For the same reason you can see yourself in a mirror but not in a pillow. The spoon usually has a smooth, reflective surface, while even metallic cloth would very rarely have sufficient smoothness and reflectivity for you to see your reflection.

Why do you see an upside down reflection in the back of the spoon?

You'd actually see your upside-down reflection in the bowl of a spoon (the part where the food goes); any reflection you see on the opposite side will always be upright. The inside of a spoon acts as a concave mirror, which have the interesting property of creating an inverted image when the object being reflected is located outside the focal point. If you hold the spoon as close to your face as you can, you'd see your reflection upright.

Do you see things upside down?

Yes, we do in fact see things upside down until our brain turns it back around for us. You can prove this fact when you look at your self on the outside of a spoon, you will see yourself upside down! In fact our eyes see things the right way up but the image appears upside down in the retina, our brain works so fast that it can interpret the image quickly. +++ The spoon is no test of how sight works, but demonstrates a property of convex mirrors!
