Here are five of our favorites:

As golden-crusted, dense and oozy as an onion soup ought to be, this creature comfort is one of several hot soups offered at the Jupiter bistro. $6.95.

Chili At Dune Dog Café, Jupiter

You come here for the range of killer dogs, but then you try the chili and it becomes a go-to favorite. Add the works (cheese, onions, scallions) for a quarter. A cup is $3.75, bowl $4.75. A cup, however, will suffice – you’ll need to leave room for a Chicago dog.
