It’s Bonne, La Bonne

French onion soup; duck confit sandwich, La Bonne Soupe Cafe

Around this time each year, my feet get permanently cold and my stomach craves sustenance from warm, nutrient-rich liquids. To alleviate both problems, I ordered a cup of the classic french onion soup ($4) at La Bonne Soupe Cafe (920 8th Street). Topped with a slice of french bread and a gooey grating of Swiss and provolone, the soup paired perfectly with a sandwich ($8) filled with mixed greens, melting brie and duck confit (think duck carnitas). Arriving at around 11:30 a.m. on a Tuesday, I beat the usual line for a lunch that provided as much comfort as a second pair of socks. 920 8th Street.
