It is my favorite restaurant in the Lansing area. I have never been disappointed. If you go there stop in next door, Fabiano's, and have a piece of chocolate!

First time here. I work at a hotel so I send people here all the time. So I figured I better eat here myself. The location is perfect for almost anything you are doing Downtown. Not far from anything. The food was really good. I got an omelette. Real eggs which is expected. But a lot of places don't use... More

Took a chance based on other reviews and it was well worth the trip. Very diverse and interesting menu. Get there before the lunch rush, could be a wait. Very friendly wait staff. Everything we ordered was of high quality and tasty.

Soup Spoon Café was an excellent location for lunch. With a fantastic variety of food, and a very inviting atmosphere, this place has a lot of return potential! I ended up going here late lunch time on a Thursday afternoon, and had to wait for a seat (approx. 15 minutes). There are a couple of adjacent parking lots, but expect... More

Real cooking with a touch of class. Hostess and waitress were friendly and helpful. The soups were very, very good. A slight wait as it was over the lunch hour. Maybe a reservation next time? Will definitely visit again.

Friendly service. Cute atmosphere. Everything looked clean. Nice big windows let in the morning light. Food decent. Got the Very Veggie and the Crabby Egg for breakfast. Both good although the Crabby Egg was a bit dry... not enough sauce.

Nice little place. Unassuming, lets the good and service do the talking. Had the pumpkin bisque -- wow! Sweetish, with a peppery, spicy finish. Good wine list. Crab cakes were meaty and generous. Service was right on...prompt, but not pushy. Go!!

The restaurant had a weird layout divided over three storefront areas. Immediately greeted and seated by a friendly server, who was very knowledgeable about the menu. Coworker had the Swordfish special and liked the fish. He did not like the kale side dish. I had the filet, which was tender and cooked perfectly. Did not like the red sauce drizzle... More

My brother, as a resident of Lansing and recuperating in the hospital, insisted I go to the Soup Spoon Cafe. He raved about their beef stroganoff. I had no reservation so had to sit and wait a good while in lieu of many empty tables. Host and staff were friendly and courteous. I looked at menu and didn't find beef... More
