Sunday breakfast at the Moonakis Cafe is a must if you are within 20 miles of Falmouth. They close at 12 noon so get there early and be prepared for a wait, One of the blackboard specials on this visit was a Lobster, Spinach and Boursin omelette. There was lobster meat in every bite, first to last and the creamy... More

We were recommended to come here and we were not disappointed. We had the Eggs Benedict and it was superb. There is a great choice on the menu. We were on holiday but if I lived here I would be a regular customer.

Wonderful breakfast menu with some terrific egg sandwiches, quiche, French toast (varieties!), pancakes, waffles, etc.. My pumpkin waffles were terrific and the Portuguese Fench toast is a must try if you haven't had it! You can order pure map,e syrup (extra) if needed. Expect 30-45 minute wai on Sunday mornings. Weekdays are much easier!

I eat here about 6 times a month on average. PPumpkin nut waffles are the best. Pancakes to die for. I could go on and on. Can get very busy but the kitchen keeps up and quality never suffer s. Staff are fantastic Karen and Linda ROCK.

We are pancake fans. Moonakis near West Falmouth makes our top three in New England. We sampled both the cranberry nut and blueberry. Both had plenty of fruit. As another reviewer said they are "egg-y", and delicious. Service was fast and friendly, with prompt coffee refills. We had no wait early on a weekday morning in late September. We'll always...

Unique combinations of ingredients make breakfast an especially tasty experience. Lemon-poppy and pumpkin-pecan pancakes were outstanding. They were flatter than I expected, but delicious. The lobster-spinach omelet with boursin cheese was amazing.

Leaving the cape, we were looking for a great final experience for breakfast, we found it at Moonakis Cafe. A lovely waitress, regular coffee refills, and awesome food makes this a perfect place. All of the staff was friendly and attentive. We didn't have a wait on this Saturday in September at 10 AM. The pumpkin nut pancake was amazing,... More
