Photo courtesy of http://www.crocsoup.com/We are always looking for restaurants that serve something a bit healthier and fresher. We found the perfect restaurant in Golden, CO - Croc Soup Co! It is a soup, sandwich, and salad place. According to their website:
"We're consumed with making soup. It's a passion that stems from an Italian heritage and a love for food and flavors from around the world.
In 2010, Daro Hyder quit his job as a big five consulting firm executive to pursue his dream of opening a gourmet soup shop. Using ingenuity in the kitchen, favorite family recipes, and recipes derived from chats with famous restaurant owners across the country, he launched a full alphabet of soups at Croc Soup Company in Golden, Colorado."
Their soups are made fresh daily, and they have vegan, dairy free, and gluten free choices in their soups. You can even taste them before deciding which to order.
We enjoyed their food so much, we went twice in the three days we were in Golden. The first trip, just Hubby and I went. He had a large Croc Soup Gumbo (spicy), and I had a small Broccoli Gruyere soup with a half Italian Croc sandwich. The next trip, Hubby and Son both had a large Potato Cheese soup; and I had a small Chicken Rice soup with a half Italian Salad. Everything was delicious ... even the Chicken Rice soup! So often, chicken soup in restaurants has little to no flavor. Not so at Croc Soup Co ... lots of wonderful seasoning.
