My husband and I visited on a Saturday for lunch. They have a fantastic, innovative sandwich menu, including grilled cheese of the day - how can you beat that? We had a hard time choosing. Ultimately ordered the roast beef with cheddar on a Zingerman's bun and Kentucky Brown. Both were excellent! It's not cheap, but the servings are very... More

A specialty dinner of five courses all from New Zealand and Australia paired with wines from those countries. The courses were unique and excellent. The service for about 60 was efficient and timed perfectly.

Sandwiches for lunch here are wonderful! Purchase the larger size and take a portion of it home with you. Their lunch menu is out of this world!! And desserts.......they have many good ones! Everything on sandwiches are made to order and very fresh. I highly recommend The Wooden Spoon.

I enjoy the food. Specials and menu items are very good. Service is good too. My only issue with this place is how loud it is when busy. I sit outside or in the first room by the door so I can have a conversation. We do carryout as well.
