As a group of 6 we had a late lunch. The place was packed and we waited 45 minutes but it was worth it. The hostess was delightful and food excellent. Tacos and hamburgers were fabulous, bloody Mary's very different but several people raved about them. Our waitress was so nice and she took very good care of us. We... More

What a great, light way to end a full day up north, sampling Michigan foods. The gelato & sorbet is here to stay in Petoskey, unlike in Saugatuck, where it had been removed from the menu. Bummer! At least 20 varieties are available in the small gelato area of the American Spoon Food Cafe. My travel partner just finished his... More

We just went for gelato after lunch and it was amazing! I highly recumbent the MI blueberry! Apparently their food is supposed to be really good as well. There was a sign out front saying that a magazine had voted them some of the best food so I wish we would have had lunch there! Nice building, cool art on... More

This a a sunny (lots of windows) and bright place with good service and tasty and healthy lunch and breakfast choices. Prices are reasonable. Loved the kale salad and whitefish sandwhich. It is also a place you can come just to get gelato, which is very good (if a bit expensive). We were disappointed that they no longer server dinner... More

The American Spoon has style. It's small, welcoming, full of light, and beautiful. The menu does look simple but all the food has special style also. You can tell that the ingredients are carefully selected and brought to a dish with all their flavors. A combination of quality and creativity that I never found in the States. The ice cream...

American Spoon was a quaint little restaurant. We appreciated the neat clean look of the decor. The wait staff was very professional and prompt. There were many healthy choices on the menu if you are looking for that. My husband however wanted just a basic burger and fries. Not a good choice to find this entree! I choose a breakfast... More

Great little store with a lot of foodie options! We also tried many of the different gelato and sorbet's and everything was very tasty! I wasn't real impressed with the dining options in Petoskey but found this place to be a gem!

The ice cream is wonderful as are the other items. Sandwiches are also good. You can eat outside by the park or in front of the store allowing you to take in the area.

Started as a local "spoon food" outlet, American Spoon Foods is now available from top retailers across the country. Looking for a different preserve, salsa, snack cracker or glaze? American Spoon Foods is the place to go with locations in Petoskey, Charlevoix and Harbor Springs.
