Love soup? Head on over to the Backstreet Bistro, a local favorite, where they've been serving up house-made soup since 1994. Their aim: to serve fresh seasonal soups made from scratch. No base used here, just good stock simmered for hours. Diners get to choose from eight options each day including favorites like Thai Curried Squash, Sweet Pepper Bisque and Butternut Squash. The signature soup: thick and creamy Hungarian Mushroom. Fridays bring favorites from two very different traditions: the Jewish Friday night staple, matzo ball soup and the meatless Friday superstar, New England clam chowder. There is always at least one cream, meat, vegan, and gluten-free option on the menu daily. In 2013, Backstreet Bistro was featured on the Food Network's hit show, Diners, Drive-ins and Dives. The episode highlighted their Smoked Turkey Wild Rice soup and pumpkin pie. Desserts are made fresh daily. Bring cash; credit cards aren't accepted.

- Lunch: "While soup is the star here, the menu also features sandwiches in two categories: Bistro and New York Deli Style. Try the hot corned beef, hot pastrami or Reuben. You can order either a half or whole depending on your appetite. The menu also has a salad section."
- Best for Lunch Because: Soup is popular. Think of Seinfeld's Soup Nazi. Backstreet Bistro excels at it. Service is fast and prices are reasonable..
