In response to prd34:
First, it's ridiculous to blame a certain restaurant for your sickness.
Foodborne illness (often called food poisoning) has an incubation period of up to several days.
It's just as likely that you got sick from an earlier meal in the day or even something you ate the day before.
Second, The Silver Spoon has always offered to make a fresh sandwich if you want it.
You could have just asked.
If you have a bad experience at a restaurant that everyone else has rated with 5 "GKs," you might want to try it again because your opinion is obviously in the minority.
I have eaten at the Silver Spoon many many times and it has always been good.
I love the salads (especially the Bacon Blue Cheese and Apple Maple Walnut), but the sandwiches and soups are great too.
Silver Spoon is also a great place for coffee and dessert (and if you buy a coffee or drink, I love the raspberry lemonade, that's 16RMB or more from 2-4pm you can get a dessert for half price!).
No, I don't work for The Silver Spoon, I've just been there so often that I know...
My favorite part is the friendly staff who know my name (cue Cheers music) and the fact that it looks like a real American cafe/bistro.
The cookies classes and parties are also fun ideas.
They have wifi, too, like many of the places near Wenlinjie.
Ok, since I feel like I have to say something negative...the prices are not the cheapest, but when it comes down to it, it's worth it!
Also, they used to have Blondies
(sort of brownies, but with white chocolate) all the time, but I haven't seen them recently.
Bring back the Blondies, Silver Spoon!!!
If you're wondering about the prices, here are some examples:
Small Salad/Soup: 12
Large Salad/Soup: 22 (add 10 if you want chicken)
Bread of the Day: 8
Small Sandwich: 22 (30 for combo with a small salad or soup)
Large Sandwich: 30 (38 for a combo)
Flavored Latte: 22
Chai: 22 (I've heard it's really good!)
