Good lunch stop!

Sandwiches and salads were good! It is a small place but we enjoyed our lunch here. They have a little outdoor seating and some indoor seating.

Our favorite place to stop when in Boothbay. EXCELLENT smoked salmon cream cheese bagels as well as the bloody marys. It was a very busy weekend and they were short staffed but ALWAYS worth the wait.

Went looking for a place for a good breakfast, this was not it. The food had no taste, hash browns you couldn't even chew. It looked good....but didn't taste good! A little more effort into the cooking !!!!!!!

Ok so here is the deal, the food was not amazing, but the view is beautiful. The mimosa was good, the latte was good too. And the waitress even though she was swamp was nice. I had the banana walnut pancakes, they were good. My boyfriend had the hot eggs and would not recommend them.

Disappointed, as we went based on prior rave TripAdvisor reviews. We went for breakfast, and we were not impressed. The staff was extremely nice and accommodating, but the food was lacking any real discernable flavor. The view was incredible and the coffee was good. I would try again, but this day was not their best in our opinion.

The Blue Moon had become my number one place to have breakfast in Boothbay Harbor. The menu selection and the view is wonderful. Recently I have found that the service has taken a bit of a hit as a result of their not being able to get and keep enough staffing. Our breakfast once took about 2 hours from ordering... More

Michael - your review really warrants a response as we value you as a customer! Some of your points are spot on and some need a little clarification from us. Yes a 2 hour wait is terrible, so is not getting your blueberries and being told that the waitress is afraid to go back to the kitchen. I am sorry... More

I hate to let you in on this gem. Little place, maybe 8 tables on the outside deck. You order inside and the wait staff brings your order out to you. They have beer, wine and cocktails. Try the crabmeat roll, without a doubt the best crab roll I've ever had. Served on a buttered, grilled roll with chips and... More

We were fortunate to find this adorable little cafe right on the water for breakfast. An extensive menu at moderate prices and delicious food. A place we look forward to visiting again.

Spent a couple of days in Boothbay Harbor, while waiting to embark on our Puffin watching cruise, we enjoyed a great breakfast and Bloody Mary at Blue Moon Cafe. The owner chatted with us, about the place, the menu and Boston Whaler boats, it was a piece of vacation pleasure. The view from the small outside balcony was pretty, the... More
