What You'll Get
Faucets, like high-school sweethearts, run hot and cold because of their raging hormones. Reconcile two temperatures with today's Groupon: for $5, you get $10 worth of hot and cold comfort food at one of Soups & Scoops Café's two locations on South Peters Road and Western Avenue. The café is closed Sunday and Monday.
Soups & Scoops Café services the whims of polar and equatorial explorers alike with a worthy assemblage of frosty and steamy comfort foods, from homemade ice creams and sorbets to soups, sandwiches, and salads. Voted Knoxville's Best Ice Cream Shop by CityVoters in 2010, Soups & Scoops plies patrons with more than 40 homemade ice creams and sorbets, available by the scoop, pint, quart, and bucket. From key lime sherbet ($5.25 for a pint) to vanilla malt ball ($45 for a six-quart bucket), each flavor is lovingly hand-wrought on-site and eagerly awaits a bevy of delectable toppings to deliver more sugar, crunch, and x-ray vision with every bite.
Diners desperately seeking pre-cone fare can try pairing a cup of homemade soup ($3.65) with a self-designed half sandwich ($2.70), or make it a drink-laden combo for $6.35. Specialty sammies such as grilled PB&J ($2.50) and K-town cheesesteak ($7.49) stand head and shoulders above shorter fare, such as Tim Conway's Dorf Goes to Le Cordon Bleu, while large-scoop salads topped with tuna ($4.50) illustrate that love is never having to choose between land and sea.
