This little coffee shop is owned by a lovely Chinese family, Mary, the mother, is often found behind the counter. The location may not be the best, there are only a few tables lining the window and the décor is less than impressive but none of that matters the moment you taste the soup.  You can choose from hot and sour (with or without pork) and won ton soup.
