We often visit the Wooden Spoon for dinner and we are never disappointed. We recently visited for lunch and it may have been even better! Great place to go for something different! Try the Mushroom & Brie soup!

It's so hard to find great "farm to table" restaurants that truly embrace the philosophy. The folks at the Wooden Spoon in Escondido not only embrace the philosophy, they could help write the book. All their ingredients are fresh, organic, and delicious. Although they may...More
