    I love the petit vegan duo with a cup of their vegan soup of the day. I've also had the peacemaker sandwich which is delicious but messy and the Ethiopian vegan stew which is also good.

    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!

    I had the southwestern omelet - great. The hash browns were soft and buttery, the way I like them. My husband likes them crispy, so he was disappointed. His biscuits and gravy were a little cold.

    Husband loved the Chicago ribeye sandwich but the Asian salad was less than desired. They were accommodating and the yooper bean and bacon soup was so good I took a cup to go.

    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.

    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!

    Don't ask for oil and vinegar separately for your salad dressing. Foreign concept here apparently and they will speak audibly about you in the open kitchen.
