This is a fun place! The food is excellent and innovative. The service is friendly, helpful and prompt. I have been there twice now for lunch and both experiences were good. Will continue to patronize this restaurant.

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).
