    If you want a lunch table, get here before noon. There's usually a bit of a wait after noon.

    Calling the pumpkin bisque a soup is an understatement. It is hot, delicious, autumnal-inspired deliciousness. With whipped cream.

    Known for more than soup, the Soup Spoon Cafe has 12 Michigan micro-brews on tap, and... has a Mug Club created by local artisans from Clay Works pottery co-op!

    Good Greek food! I haven't tried their soup but the place is really nice and the food is good for the price.

    Great drink and tap list! Always changing beer but always have good craft beers! Dinner entrees are much more pricey than lunch but very good! Easy to spend over $35 a person on dinner!

    No longer a laid back, reasonably priced soup and sandwich joint. Now a high priced bistro with an extensive bar and staffed with (very nice) hipsters. Pretension with a side of vegan.

    Don't miss the Cajun Chicken Po Boy - the hot chicken, melty cheese and peppers and kick of spicy mayo are incredible.

    I'll let you in on a little secret. The Christina shrimp wrap (not on the menu) has the BEST spice medley of anything on the menu!!

    Hip breakfast spot full of bizarre paintings, Motown music and comfort food breakfast platters that are mouthwatering delicious. Matt's Morning Slider with cafe potatoes is heaven in your mouth.

    Bad lunch experience. Service very very slow. Took 45 mins to deliver an appetizer with a hair in it. Food was good once we finally got it.

    I love it here. Not only are the staff wonderful to customers, they are kind to each other! I've heard waitresses ask the kitchen if they need a drink or something from the back. Priceless!
