It’s said that necessity is the mother of invention, and that rings true at The Stew Pot Kitchen on Main Street in Downtown Akron. Owner Scott Malensek had limited funds to pursue his dream, but instead leveraged his resources into a unique system. Instead of spending a small fortune on a huge kitchen to prepare his food, he pioneered an idea of using soup kettles to cook and serve his delicious soups, stews and slow-cooked sandwiches.
When you walk into The Stew Pot Kitchen, at 23 S. Main St., you notice the alluring and delightful aroma of the various soup kettles that line the wall behind the counter. If variety is the spice of life, than this place is one spicy location that has something for everyone’s tastes.
The dining room is earthy with wood-carved tables and a sturdy slate floor. Wooden shelves encompass the room with local crafts, homemade jellies/jams, photos, various sauces and condiments and a collection of soup bowls. Having a bowl of soup or stew at The Stew Pot Kitchen is like stepping from the farm into your grandmother’s kitchen and having a helping of nourishment and love. Stop in and treat yourself to some great food at The Stew Pot Kitchen.
