The Blue Moon Cafe serves breakfast and lunch 7 days a week and is conveniently located on Commercial Street right on the water. The restaurant offers both indoor and outdoor seating overlooking scenic Boothbay Harbor. The atmosphere is casual and we serve fresh and creative food at reasonable prices. Several of the Café’s specialties include, Fresh Baked Muffins, Cinnamon Pecan Crusted French Toast, Homemade Corned Beef Hash, Breakfast Burritos, Maine Lobster Rolls, Haddock wraps, Reubens and Crab Quesadillas. We also serve beer, wine and spirits so you must try one of Fred’s Most Excellent Bloodies which is always a favorite for Sunday Brunch. On Sundays we serve Lobster and Crab Benedicts as well as special seafood omelets. Please contact us about hosting a private dinner party on our gorgeous deck for 10 or more people.

There is good variety and a fabulous back deck view here but neither one of us can recall anything that would motivate us to return. I had a main dish salad and my husband had a roast beef wrap. Both were good but again, nothing special. We did not have bad service but I also don't remember that special touch... More

Breakfast was well prepared and coffee was excellent. This place has counter service, but the food is delivered to your table. My wife had blueberry pancakes, I had poached eggs and wheat toast. The couple we were with had oatmeal and an omelet. Everyone was pleased. It was a good start to the day.

We often visit Boothbay Harbor from UK. Once again, we enjoyed breakfast on The Blue Moon deck every day: this place has three things that bring us back. The location: right on the water with fantastic views of the harbour and passing boats. The food: fresh, generous portions and they will make anything you want........even an English Bacon Butty.

Needed a pick me up, not a full meal after driving. This was located by the wharf. We had a spectacular view of the ships, boats, people, and the pier. The burgers were great. It was definitely worth stopping by.

My husband and I had lunch at the Blue Moon Cafe recently. We shared a sandwich as we were not real hungry...but it was really good. The sandwich was definitely large enough to share! It was nice sitting on the deck watching the boats go by. Great spot for a meal! We'd go back!

We were looking for a breakfast (brunch) place on the water before a whale watching trip and these guys fit the bill. Order at the counter and grab a seat on the deck and they bring the food out to you asap. My bride hand the blueberry pancakes (3 huge ones!) I had the 'blue moon sandwich' (Also huge!). I... More

This is a very small little restaurant with great food. They serve breakfast and lunch. We have only had lunch there and it was great especially the blueberry pie ( homemade). Great view of the harbor.
