Soup Spoon started as a scrappy breakfast and lunch joint that focused on well-made food and quality ingredients.
It has since tripled in size and added dinner options and a full bar. But the commitment to quality remains.
The Café Benny is a solid symbol of the café’s early years. It’s simple — two perfectly poached eggs with housemade Canadian bacon on English muffins and drizzled with hollandaise sauce — but it’s a delight. If you want to jazz up your Benny, there are other options, like a Yooper Benny with fresh walleye or the “San Diego,” with avocado and ancho pepper hollandaise. But the beautiful simplicity of the Café Benny is always a brilliant way to start your day.
