Enjoyable meal - eclectic menu - nice wine and beer list. Good service, "witty" waiter - my son ask, tongue in check, "should I order the soup," and the waiter replied, "dude, it's called the Soup Spoon . . . ." Reasonably priced.

The seasonal pumpkin bisque is absolutely amazing....it is topped with a dollop of whipped cream if you like. It is so packed w flavor that whatever you get to eat afterwards might seem bland. I followed my bisque with eggs over medium with some of...More

Really tasty sandwiches and soup. Nice atmosphere. I had pretty crappy service (which I would gladly discuss with a manager; not going to slam anyone on trip advisor) but the restaurant as a whole was wonderful. Will be back. Just hope to get a different...More

Every time my brother comes home we head to the Soup Spoon Cafe. Excellent, interesting menu. Wine list and beer selection is top notch. You may have to wait a bit for a table but well worth it. Always an interesting mix of patrons.

I’ve only had breakfast and lunch here. The food here is solidly “good.” It’s not great or interesting but it’s far better than almost all other Lansing establishments. The menu offers classic and slightly funky options. Everything I’ve tried has been good (i.e., sandwiches, soup,...More

Loved the fresh, homemade soup and salads. Caesar salad was amazing. Pass on the French dip sandwich. Great atmosphere and good service.

I have never done take out from the Soup Spoon. I could not find any take out info on the web site. I suggest you call them (since you would have to call to get take out anyway).
