I read the reviews before coming here and was eager to visit. The meal was nothing special, poached eggs way undercooked, hash browns greasy. The menu does not list any beverages so a customer will be surprised by the bill. Friendly service.

You have to wait for a while to get a table, but it's worth the wait. They have the best chicken stir-fry I've found in the Lansing area since Bennigan's left.

Had lunch recently. Great food, but service extremely slow. We had a toddler, and she was happy as a clam. They gave us a large table and a booster. I’ve always enjoyed my meals here, just not great if you are in a rush!More

I have never done take out from the Soup Spoon. I could not find any take out info on the web site. I suggest you call them (since you would have to call to get take out anyway).
