Chicken pot pie was mushy, do not get it no matter the sales pitch. There was also too much sauce on the chicken curry sandwich and nothing tasted fresh. We were pretty disappointed.

Really great food for the money. Very fresh. I didn't expect it when I looked at the prices. Three of us all had the pick 3 and we were very pleased.

The food was great for a lunch-hour visit. It gets very busy around noon, so if you have a flexible schedule I would try to go at 11:30 or order online. The pot pies, sandwiches, and salad have all been very good with prompt service.

Thank you for pointing out our online ordering - order for dine in/take out/delivery! We thank you for trying many of our lunch offerings and making us a go-to lunch location. If you get up early, we also serve breakfast. Thanks!

This restaurant is cafeteria style but with creative food options which are brought to your table. Most people eating here were locals who gave me advice on ordering. The half sandwich (Rambo) was delicious. Good bread as well as fillings. The half and half combo...More

We actually sought out Cafe Moxo based on Trip Advisor reviews. When we walked in, I was leery of the simplistic design of the place, but that was short-lived. The guy behind the counter greeted us with such an up-beat personality. Who could worry about...More
