Since I first stumbled upon The Soup Spoon's Raffles Xchange outlet, I have been dining fairly regularly at their various outlets around the island.

Soups, Stews, Purees, Broths, Bisques & Bread Bowls
The Soup Spoon offers a good range of soups in their regular menu, and also have a special rotating menu every 2 weeks. What I like about their soups is that it's heartening, chock-full of ingredients (except purees), and overall pretty healthy. Even their regular size bowl would probably satisfy big eaters, while those with small appetites might want to share.

Tip: Do ask to see / sample the soup before buying, so you know exactly what you're getting, to prevent getting stuck with a big bowl of something you don't like. Upgrade your soup to a bread bowl for a more satisfying experience.

Crusty Pot Pies
There are no pictures of this on The Soup Spoon menu, nor can you sample it, so it's easy to miss. Which would be a shame, as they have really excellent Pot Pies. Basically a bowl of soup covered with a pastry crust, it's served with coleslaw and a drink. The pastry is light and flaky, though I personally dislike the taste of their coleslaw - Too sour for me. Only made upon order.

Note: The Soup Spoon offers a few flavors of soup which are not available on the regular menu for their Pot Pies. You can however "Create Your Own" Pot Pie by selecting a soup from the regular menu.

Sandwiches & Wraps
While The Soup Spoon sandwiches are tasty, I feel that overall they are not so value for money, as the fillings are quite little in proportion to the huge Focaccia loaf they come in. Could be better if the quantity of the fillings was increased.

Their wraps however, are value for money, with more fillings than the sandwiches, and are also tasty. Both sandwiches and wraps are made only upon order, and the ingredients used are always fresh.

Service
Efficient and polite. Made upon order food always arrives within 5 minutes, with a smile. When asking to sample their over-the-counter soups, staff are patient, helpful and knowledge about the ingredients and preparation of each soup.

Tables are cleared promptly after a customer leaves, and they also seem quite enthusiastic to clear your tray the minute you sit down at the table. I've even received compliements one would normally expect to hear at fine-dining restaurants, like "Excellent Choice, Sir!"

I also notice they hire quite a few mature workers at most establishments, perhaps due to the government's campaign? Hmm....
