Yummy and casual

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.

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!

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.

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
