Super soup lineup at new Gateway Cafe in Tonawanda

Gateway Café, a family restaurant with a strong suit in soup, opened earlier this month in the City of Tonawanda.

At the restaurant, 561 Main St., salads and sandwiches are menu mainstays, like a turkey club and onion rings ($8.99). But the soup lineup seems destined to draw cold-weather customers.

Loaded potato, pepper steak, French onion, chicken pot pie and corn chowder (all $5.49) are part of the latest lineup. All the soups are homemade, said Michelle Fisher, who owns the place with Matthew Deck.

"I went all out at first," with more soup selections, Fisher said, "but every day I do plan on having at least five."

The 46-seat restaurant was last office space.

Fisher formerly operated a restaurant in Lakeland, Fla. "I thought it would be nice to have something that I had there here," she said of opening her restaurant in the City of Tonawanda. "I enjoy it."

Hours: 10 a.m.-4 p.m. Monday-Saturday. Closed Sunday. Phone: 260-1826.
