With the winter weather we’ve been experiencing on the Main Line lately, a bowl of soup is the perfect way to warm up.

The Main Line saw its first snowfall of the year this week, and the blustery wind is only driving temperatures down. It’s the perfect weather for a bowl of soup from one of these Western suburb eateries!

In addition to a classic French onion and a rotating daily selection of scratch-made soups, Ron’s serves up a chicken chili bowl that is not quite spicy with just the right amount of sweetness. Tortilla chips come on the side for dipping, and the salty crunch is irresistible.

Slow Hand will keep you warm all winter long with short rib chili, served with crème fraiche, white bread and black beans. Also on the menu is the squash soup, a vegan option with cremini mushrooms, croutons, pumpkin seeds and spiced mousse.

Split Rail Tavern

You’ll find a unique curried butternut squash soup here, but we recommend trying the duck noodle soup for an elevated twist on the classic chicken. Ginger noodles, seared duck breast, confit duck leg, spiced duck broth, mushrooms, scallion and sesame make this dish a cozy option to beat the cold.
