// We Are Lifting Our Roots //
It was our pleasure cooking for you this past five years, at our little location on East Valley Parkway, in the hidden town of Escondido. Thank you to our small devoted team and to everyone who has supported The Wooden Spoon restaurant and our mission.  We hope that you have felt and tasted the love we put into the craft, with the food you have eaten at The Wooden Spoon. As our lease is up, and many other varied reasons, it is time for us to say good bye to this location; we hope we have left you inspired. Although we are leaving our location, The Wooden Spoon owned by husband and wife, Chef Jesse & Catherine, is still in business. Stay connected and be the first to know what The Wooden Spoon is cooking up next.  Sign up for our newsletter at and follow our Instagram & Facebook feeds at woodenspoonsd.
We look forward to cooking for you!
