This dining recommendation was emailed by Dana:
"I came across a little soup shop (similar to Panera). The name is called Zoups. They have around 12 soups daily and they have a board with a df next to the soup if it is dairy free. The soup I had was really good, but I thought a bit pricey. I couldn't find out anything about their other products if they were dairy free or not. It is nice though to have this option if I am out that way."
Their soups can actually be pre-ordered online (for pick-up) by location, and they include the same special diet notations for the day's soups online (V – vegetarian, DF – dairy-free, etc.), so you can check out your options before making the trip!
The sandwiches and some of the other menu items have the same types of notations, but you may need to customize (say, no cheese) to make some of them dairy-free.
Locations: They currently have locations in MI, PA, and OH; see the website below for detailed locations, phone numbers, and hours.
