Aiken's best kept sercet

Our go-to place for lunch. Always great soups and sandwiches. Coffee drinks are wonderful and they have healthy smoothies.

A throwback to the 60s. Don't go if you're in a hurry. Also seems a bit pricey. Limited seating and dark inside. Ya gotta go once just to say you've been there.

I met up with a friend o. A beauriful summer morning so we could enjoy our coffee and sweet treat at an outside table. Great for peopke watching. The coffee was just the right medium brew and the blueberry muffin was large and absolutely delicious...moist and not too sweet.

Great food and great coffee. A hippie little place that has grown to have cafes in Augusta as well. Can be a bit crowded but has nice outside and inside seating. Yummy baked goods and soups are my favorite but they have so much more.

We stopped in just passing through. I got a Peanut Butter Mocha which was very good. This is the first place I've been that can make a peanut butter mocha. We also got a turkey, Brie & avocado sandwich which was just as impressive! If we ever visit Aiken again this will be on our list!

Stopped in for coffee and a croissant and it was great. I use to live in this town and we frequented the New Moon back then. They roast their own beans on site. Great breakfast pastries and cooked meals. Sat outside in the sunshine and watched the locals visit. Great vibe.

My wife and I went for breakfast and it was amazing. They have outdoor seating where you can sit and enjoy the fresh air along with the great food.

New Moon is a unique café. Well decorated for the feel it is trying to evoke. However, it is so cramped inside! If you ever eat here, sit outside or get the food to go. The honey Dijon chicken salad is absolutely delicious!

We had the special which was a grilled cheese with apple slices, cheddar cheese and bacon with an onion mayo. It was good and filling.

You have to wait for your food but it is worth it. You will love everything. They even have great coffee.
