This place is a rarity in finding "homey" food that is not too salty or overly sweet. As Soul food can be great if the cooks would use a lighter touch with the salt and sugar.
Great food, good people keep up the tradition. And, thank you for giving us a place to get vegetables.
Ange and Crew of the Spoon !!!Awesome Breakfast..
Yes the wait time can be long...BUT ITS WORTH IT.
Fish and Grits, like mama makes it......
Very poor customer service – I have been a patron of the Serving Spoon for years and have enjoyed the food so I decided to share my experience with visiting family this past March 22nd. After finding parking which was not easy, I was greeted by a woman around 10:45am who noticed that I had a thermo mug in hand and she immediately admonished me that I could not come in with that. I told her I was going to purchase more coffee when I finished what I had and she said that I still could not come in. I told her that this was never required before and no one ever said I could not in the past. At this point I escorted my family who was visiting from Texas to another resultant that I frequent and they were glad to serve me, mug and all. I was very angry and disturbed not only as a patron, but because the woman could not see past her policy to use this as an opportunity to invite visiting people in and allow me to enter and still let me know about the policy for future visits. You may have lost a customer and I will be writing a review to your site. Gee
This place has the best food on earth. Very amazing – This place has the best food on earth and the breakfast and lunch is absolutely amazing. Thank God for serving spoon
No Complaints, Just Compliments! – Serving Spoon Reigns with the Crown of Divine Breakfast Spot! Dining aside singer, Raphael Saadiq, alone maintains my interest. But the food is what keeps me coming back. Boo, order Angie's Special #2!!!
Yuck! Hair in my food! – This was the first time I dined at the restaurant. When I told the hostess about the hair in my food she said she would take care of it. Then the server brought us our check. I was still being charged for the food. I asked the server about the hair in my food. She then said she was going to tell the manager. When the manager made it to the table she looked at me as if I was a criminal. She said "I already talked to my cooks and they said it was not theirs. My cooks are Mexican!" To sum it all up I had to pay for my food and with no apology. This tells me a great deal of a restaurant. If they will let that happen.... who knows what other nasty disgusting things they are doing in their kitchen?
Best Breakfast Place! – The Serving Spoon has the best breakfast ever! The waffles and the french toast is so amazing! You have to try this place!
Thank you for taking the time out to give your input, it is very important to us. Hope to see you again soon!
Stayin true to the roots – I work right down the street from this spot, and i can honestly say that it has become a fav! The crew here was first introduced to the Serving Spoon by the homie, and since then it is the new lunch spot. Amazing breakfast.. and well everything else. I definitely recommend this place.
We appreciate your feedback it helps us to make our customers enjoy their experience. Thank you for taking the time out to comment. Thank you for getting the word out.
Very Disappointed – I am a southern girl, raised in Alabama and Georgia. So when I read about this place on citysearch, I immediately called up my friend and we met there for breakfast that morning. Looking at the menu, we were both very excited about what was to come. After much deliberation, we chose the catfish filet with pancakes, salmon croquettes with potatoes, and a side of bacon. While waiting for our food, I must agree with previous posts, this place felt like home. The ambience was really chill and the music was nice. However, the food left much to be desired. The catfish was overbreaded with an awful after taste. The salmon croquettes tasted like bread filling. And the potatoes tasted like they were dipped in grease. The only thing that we actually enjoyed was the pancakes and the thick cut bacon.
Their motto states that there ain't no better breakfast. But I'm sorry to say, that's a lie.
Dear Southern girl, we apologize for your disappointing experience. That is definitely not what we want our customers to encounter when they come to our establishment. Hopefully you took the time to let a manager or a server know about your displeasure.
Honestly, in our 26 years of having a successfull business it is EXTREMELY rare that we get comments such as this, however, we understand peoples tastes vary.
We would like for you and your friend to come in and introduce yourselves and we will make sure you are accommodated.
Have a great day!
Examples: Pancakes, Customer service that will never be forgotten. thanks – This past weekend my family and I was there and we love it. My family came down from Houston and the moment we walked in smiles love and family was there greeting us at the door. We are from the south and we get ready to eat we don't like for people to have an attitude. And i must say you all had just the opposite. If anyone ever ask me were should they go to grab a bite to eat. Please trust me you all are number one in my book. Nikki and the lil dark haired lady that waited on us both times we came in they are as God placed them to be. So I as a USMC family member must tell you all thank you for serving your town.When my husband come home from Iraq,yes we will be back! God Bless Serving Spoon.
