Enjoyable

Soup Spoon trys hard to be creative and serve fresh foods. I have eaten here several times for both breakfast, lunch and dinner and enjoyed it. They offer many items with goat cheese, which I do not eat, so I am limited somewhat. Great micro brew selection.

I was visiting my friend in Lansing and he kept raving about this place all week so on my last day we finally came here for lunch. Did not disappoint! Great beer selection and amazing variety of sandwiches to sink your teeth into. I ended up going with the Smokin' B( Brisket served on naan flatbread) and I gulfed it... More

Been here for breakfast a few times and am impressed by the fresh ingredients. Never new they did dinner and gave it a try. Lots of attention and service, must make reservations for limited seating. Prices were a tad high buy food was very food. Give it a try, worth the visit.

Soup Spoon Cafe is one of those hidden gems you often read about, but rarely experience first hand. I have been a frequent visitor to this establishment from back when it was just a simple one room restaurant with simple, but delicious fare. Strange artistic oddities lined the walls, era specific soap boxes and lunch kettles as its main source... More

Soup spoon cafe is a great little restaurant that you could easily drive by if you didn't know it was there. They always have something interesting on the menu and I have yet to be disappointed.

A real gem in the heart of Lansing! Try the soup flight. Delicious! Might be a bit of a wait because this is such a popular restaurant in town, although with their expansion, the wait has eased. The clientele is a great mix of younger, edgier students, business professionals, and the well-heeled.

From the minute you walk in Soup spoon is different! The introduction to the menu together with suggested wines shows a sense of balance unusual in US restaurants. The delivery does not let down the experience! The hospitality plate had one of the nicest pieces of feta I have had outside greece, the rest of the meal continued in the... More

Smoked Salmon Benedicts and more, rich dark coffees, salads instead of potatoes, homemade jellies and jams. Staff is friendly and efficient to a fault.

Had a vegan dish that was amazing. Great flavors and something just a little bit out of the ordinary. Great presentation too! Our server provided a number of menu selections and even some house special drinks. It was a wonderful evening!
