The meatloaf sandwich spoke to me with the words of a god. When I first saw it I felt unequal to the task, but its dulcet tones and meatloafy chunkiness lulled me into nirvana. Upon completion of my task I found myself stunned, sitting at the cafe, staring off into space, convinced that I only dreamed it all.

I happened upon the Moon Dog Cafe after missing my turn to go up to Okemo, and I'm so glad I did. The food was really good and generous proportions. I had a chicken curry wrap and a hot chocolate made with real chocolate, YUM! The cafe is also an organic market and gift shop, so I also did a... More

This is my 2nd visit, and both times not disappointed in the food. The owners are really nice and remembered us when we walked in from the first visit. We definitely will make this cafe a normal stop.

We stopped in the Moon Dog café this weekend expecting to grab a quick bite and be on our way back to Massachusetts. What we experienced instead was a FANTASTIC meal (you must try the meatloaf sandwich and the thick juicy roast beef wrap). The mouthwatering meatloaf was the best meatloaf I have ever had! The servings are generous and... More

Hearty and yummy Indian style soup, moist and yummy veggie burger, and chicken wrap sandwich to write home about! The decor is interesting and some good organic products for sale. Extremely helpful staff to boot!

Our choices of the lunches Turkey Chili and Moondog Cobb Salad were great. So fresh; wonderfully simple yet beautiful presentation. Cobb salad had no egg, meat or bacon bits yet still worked well. We had a chai tea and house coffee and lunch was still under $25. Must-see funky old storefront. Just go.

I went here everyday I was in Chester, the tea selection is great and the homemade smoothies are out of this world. The shop in the Cafe is great to look around at natural gifts and nicknacks. They also serve amazing fermented tea called kombucha.

First place we visited on our stay in Chester. Great coffee and the kids loved their hot chocolates. Needed a coffee fix on Sunday morning and was so glad it was open!

Started of my day with a latte and a ginger scone. These scones are to die for. TONS of crystallized ginger inside. Friendly staff and nice gifts too.
