Our first visit to Soup Spoon, an unusual and high quality local restaurant in Lansing. The menu is extensive and quite diverse. Prices are moderate. Portions are large, indeed too large for this couple. But everything we ordered was nicely prepared and presented. Worth a return visit.

We've been here twice and the food was simply great! The seafood chowder was delicious, and during our first visit we've got the daily special, which was a $25 salmon, which was wonderful Today I tried the pork Schnitzel and my wife got the fresh salmon, both were great, maybe the fresh salmon was not as great as the special...

The atmosphere is a little kitchy with diner like tables and/or a little edgy with it's diner-like tables and/or edgy but the service is always excellent. The wait staff seems sincerely eager to help you decide about the food. I love the breakfasts, lunches and dinners here. My daughter often orders the Peacemaker lentil burger or the small plate with... More

I just love this place! from the surroundings, the cleanliness, organization, and of course the great food will bring me back every time. I took some guest to the Soup Spoon and they were as delighted - it is such a great addition to Downtown Lansing - did I mention the great food?

The tomato basil soup was the best. So good. The atmosphere was warm and inviting. The staff was great, attentive, and I always had a full glass to drink. Highly recommend.

We were passers through so have no loyalty. We just picked this stop because of trip advisor. Positives:Warm host and easy seating. Interesting menu options. Negatives: We couldn't read the hand written menus. Waitress was very unhelpful when we asked for best dishes. Because of this I stuck with what I know and got the BLT. It was about the... More
