    Hip yet mature, healthy while decadent. Not the average downtown restaurant! Great curry or burger or pastas- they've got a unique version of most everything. We adore their brunch. SO GOOD.

    People who take their diet seriously have a friend in Spoonriver owner Brenda Langton: Vegetables, and specifically locally grown, organic vegetables, are the root of most of her dishes. Read more

    Ordered the hummus appetizer plate prior to attending a show at the Guthrie. It was excellent. They do have a small outdoor patio. Great service as well

    With an almost entirely gluten-free menu and a half vegetarian menu, Spoonriver really delivers great flavor and packs a lot of punch. Try it out! Read more

    This is by no stretch of the imagination a vegan place. There are vegan/vegetarian options but there is also plenty of tasty hoof, fin and feather on the menu.

    One of best places for post-holiday eating! Langton's food is impeccable and doesn't need to rely on lard, bacon, heavy cream, or additional sweeteners to make it soar.

    Come for lunch around 12:45 when the Guthrie crowd clears out! Their specials are always on point.

    Listen to the waiters - they really know the menu and have great suggestions! Perfect portions sizes too.

    It's ok. The place is suuuper tiny and narrow like an old diner. The lunch menu is SEVERELY limited. We were unable to try nothing that was recommended here. Also they are very stingy with the hummus.

    Great for vegetarian and vegan folks, BUT also meat selections that jive with Eco and local conscious people.

    Come here for a wonderful, fresh meal or just dessert. Pumpkin brûlée or bête noir (double choc mousse cake).

    Excellent vegetarian dishes but service is a bit lacking. They should pay more attention to their diners.

    Our group ordered burgers and they were undercooked and tasteless. I would not recommend any of the hamburgers.
