Spoons bistro & bakery has received a TripAdvisor® Certificate of Excellence award. The international accolade, which honors hospitality excellence, is awarded only to establishments that consistently achieve outstanding traveler reviews on TripAdvisor. Certificate of Excellence award winners are located all over the world and represent the upper echelon of businesses listed on the TripAdvisor website.

When selecting Certificate of Excellence winners, TripAdvisor uses a proprietary algorithm that takes into account reviews ratings to determine the honorees. Businesses must maintain an overall TripAdvisor bubble rating of at least four out of five. TripAdvisor also considers volume and recency of reviews. Additional criteria include a business’ tenure and popularity ranking on the site.

“Winning the TripAdvisor Certificate of Excellence is a great source of pride for our entire team at Spoons bistro & bakery and we’d like to thank all of our guests who have taken the time to complete a review on TripAdvisor,” said Melissa Miller, General Manager of Spoons bistro & bakery. “There is no greater seal of approval than being recognized by our customers. With the TripAdvisor Certificate of Excellence based on customer reviews, the award is both a remarkable vote of confidence in Spoons and a tribute to the Grand Junction community.”

“TripAdvisor is pleased to honor exceptional hospitality businesses for consistent excellence,” said Marc Charron, President of TripAdvisor for Business. “The Certificate of Excellence award gives top performing establishments around the world the recognition they deserve, based on feedback from those who matter most – their customers. From Australia to Zimbabwe, we want to applaud exceptional hospitality businesses for offering TripAdvisor travellers a great customer experience.”
