Description: 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.

Our order was served within 10 (or so) minutes, by Stephanie she was... More

The Crunchy French Toast served at this café has me coming back year after year. The view is amazing from the back deck, service is friendly and prompt and the breakfasts are always good! I love the flavor of the crust and the "real" maple syrup adds so much. My husband had a western omelet which he enjoyed and the... More

There are only a few tables in back with water views and you are all crowded into a smallish space. You order inside and they bring the food to you. Outstanding Lobster Roll!! We would go there any time.

A short-order breakfast place can get backed-up. It happens from time to time, especially if the place is small and at the peak of tourist season. We walked into the resturaunt and ordered immediately, It was busy but not full. You order and pay at the counter -like Mac Donalds- help yourself to coffee and they are supposed to bring... More

We are not surprised to see this review from you as you were quite angry and vocal yesterday about the delay. You are correct, you did wait too long (it was not 55 minutes) and for that we apologized. The owner did reimburse you once he was finished with the customers at the counter and was quite polite with you.... More

Delicious sandwiches, great service, and the view can't be beat. We sat outside on the covered deck right on the water. There are lots of sandwiches and other lunch choices. Good value.

This is our 6 the year visiting the Blue Moon Cafe. The place is cozy and Fred's personality along with the rest of the staff are friendly and accommodating. We enjoy the crab or lobster salad and quesadillas. Fresh and the best homemade blue cheese dressing! I highly recommend that you visit for breakfast or lunch and enjoy the views... More

This place is small but the food and coffee is great. The only trouble is that the deck is small and so there is a scramble for tables as you are not seated by a server. This means that if you are not forward in your nature other 'rude' people push in front of you for the best seats. Fortunately... More

There are 8 very small tables outside and about 6 larger tables inside this Cafe. The food is very good. I had a haddock wrap that was all natural and absolutely delicious. I saw someone order the quesadilla which looked equally good and home made. You order at the counter and then they bring the food to your table so... More
