Always a nice place to eat; great service and value

The Blue Moon is quite popular with the locals who seem to frequent this cafe along Main Street in Saranac Lake.

This was recommended to us by some locals. It was a great tip. Ample portions of really good food (I had two breakfasts there) and fair prices. Very comfortable setting (not loud like most places these days!) and friendly staff. SO nice not having to rely on chain outfits for food.

We love breakfast and/or brunch what ever you prefer to call it. They make an incredible crab cake benedict and great sandwiches.

This place has the potential to be an above average cafe - just needs a little updating. Decent staff and atmosphere - could be a little more welcoming and upbeat. Food is good, but the menu could be a little more inventive. Self serve coffee station is great - picking out your mug can be quite the adventure seeing all... More

Great atmosphere, right in the heart of the village. Good people watching, good spot to meet friends. I'm a local and eat here at least once a month. Staff is friendly and the daily specials are exceptional. Try something new, you'll be glad you did!

Best breakfast in town and tasty, interesting food all day. Very informal, covers vegetarian well but great breakfast hash as well. Love the lunch specials.

Stopped in for lunch right before closing after a long snowy hike. Waitress was sweet and prompt. We were asked to help ourselves at the self serve coffee station at the counter, was surprised but the delicious coffee made up for it (made a few trips back and forth). Food was very good; I ordered a chicken panini which was... More
