I had a reservation for 12 people from across the state meeting for my Mom's 93rd Birthday celebration. Everyone in my party was delighted with the food, the cost, that we could hear each other talk, the atmosphere and especially our server, Cassandra.

The food is delicious and they have generous portions. I highly recommend this place ! The service was outstanding even though the place was packed .

I have heard that if there are a lot of items on the menu that it may be a warning about the quality of food. This was so true here. I was disappointed in the quality of the food. The food tasted like a corner...coney island quality food. The Cobb salad had thin sliced sandwich meat on it. The Chowder was salty with lots of diced potatoes. The Voodoo pasta had lots of cinnamon in the sauce. All our food was a disappointment. I was expecting a higher quality of food from the sound of the menu items and other reviews. Don't be fooled! Only redeeming factor from our experience was the price.More

First breakfast visit for two of our group of four. Breakfast is our favorite meal out and we were not disappointed. Place was consistently busy and we were there from 9:15am until 12:15 pm so we experienced both breakfast & lunch crowds. Eggs Your Way...was tasty. Server was reasonably attentive given how many tables she was taking care of. Menu is quite impressive and we will surely be back!More

Fancy food and excellent service without a super fancy vibe or exorbitant prices. The name is a misnomer as this is restaurant offers SO much more than soup. The dinners are exquisite! I loved lamb meatballs and vegan ravioli. There are multiple cuisines offered and...whether Ethiopian, German, or Greek, they are all done well. The chefs are true artists.More

We ate here for lunch based on trip advisor and it was amazing! The soups were so good and flavorful! We had a Turkey & roast beef sandwich and the amount of meat on it was so much that we could only eat half. We...ordered the bread pudding dessert and it honestly was the best we’d ever had!More

The selection is good. Soup and sandwich were good but way too salty. Have been here before and did not have the same experience, so maybe a salt container fell into the soup this time? We will try it again.

What a great place. Food was incredible!!! The host was very accommodating when we asked to be moved. A very large group was in the room that we were first seated. They were having a great time but we were celebrating my son’s graduation and...wanted a quieter spot. The wait for our food was worth it!!!!! Everyone enjoyed their choices and everything was high quality. Compliments to the chef and staff. We would go back in a heartbeat. Graduation weekend is very busy at MSU and I am so happy that we discovered this place. Highly recommended!!More

My husband and I. went for lunch. I had the soup flight (4 selections) and it was phenomenal. I had the seafood chowder, Hungarian mushroom, onion and Italian chicken. They were all amazing. It also came with French bread. My husband had the cajun chicken...panini. It was also amazing. Great atmosphere. Also a good selection of draft beers. Prices were very reasonable also.More

What a great spot to have breakfast/bruch/lunch! The menu is full of wonderful choices. I had the Irish Scramble and it was delicious. My friends tried the eggs benedict, french toast and breakfast burrito. All were very tasty. Great service.

This is our first time here and we loved it. It’s a busy place so we had a short wait. We were really just looking for a small lunch. I had the Pesto Scramble and a small salad while my wife had an Asian Sesame...Salad. Delicious! The service was friendly and efficient.More

When traveling on business, one often settles for basic nutritional needs, not expecting pleasant, positive experiences. Soup Spoon Cafe delivered both. Interesting soup selection, great sandwich, a superb dessert, and some interesting conversation with other guests and management as well. Soup Spoon is a busy...place, and we waited 15-20 minutes before being seated, but we were served very quickly after ordering - they put out an amazing amount of food quickly, with the hot stuff hot, and the cold stuff cold. Why is this feat so difficult for many restaurants? Soup Spoon Cafe was not even on our radar before traveling through western Lansing, but it will be on our short list of places to visit again on a return visit.More

There is a handsome gentleman (bald, wears nice suit, I did not catch his name) that usually works the pick-up/ host stand. He is amazing, very kind/ caring, very informative and clear. We need more of him in the world! I took the time to...make this review just for him as he was THEE best employee I’ve come across at any establishment!

Everything about Soup Spoon is reminiscent of a fine restaurant in San Francisco during the 60’s. Sit down and order confident that whatever you choose will be made with skill and care. No risk eating.
