Another wonderful breakfast at the Soup Spoon Cafe. Great variety with their breakfast menu. Never had a bad meal there.

This cafe has a huge menu with items you won't find in any regular cafe. Me and my husband tried the soup flight. You choose 4 of their 6 soups (4 of which change daily), which are served in pretty good size cups. The Butternut Squash soup was fabulous with a touch of nutmeg and curry. We split an Ava's...

Sparrow Hospital offers food cafeteria style which is convenient if visiting or needing to be with a patient. But very close by is the Soup Spoon Café, about a 5 minute walk and the food is great. They have a big variety of sandwiches and soups, a huge selection of beer and plenty of great desserts. Prices are very reasonable.

My wife and I really enjoy the great flavors. Many of their recipes are unique. All that entrees we have tried are good. This is one of our favorite restaurants in the Lansing area.

My friend and I stopped in for dinner one evening and were wonderfully surprised at the excellent food, service and atmosphere. I had to return as soon as I could- so I took my son to lunch the very next week.

We have lunch on the weekends here quite often. It is great people watching spot as well. The food and service are always outstanding and reasonably priced. The Bloody Mary's are a meal in themselves and not to be missed. You will not be disappointed.

Love that this restaurant takes reservations. We ate here on a Friday. Soup of the evening was pumpkin bisque that the waiter let us sample. It was to die for. Interesting menu with lots of unique choices, from feta coveted lamb meatballs to a Swiss chard side. The polenta was cold but the waiter offered to bring out new. For... More

We had our drinks delivered and our food orders taken. The food was delivered in good time and all our orders were correct. The food was good and the atmosphere pleasant. The lunch prices were...

I have had a few meals here. I loved the mushroom stroganoff I had once and I have never left less than satisfied. I enjoy the bar side and there is a homemade beer stein program where you leave your cup there and drink in it when you come. A fun mix of hipster, family, and professional near Sparrow Hospital.

Soup Spoon serves excellent food in a pleasant environment at reasonable prices. They have a good selection of micro-brew beers. Try the bread pudding if you like sweets. I live here, and this is a favorite of mine.
