We went for breakfast and the food was pretty good. I had the biscuits and gravy I do recommend this as the asiago biscuits and sage sausage gravy was yummy. The only thing keeping the rating down was the 50 minute wait for the food...More

The food here is by far the best in Lansing but the tables are so close together that it is really hard to carry on a conversation. Since it opened the clientele has changed to a much younger crowd who are not up on their...More

The Soup Spoon Cafe is what we call a local "secret." Even though it's right on the main drag (Michigan Avenue) that connects the state Capitol with East Lansing and MSU, I'm surprised more locals don't know about it. This little restaurant was so popular...More

I'm never disappointed when I eat here. They have a wide range of offerings for breakfast, lunch, and dinner. The vegetarians in my family are always pleased as well.

This is a jumping place -- people were still coming in for lunch at 2 o'clock. Our wait for a table (at about 12:30) was 20 minutes, but it was worth it. Service was efficient and friendly, and there were interesting things on the menu....More

I had lunch there today. It was my first time visiting. It was bustling busy, but we weren't hurried by the waitstaff. The seafood chowder was delicious. It reminded me of a cross between the old Bill Knapp's clam chowder and their au gratin potatoes...and...More

I have never done take out from the Soup Spoon. I could not find any take out info on the web site. I suggest you call them (since you would have to call to get take out anyway).
