Pumpkin Soup at St. Francis
Daily

Pumpkin soup is back at uptown eatery St. Francis. Creamy, rich, and served with pomegranate seeds, crunchy croutons, and crème fraîche, the soup is the great way to start a meal but also filling enough to be its own light entree. Pumpkin soup costs $4 for a cup, and $8 for a bowl, and will be around for a limited time on St. Francis' fall menu. For additional information about St. Francis, visit the restaurant's website or call 602-200-8111.
