As the name indicates, the soup at Soup Spoon is outstanding. I have had both dinner and lunch at the restaurant and have never been disappointed. The menu is creative - you can find menu items that you won't see elsewhere that are delicious but not too outre. I especially like the flank steak and, if you are visiting the... More

I'm sad that I did nothing t find this place sooner. Amazing menu and options. The food was great and so was the service. Would go again and again

I want Soup Spoon to be better -- be all it can and all I hope it will eventually be -- but it has a ways to go. Every one of my estimated 10-12 meals here amount to this: some of it works, but enough of it doesn't that it makes me question why I return. (Overly optimistic?) I won't... More

Long wait sometimes. Food is creative and good. Kind of expensive, but worth it. Nice lunch and breakfast.

...but I have never had a bad meal here. It's a nice casual place for an above-average meal. A bit pricy, but it usually has great food and solid service.

Unusual selections that won't normally be found on breakfast menus. I particularly like their pancakes and biscuits & gravy.

Wow. How unfortunate. What I had hoped for was a consistent gourmet restaurant in the Lansing scene. Made reservations for dinner. Seated immediately, So far so good. Then the wheels fell off....waited nearly 10 minutes for outlets server to take our drink order and at least 10 minutes more to get drinks. Finally had to ask if our drinks might... More

We had Soup Spoon for one of our business lunches. It was delivered and it was still warm and the bread wasn't soggy at all! Everyone kept commenting on how good their food was so I would say we all enjoyed it. Quality ingredients combined in a creative way and prepared well... delicious!
