Butternut Squash. All perfecto!
