I go to New Moon Cafe whenever I'm in Aiken. Local place, very dog friendly in outdoor area; frequented by locals. All food and pastries homemade. Love it. Atmosphere very laid back; prices reasonable. Highly recommend it.

I LOVE New Moon. I have never had anything bad from them. Their collection of salads, sandwiches, soups (can you say lobster bisque) and beverages are amazing. Portions are reasonable for the cost. They bake fresh daily. Smoothies, coffees, lattes, and chai are better than Starbucks. Plus you can purchase the beans on site! Wonderful place to eat.

This is a marvelous little hole in the wall. They serve there own fresh made smoothies. There soups and sandwiches are to die for. They have some interesting combinations of soups and sandswiches. Toasted brie on a brioche and crap soup with potatoe saled. My My.

Aiken is hands down one of my favorite places to visit. The southern charm, quaintness, rustic town, slow going attitude, and amazing scenery all are things I looooove about the town. My grandfolks live in Aiken and my extended family usually gathers at their "Ranch/Horse Farm" for Christmas or during the summer. I am not a horse rider (pretty much... More

We were downtown Aiken last Saturday afternoon and decided to get a sandwich at New Moon Cafe because they bake their own bread/bagels and we hadn't been there in a long time. After I reviewed the menu I decided on the chicken salad instead of a sandwich. I should have taken a picture of my salad to share on this... More

New Moon has great coffee drinks and food. Good menu for both breakfast and lunch. It's a little bit funky and small, but most of the time you can find a place to sit. It is very popular, so getting there at the right time is a good thing. I can honestly say that I have never had a bad... More

This funky place has it all! I had lunch outside at an umbrella table...spinach quiche which was absolutely perfect! Went back for breakfast a few days later. The coffee is smooth and deep flavored. My husband had the fruit parfait and cheese grits, I had never tried cheese grits and these will forever be the standard I'll judge others by;... More

Tried to eat here before but it was busy and no tables. Second time found an empty table. Interior is very "hippish", stickers, older furniture all adds to the hippy theme right down to the very loud boom box bellowing old tunes from the hippie and disco era. Place appeared clean. You order at counter and pay. Floor person brings... More

This is a great place that we try to visit each time we go to Aiken where a close friend lives. It's colorful and full or art as well as good service from their staff. They have specials daily and seasonal soups as well. Their bagels and sandwiches never disappoint. Their coffee is always fresh and they have their own... More
