“Always great”
Reviewed 8 June 2014

I have been buying from Justin since he started the stand on the family home. Now you can buy online at American Spoon to get your artisanal fruit preserves, condiments and gifts handcrafted in Petoskey. Tried the authentic Gelato today.
Those who claim they have absolutely the best cappuccino in Emmet Co. Michigan might be right. The Gelato is amazing. Service is friendly. Atmosphere both indoor and outdoor seating on the park make for the perfect environment. I highly recommend the soy cappuccino. It was so good, American Spoon Cafe is as good as it gets in these parts.

Reviewed 22 April 2014

We hit American Spoon at least twice when we are on vacation just for the gelatto. Hands down, best gelatto in Michigan.

Went there with girlfriends and enjoyed a tasting of apps. It was a nice atmosphere (sat at the bar) and the staff was fun and friendly.

“Lucky Find!”
Reviewed 7 December 2013 via mobile

We were passing through the very quaint town of Petoskey and stopped for lunch at American Spoon. We sat in the outdoor dining area, which overlooked the pretty park. We had an amazing lunch – very upscale for a small little town, or any town for that matter! We highly recommend it! Be aware that they close for the season in early fall!

“Up North sophistication”
Reviewed 4 December 2013 via mobile

Several visits have persuaded us this is the best restaurant in the area. Tucked away facing the park, with a separate entrance from the ice cream shop, this low-key chic setting delivers a carefully curated and seasonally changing variety of creative dishes. Fresh local foods (don't miss the artisan cheese selection), friendly knowledgeable service, expert preparation, good wines = dining happiness.
