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 !

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!

Great for a quick yummy meal. You can do either healthy or binge. They offer both choices. The inside is border line hippy dippy which isn't my thing. I wish they'd class it up just a hair. It can feel a little dirty.

I always look for where the locals most enjoy food. This place had a line a half an hour before it opened! The food was delicious and well sized (I couldn't finish my scramble!!) and worth every penny. The coffee shop has unique charm, and clearly the locals (and their pups) frequent this little cafe! Well worth a meal!

I love going to this place when we're in downtown Aiken. .. pretty good espresso. ... great croissants. ..... and very chill coffee house atmosphere. .... The employees are always nice especially the super tall guy (I don't know his name. . Sorry I know that's rude) but he's really nice anyway. ... The food from the menu is OK.... More

In Aiken the New Moon is a place for great coffee and snacks, including lunch. It is small, but there are tables outside and along an outside wall. Try it you won't be sorry.
