Who We Are ?

Jesse and Jessica Calvert, driven by their shared faith and love for good food, made a significant move from the Mississippi Gulf Coast to Maine. Their journey was not only motivated by their passion for serving others, but also by their desire to create a place where they could share their love for southern food in a warm and welcoming atmosphere. Thus, they opened Southern Spoon restaurant, a delightful establishment that combines comforting southern cuisine with a sense of community.

At Southern Spoon, Jesse and Jessica infuse every dish with the flavors and traditions of the South, showcasing their culinary expertise and love for creating delicious food. From heavenly shrimp n’ grits to mouthwatering chicken and sausage jambalaya, each meal takes guests on a culinary journey down south.
