Very tiny place without much room to sit.. Eclectic atmosphere with local paintings showcased for sale. Food was average. Had both breakfast and lunch menu available prior to 11am which is a plus. Overall ok.

Great sandwiches and muffins, crazy decor. I love the coffee, it comes from Moonbeam's, next door. Wonderful soups.

Came here one Sunday because the Aiken Brew House was closed. The soup my wife ordered was warm and was a combination of assorted noodle and very little meat if any. My sandwich was ok. Had to wait an hour for the food. Will for a different place next time there on Sunday.

Delicious food - a quick meal to have with your friends - however it is so popular that you have to search for a place to sit - but well worth the effort !

First visit to New Moon Cafe. It's a tiny, eclectic cafe with an unexpected menu. We were impressed with the different choices of meals using local products. My chicken salad plate was full of fresh, vibrate colored greens, tomatoes, cucumbers, and croutons with a big scoop of pecan chicken salad on top. It was served with a thick slice of... More

I try and come here as often as I can, which admittedly isn't as often as I would like. The coffee and pastries are great in the morning, the atmosphere is inviting and the staff is friendly. I would go here before Starbucks any day!

Cozy, artsy coffee cafe in downtown Aiken,with friendly staff, featuring its own freshly roasted coffee prepared in house, along with home made sandwiches, bakery items and smoothies (best we have ever had). Great for breakfast, brunch, lunch or later.

Open most days for breakfast starting early and I see the regulars in their regular spots even though it can be 6 weeks between my visits. Free wi-fi. Light cooking going on, but mostly coffee and sweets. (They have sandwiches, soups, etc.) Very dog friendly outside. You feel like you have walked into the 1970s when you go inside--in a... More

A favorite place for breakfast or lunch! Meet a friend or group of friends. You can eat indoors or sit outside and enjoy downtown Aiken. It sits next to where their own coffee is roasted and smells divine!
