The first time I had dinner at the Soup Spoon, shortly after it had opened, I ordered the lamb shank and it was excellent. Second time we took an out of town visitor there, and I again ordered the lamb shank and it was average - a noticeable step down from before. The third time the lamb shank was so... More

This is an amazing place for good food and service. My server today was Danielle and she was very attentive. The fresh roasted coffee is superb.

Danielle is amazing, we are so lucky to have her as part of our team. We are so happy that you enjoyed your experience with us, and the coffee! We get our beans from a local roaster, Rudy Baggs, you can also purchase them at Foods For Living. The owner is in most Friday mornings from about 9:00 am -... More

Soup Spoon is one of the best new restaurants in Mid-Michigan. The menu changes every quarter and incorporates local products in every meal. Flavor and portions are noteworthy. The menu is limited with concentration on producing a fine meal. One can't go wrong at the Soup Spoon for lunch or dinner. I assume the breakfast offerings just as memorable.

This place is always busy - reservations are not an option. The variety of selections is good, too. Not a good place for small children, though; due to the high turnover. They have a bar area for takeout.

Hello, Thank you so much for the great review, we do get pretty busy in here! We do take reservations for breakfast and dinner, but between 11:45 am and 2:30 pm we can not due to the large walk in traffic we get. I hope this helps! More

I've been coming to The Soup Spoon since they were a third this size and only open for lunch. The food is always top notch, the service beyond excellent. The addition of craft beers, an more expansive menu and a fine selection of wines is a very big step. A step that they have managed well and have gone above... More

Inventive sandwich and soup recipes with fresh healthy ingredients that change frequently depending on what is currently in season/available. Can be quite busy - you may have to wait for a seat.

The menu is wide in range, service is excellent--there when you need assistance, not hovering--food perfect. Always have soup but also love their sandwiches, wraps and salads. The soup flight is always a satisfying culinary adventure. New friends always want to come back to lunch with me again at the Soup Spoon Cafe!

They upcharge martinis by a buck if you ask for them on the rocks. I have asked around and no other establishment I checked does this.

Hello, I am so sorry for not responding earlier! Thank you so much for making us aware of this. We went through our computer and found where the problem was, you should not have been charged an additional $1 for having your martini on the rocks. We did not catch this in the past because there are several ways of... More

Small building so it fills up quickly but the food is worth the wait if you have the time. The service was excellent.
