Cup is to coffee as bowl is to

[A]. dish
[B]. soup
[C]. spoon

Answer can also be food because often we keep food in bowl and soup is also a kind of food.

I don't think that answer is too good, because bowls can be used for rice and other foods.

Bowls were made for soup and universally used as such. Plus food would be for plates.

Cup is a coffee - in the form of liquid.

Bowl is a soup - in the form of liquid.

Many certain foods can not be put in a bowl. So, food is not the correct option.
