Mi Zoppo specializes in rich, hearty soups with bread and salads. The eight varieties of soup steaming away during our visit were full of vegetables, meat and fish--no watery broths here! The Cajun seafood chowder was thick and spicy, perfectly offset by the filling but somewhat bland small bread loaf that accompanied it. Mini-bread loaves were big sellers the evening we stopped by; the shop eventually ran out an hour before closing time. Rather than fire up the oven or serve soup without bread, a worker scampered next door to the Safeway for rolls.
For $5 you get 16 oz. of soup, a small bread loaf and a cookie. But wait, my impoverished ski bum friends, there's more! From 4pm to closing, $5.95 buys one quart of soup and two mini-bread loaves. It's a good deal and the food is a lot healthier than those cheese smothered fries from the A&W stand across the street!
