San Francisco Soup Company
  2512 Bancroft Way/Telegraph Ave.  Located at the University’s main intersection, this small venue has only a few seats but is well equipped to prepare orders for take-out.  With the expansive lawns of the University just across this street, take-out is a good option.  Though the owners were inspired by the famous Seinfeld “Soup Nazi” episode, the friendly service actually encountered is anything but.  The made-from-scratch soups are, of course, the way to go, but sandwiches and salads are also available.  Among the tasty soup selections on the regularly changing menu is a hearty matzo ball that is put together in several steps to assure the noodles and matzo balls don’t become mush right away (note, however, that as good as this soup is, great matzo balls are found only in NYC).  The tasty West African Peanut and minced Turkey Chili with a minimum of beans are also noteworthy.
