Very good food and friendly service in a laid back atmosphere. Some unique breakfast offering including some Benedict's with walleye or smoked salmon or veggies. I had a very good scramble with smoked salmon, smokes bacon, soft cheese and hash browns that were cooked extra crispy, just as requested. This place moves into second place in my best breakfast in... More

I love every opportunity to have lunch at the soup spoon, they as always have 6 unusual varieties of soup, my all time favorite is the pumpkin bisque only available in the fall. Great sandwiches and salad options, I love beef tenderloin both in the salad and the wrap.

Very good breakfast for the money. Somewhat slow service but they were very busy on a Saturday morning. If you are in Lansing, make sure you stop for breakfast or lunch. You will not be disappointed.

Excellent selection of Cocktails and Wines, delightful menu, excellent service, can't say enough good about the place. I had a Lamb Ragout Papardelle that was perfect, my guest enjoyed the Whitefish. The crostini with Goat's Cheese app was excellent, perfect crab cakes.

Expecting to be blown away. Service very friendly, at home atmosphere. Food choices very limited though. Although food was tasty, wasn't eye-opening breakfast. Menu heavy on "meats." No fruit on a breakfast menu is surprising. Compare to the menu at Golden Harvest (yes, two entirely different choices), not even close. Upgrade the menu to reflect contemporary healthier tastes.

A very nice place to extricate yourself from chain restaurants. The menu is full of distinctive entrees, flavors, and ingredients. We loved sharing the soup flight -- a nice way to taste 4 dissimilar cups of soup (choose judiciously). Our entrees were delicious and the combinations were so unusual for restaurant fare. We liked the seasonableness, localness, and organicness of... More

We always stop for lunch but the place has a nice little bar and a pretty good selection of craft beers so it would be a great spot to enjoy a drink as well. Food is always unique and tasty, staff is great and the entire experience is always enjoyable.

We had a weekday breakfast here on our first morning in Lansing. Two vegetarians and a normal human being all walked away very happy. My vegan breakfast, with a lentil patty, was delicious and almost too much food. I felt like I got a great start to my day's nutrition. My husband and daughter were both happy with their selections... More

Tried this restaurant out due to good reviews. Lunch hour on a Friday, very busy but was able to sit at the bar with just a short wait. I had the chicken salad sandwich - not your typical chick salad. No mayo. Herb seasoned chicken with chopped apples, cheddar cheese and slice tomatoes on grilled sour dough bread. Delightful! Bar...
