Chill atmosphere

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... read more

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!

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.

Great coffee and breakfast spot. A bit slow on service. Not a lot of cafes or bakery/coffee spots to choose from in Aiken.

This small café was a great place for lunch. It was very busy (which is always a good sign) and the food was amazingly fresh and generous portions. The sweet tea was just right. The only reason I didn't give it five stars is because it could have been a little cleaner for my taste - messy more than dirty.... More

Nice menu. Great coffee and freshly made. Have eaten there several times. My last visit, I enjoyed the Cuban roast pork & ham with melted swiss cheese, mustard & dill slices on Cuban bread. However the place is small and can be very busy during lunchtime. There is outdoor seating in warm weather.

Great soup and sandwich cafe in heart of historic Aiken, food very fresh and homemade style. Excellent soup!! Place is small, but there are tables in the back also. One of the very few places open on Sunday in Aiken

Good healthy food and a relaxed atmosphere with free WIFI. The Green Monster drinks are great. You can bring your dog and sit outside.

Grab a cuppa java and a pastry and people watch. It's a busy place. Everyone is friendly there. We go often.
