I found this restaurant when I searched for places with vegan options while in town on business. The food was very good (had the Ethiopian Stew), and my colleague had plenty of meat options to choose from. Definitely recommend.

Four of us that went for lunch. We all did different soups and enjoyed tasting each one. My favorite was a tomato bisque. I also did a grilled cheese that was phenomenal. This is my favorite lunch spot downtown.

I attended a politician's fundraiser at the Soup Spoon this evening and it was extremely well put together. The ambience was great, the hors d'oeuvres were fresh and tasty, everything was clean and neat and very presentable.
