Having built an empire of highly successful eateries, first here in Philly and then beyond, Michael Solomonov and Steve Cook of CookNSolo Restaurants, looked for a way to give back.

They found it in Rooster Soup Company, located in a diminutive diner space in Center City.

Vinyl bar stools and Formica tables, tiled flooring and Art Deco lighting fixtures hearken back to an era when dining out didn’t need to be fancy.

Open for lunch and early dinner (until 8 p.m.), the charmingly low-key lower level enclave serves a trim menu of familiar, home-style dishes, donating 100 percent of its profits to the Broad Street Ministry Hospitality Collaborative, which feeds and provides important services to vulnerable people in Philadelphia.

Diners can enjoy meatball sandwiches and whiskey sours with the added benefit of knowing that they’re helping others.
