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

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

    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!

    We ordered the filet and the Voodoo Pasta. The combination was perfect! I haven't had food this good in months! My hats off to the cooks.

    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!

    The seafood chowder is awesome.

    Melik Brown · May 13, 2013

    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.

    David Crampton · April 2, 2013
  • Emma M.

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

    Emily White · December 9, 2011
  • David W.

    Save room for dessert and get the bread pudding. The caramel on it is better than crack

    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.

    Erik Rowley · January 22, 2014
  • Adam W.

    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.

    Adam Wright · December 12, 2013

    The French dip was disappointing, the soprano was amazing.

    "Can I get a soup with my sandwich as a substitute?" "No, we don't do that."
