Posted at 4:27 PM, Apr 01, 2017

DENVER – It sure feels like the first day of fall in Denver with temperatures in the mid-50s and lows expected to dip as night falls. 

If you’re looking to warm-up but don’t want to stay at home, check out these seven options that offer some of the best soups in town. 

1.) Chop Shop Casual Urban Eatery – 4990 E. Colfax Ave.

This casual stop features house-prepared meats, salads, sandwiches and also serves beer and wine as complementary drinks. But you’re here for the soup.

You can’t go wrong with Chop Shop’s 72-hour Slow-Cooked Onion Bliss with grilled croutons and toasted Gruyère cheese.

Yelp rating: 4.5 stars

2.) Potager – 1109 Ogden Street

A great farm-to-table restaurant, Potager isn’t kidding when it comes to season soup.

Try their Red Wagon Farm Winter Squash soup, filled with curried crème and picked apples.

Yelp rating: 4 stars 

3.) ChoLon Bistro – 1555 Blake Street

Deviating from the traditional soup bowl, ChoLon’s soup dumplings are sure to stay with you after the first taste.

Each dumpling is filled with Gruyère cheese, sweet onions and a rich broth.

Yelp rating: 4 stars

4.) Pho-natic – 229 East Colfax Avenue 

You can never go wrong with pho on a cold, gloomy day and Pho-natic offers more than its fare share of pho and noodle soups options.

We recommend the chicken pho or the spicy beef noodle soup if you’re looking for a little spice to keep you warm.  

Yelp rating: 4 stars

5.) Fruition Restaurant – 1313 East 6th Avenue 

If you need a little (or gigante!) pick me up, try the Gigante Bean Soup. In every taste you’ll experience the best spicy fennel sausage, cannellini bean relish and crispy kale.

Yelp rating: 4.5 stars

6.) The Kitchen Denver – 1530 16th Street 

Sometimes all it takes to beat the gloominess out of life is a bowl of tomato soup, and the Kitchen Denver has that at the ready.

Served with olive oil at just the right price, you won’t leave disappointed from this restaurant.

Yelp rating: 4 stars

7.) Uncle – 2215 West 32nd Avenue

If you want to experience what everyone in the Lower Highlands (LoHi) has been bragging about for more than three years now, you have to wait a bit as the minimalist space is compact and there is a line -- it's that good.

The spicy chicken with the sesame broth, scallion bean sprouts and soft egg is a favorite for anyone who comes for noodles here.
