Stewps in Hales Corners is now the Soup Market.
The Soup Market, which already had two locations in the Milwaukee area opened its third store December 1, 2008. The Soup Market will offer the same soups on the same days as their original Bay View (2211 S. Kinnickinnic Ave.) location; cookies, hot & cold sandwiches, salads, quiche, etc. Everything you’d find in Bay View will be at the new store eventually, with the exception of their “pick three” soup combo.
Pictured above is the dining area at the Soup Market on Hwy 100.
The new store is located at 5301 South 108th Street in the space formerly occupied by Stewps.
The Soup Market produces 6 different soups, stews & chilis on a daily basis. With a repertoire of over 200 soups, they have plenty of varieties to please most people. Their standard three are available all the time. These include chicken noodle & chicken dumpling, both made from their own made-from-scratch chicken stock, all white meat chicken, fresh vegetables, noodles and made-from-scratch dumplings . They also do a chili that changes weekly.
The other 3 soup choices include a vegetarian selection (sometimes vegan, sometimes not), a cream soup, and a miscellaneous choice that could be an additional vegetarian soup, a chili, a stew, gumbo or broth soup.
The Soup Market also has a location inside The Milwaukee Public Market. Their Downtown location features a menu similar to their stores in Bay View and Hales Corners. They offer up to seven soups daily, as well as baked potatoes and baked sweet potatoes, cold sandwiches, and quiche.
