Amazing food, amazing service and great atmosphere. Best thing here was there were no tvs in dining area part. There could've been one in the bar area, but we didn't eat in there. They had some nice classical music playing but just loud enough to...More

Wow, thank you so much! We do not even have tvs in the bar area:) We do make all of our deli meats in house and we sell them retail through the restaurant. I hope you find yourself in Lansing again soon!

Bustling atmosphere at lunch. Excellent choices of soups and special dishes daily. I had a pumpkin bisque that was thick and creamy. Service is excellent.

Our second mediocre experience in a row, so will probably not return. Took out-of-state relatives there to dinner. We were placed in an alcove at the back of the restaurant where service staff passed by frequently and sound reverberated. We expected more from our server,...More

Our party of 34 agreed to a limited menu and had 5 awesome choices. The salad and soup selections were great as well. The only thing better than the food was the hospitality and the service!! Stop by this place if you're in the hood!

Recently I was in East Lansing for about 48 hours. The restaurent scene is a bit grim if you're looking for local and fresh. However, Soup Spoon was a true delight. The menu is varied with accommodations made for preferences. Wine list includes good local...More

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).
