On a business trip to Lansing. This place was between the conference center and Sparrow Hospital. The reviews were good, and I have to agree. Interesting menu, somewhat of a fusion place with locally sourced food. The "spoonipino" was outstanding, if you like spicy seafood over pasta. Girlfriend had the steak wrapped in prosciutto. Very nice.

Allan's Smoky Scramble ~ Two eggs with house smoked salmon, applewood smoked bacon, green onion, and tomatoes, drizzled with a smoky ancho pepper hollandaise. It was amazing. First time here... I will be back. Art work on the wall was cool. Service was first class. One small flaw...a sweet young girl constantly sweeping the floors was driving me insane; I... More

Hello Anna, Thank you so much for the wonderful review! I understand your uneasiness with the sweeping. With the amount of traffic we get in we do need to sweep up the floors when we get a chance otherwise they will be very dirty by the time we get our lunch rush, and then again with our dinner crowd. We... More

Nice atmosphere. We ordered a bbq brisket naan pizza. We took off 80% of the brisket because it was actual fat cut up on pizza. If that wasnt the case it would have been just ok. I had a pastrami sandwich and When i pulled the bun off, i could see all the bun on both halves. There wasnt even... More

The food is great, and I love the farm to table options. The dinner prices were quite high, but the food was good.

This great restaurant is SO much more than it's name implies. You aren't going to find typical "cafe" food here, and you need to try more than just their soup! Their food is unique and always delicious, from appetizers, to (yes) soup, to main courses, to dessert. Then there are the "adult" beverages. They make their own peppercorn simple syrup... More

Love this place. Good food, great wine and beer list. Gets crowded on weekends, make reservations. Favorite dish is the chickpea stew.

My family had lunch here and I enjoyed the soup sampler, which included 4 different kinds of soup in 4 cups, each of a different style. Food is of good quality but a little bit salty, slices of bread came with each dish. There are other varieties besides soup and sandwiches. The decoration is pretty simple for causal dinning. Service... More

You would think by the name all they have is soup. But no...Lots of choices. My wife and I enjoyed a date night there. Their desserts are good too

I ate dinner here to celebrate my 21st birthday. I was very satisfied with the service and the food. The manager even gave me a free drink! The prices are doable for the quality of the food. The food was absolutely delicious and I plan on going back here again. I definitely recommend visiting Soup Spoon Cafe!

Had very low expectations after reading reviews that said Dominos pizza was the top rated food in East Lansing. We loved this place! Complex creations, all fresh and local sourced, beyond delicious. LA beach bistros would kill for their menu and chef. Wow. Just wow. If you're dining in the area you must try this fabulous find!
