    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!

    Great soups...Seafood Chowder, thick & hearty; French Onion, rich flavor w/o being salty. Four additional soups rotate thru the menu. Perfect place 4 brkfast or lunch meetings! Twitter: @soupspooncafe

    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!

    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.

    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.

    David Crampton · April 2, 2013
  • Nick A.

    Love the rotating soups; Cream of Roasted Red Pepper and the Mushroom Tarragon are two of my favorites! Also, bottomless fresh locally roasted Rudy Baggs coffee? Sign me up!!

    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!

    A little pricey, trending toward an upscale vibe. Try the soup flight - the Curried Tenderloin soup is one of the best soups I have ever had.

    Love this place! The Dark and Stormy is excellent, with a strong ginger kick. The atmosphere is warm, the menu is interesting, and the bread pudding is delightful.

    Danielle Parish · March 25, 2013

    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.

    Tony Sabo · September 1, 2013

    Everything I ordered was delicious ! Can't wait to try other things on the menu. Highly recommend Goat Cheese Points for an appetizer ! 😍

    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.

    Stopped here for brunch on the 4th of July. Ordered the Smoky Scramble and it was delicious. I was so glad we found this place.

    our server tonight was really bad but the manager made up for it! left us feeling just as important as the 12 top our server ignored us for!

    I usually get soup and a sandwich but decided to try the Chicken Marsala. It was outstanding. Probably my new favorite item on the menu.

    Trevor Barnes · November 4, 2010
  • Emily W.

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

    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'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!!

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

    Lansing NOISE · September 22, 2010
  • Nikki G.

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

    Nikki Greer · August 4, 2013

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

    Natalie Scott · January 15, 2010
  • Nick D.

    Wow...Get reservations because you will wait at least 30 minutes on a THURSDAY after work...really?!

    The Baja and Irish scrambles were both tasty and are best paired with mimosas.

    Over priced good food and no kid's menu! $10 for a nana bread pizza for my child and it only had cheese and sauce!

    Seafood chowder is the best. The bread pudding is better than Grandma's (shh, don't tell! )

    Becky Brown · September 15, 2014

    If you're going on a weekend night, make a reservation!
