“Expensive and average”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed February 10, 2013

We paid $30 for breakfast. The brioche french toast was not soaked enough which made it dry and tough. They gave me about a tablespoon of syrup and ketchup. The potatoes were a childs portion. Not worth the money.

“Bland”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed February 5, 2013

The morning of our departure from the berkshires, we wanted to go for some great farm fresh breakfast. overall the food was bland, no taste, no use of salt. We ordered the "farm fresh" with corned beef hash, it was OK. If we had no where else to venture we would try it again. It was such a cute place with the decorations, the food was a dissappointment, especially since we were the only two in the place that morning!

“An Excellent Choice for Brunch”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 27, 2013

One of two (Haven is the other choice) that I recommend for a late breakfast or brunch in Lenox. The menu is innovative and changing. The waitstaff is cute, friendly and efficient.

“Our favorite Lenox breakfast spot”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 21, 2013

Spoon is our hands-down favorite breakfast spot in the central Berkshires. Big, yummy breakfasts, and everything is super fresh and tasty. On our last visit I had a breakfast burrito, generously filled with scrambled eggs, ham, and peppers. My partner had basic bacon and eggs, but also superb, especially the just-perfect bacon. It's a friendly, casual spot. Most breakfast entrees run from $10-12, so not dirt-cheap, but really a great way to start the day.

“Terrific service, good (not great) meal.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 13, 2013 via mobile

We had an omelet and wrap. Omelet was good, everything was super fresh if a bit bland. The wrap was a bit lackluster (dry) despite a bunch of interesting ingredients. The salad dressing was very good, service was terrific, and ambience lovely - which all made up for the completely fine but not necessarily return worthy breakfast.
