This was our second visit to Cafe Luna (last on 3 years ago) and I was somewhat surprised to find they had expanded. In any case, we love the funkieness of this place. Excellent food and lots of innovative items to choose from.

Hi Joel, I am very sorry you had this experience. Yes, the rain put a damper on everything this Sunday and the larger crowd than normal made it harder to control. The rain takes out about 20 outside tables and then there is no where...More
