This place got hyped up as a great brunch spot, so we went for a friends birthday. The decor is cute- lots of mason jars; however, the wait was long and the service poor. We were still finishing our coffee and the hostess came over to say there were "lots of hungry people waiting for our table." The food was just average. Keep looking for the next best brunch spot, it isn't here.

My wife and I sat down at 10:45am for brunch and ordered right away, an omelette and the skillet eggs. After 40 minutes, they brought her the wrong entree, and nothing for me. They took that away, and twenty minutes later, after the entire restaurant had turned over, tables seated after us were having their plates cleared, and still we had not gotten our food, we got up and walked out. Our waitress didn't care, and my only regrets are that I paid for the coffee and didn't make a scene about it. I had no idea how much this would ruin our Sunday. I have read other reviews on this place, and this happens pretty frequently.

While the savory goods are definitely tasty (try the roasted turkey breast on cranberry walnut bread), it's the homemade baked goods, desserts, and jams (try the apple butter and lemon curd) that really shine and delight. The sticky buns and bread pudding are among the best I've had in the city. The menu of sweets varies daily and fresh goods debut fresh from the kitchen throughout the day - all of which makes this place all the more exciting for a dessert aficionado.

I just wish spoon was closer to my work, and I would have it for lunch every day. I particularly love their lunch box pies, and tuscan white bean salad.

Gotta say of all the places that claim to be "homemade" this is one of the very few that actually lives up to the hype. Pretty much everything I have had here has been amazing. The sticky buns, pies and brownies are all exceptional, and the lunch sandwiches are top notch but cost substantially less than I expected. Love to eat in as the space is cozy and not overcrowded--love that they didn't just cram in as many seats as possible.

I discovered Spoon and its sit down cafe next door, TBSP, a year ago. I find myself having lunch at least three times a week. The food is fresh, vibrant, and full of flavor. I am particularly obsessed with their lunchbox pies - chicken and cheese in buttery flakey puff pastry. When i do not feel like cooking dinner i pick up their gourmet frozen items. My favorite is the chicken potpie. This is a must try!
