Good food, friendly service on a lovely porch

We stopped for lunch after reading the well earned, excellent reviews. We ate on the porch with a view of Green Bay. My friend had a delicious BLT, maple flavored bacon on thickly sliced whole grain bread. I had the portabella with melted cheese...very good! My friend also had a piece of... read more

This is the first time I have eaten at the Serving Spoon. It is in the midst of the strip of stores and restaurants across from the marina, pier and beach in Menominee, Mi. The service was friendly and professional. The menu had a nice variety of healthy and/or fresh options. I enjoyed my veggie sauté on a focaccia roll.... More

The serving Spoon Cafe is such a relaxing way to start your day. When the weather is nice we always sit out on their porch that has six or eight tables. It overlooks the marina where sailboats and yachts are moored. It is a beautiful view. The food is great and the coffee wonderful. They have many flavors of coffees,... More

We found this diner on a Trip Advisor search as were driving back home to Wisconsin from a trip to the U.P. What a great find! We were happy to drive by Perkins to find this local gem. The staff was very friendly and the food was great. We had the breakfast burrito and the boss's breakfast. Both were terrific.... More

This was my third visit to the Serving Spoon and my husbands first. We visited on a lazy Sunday morning at about 11:30 am. We sat on the veranda to enjoy the beautiful weather. The Serving Spoon is very comparable to any place you might find in Door County or any other tourist area. We ordered an egg sandwich special... More

We love The Spoon for breakfast, but have also had great lunches here, too. Soups, salads, unique sandwich combinations and breakfasts. Owner Tammy makes you feel welcome but doesn't hover. Waitress Diane is warm and efficient and I don't think she's ever in a bad mood! Great barista bar to go with homemade baked goodies. Right across from the marina... More

We stopped at the serving spoon to break up a long trip. I ordered the mushroom wrap. It was very taste. We also ordered the veggie pita which was also good. The table service was great and the view of the harbor was nice as well. A great value.

The owner of this place works her butt off. This place has some of the best brunch you can find in Menominee, it's really great coming home from Chicago to visit. Whenever leave I miss my double espressos from Starbucks, but who needs Starbucks when you have this cozy place!

The Serving Spoon is a charming little restaurant that you'll never find if you stay on the highway, as most do driving through Menominee. It's in downtown (only a few minutes off of 41 and 35) near the marina, an area that clearly has seen better days, but don't let that put you off. It's in an old, nicely decorated... More
