The food and service was just dandy! The jam for the toast was awesome! I like really strong espresso and the espresso I had wasn't all the strong. The highlight was the awesome rolly chairs. I'll see if I can upload a video the share and you'll get it.

Very friendly servers despite the fact we arrived close to closing time. Had stuffed French toast and husband ate one of the eggs Benedict dishes. Took a thick shake to go.

Very Much enjoyed Moon's Cafe. We were down town for the day and wanted to try something different. The wait staff was very nice and the food was excellent.

My husband and I both have difficult allergies, and Moon's is totally obliging, providing gluten free toast and willingly switching recipes to match my dairy allergy.

Stopped here for a quick & relaxing bite to eat. The Chicken Wrap & Sweet Potato French Fries & homemade shake was absolutely delicious! One of my favorite fast food diners now!

We ate lunch there. It is downtown so parking can be an adventure. Wife had a club sandwich and we made 2 meals out of one sandwich. I had the chili. Glad i ordered the cup and not the bowl. Saved room for an old fashion Milk Shake.

Ate breakfast here with family & friends. Nothing special, standard breakfast fare. Biscuits & gravy was served lukewarm, corned beef hash was odd with huge chunks of corned beef..not to our liking. Eggs Benedict & bacon & egg breakfast were enjoyed by two in our party. Prices normal for downtown area.

Thank Tracy K
