Any sandwich is a hit!

I love the "Chick Chick " chicken salad sandwich. Large chunks of chicken in a curry mayo with raisins and slivered almonds. Try it on their Marble Rye bread. Yum!!

Convenient downtown location. Breakfast and lunch, food made fresh. Order cafeteria style and find your own table. We've eaten there several times and never been disappointed. Well known to locals.

My office is just around the corner from Café Moxo so I frequent this café for breakfast and lunch several times a week. You can't go wrong with anything on the menu but my favorites are the Chicken Pot Pie, Fall Over Soup (seasonal), Portabella Egg Casserole and the Turkey Waldorf Salad. I just tried the oatmeal this morning and... More

Cafe Moxo is located in downtown Springfield, a bit off the main drag as it's on a one way street that is "interrupted" by the Old Capitol. But once you find it, never let it go. The sandwiches are thoughtfully put together, both in creativity and preparation. The chicken pot pie is wonderful! The breakfasts are yummy and really big.... More

Went to lunch here w/ a friend. The only negative thing I can say about this place is the parking is hard to find. The soups and sandwiches were great. I ordered the chicken pot pie. It was very filling for lunch. The pot pie ingredients was great quality. I will try for breakfast here next time.

MarkF118, Owner at Cafe Moxo, responded to this review

Thank you for loving out chicken pot pie....we are pretty keen on it as well. We do hear about the parking situation, though there are over 29,000 spaces downtown, ours are pretty busy. We are glad you look past that and come into our restaurant and we look forward to seeing you for breakfast. More

My co-workers and I eat at Cafe Moxo all the time. We have never had a disappointing meal. The food is fresh, homemade and delicious. They have amazing salads, sandwiches and flatbread pizzas. The cupcakes, cakes and cookies are really delicious too. Can't go wrong here.

Very good selection of sandwiches, salads and soup for breakfast or lunch. Good friendly atmosphere. Perfect location - downtown, right in the middle of Farmers Market in summer. My last visit in February with co-workers for lunch scared me first with a long line, but it went fast, when we asked about table options for our big group, we were... More

We are thrilled you realize that our line can be long, but we do move it pretty quickly. In the future, if you have a larger group, call and reserve a table. Also, you can order your food online on our website and have it ready when you get here, our treat! We look forward to seeing you soon. More

Lunch counter style ordering. Decent size place. Food came out fast. Overall our selections were just ok. Tried the potpie and it was good but had no meat. My buffalo wrap was lackluster and flavor was weird due to the coleslaw. Others had the pork sandwich on a pretzel role and it came with barely any meat. My coffee was... More

We are disappointed that your visit was not at the level that you expected and have seen on this review site...we missed the mark that day. We will look at our process and make sure we achieve the highest level of consistency with each and every creation (coffee, sandwich, etc). While the buffalo wrap with chipotle slaw was certainly not... More

This is always the best lunch. From salads to sandwiches and in the winter the Pot Pie is the BEST! The service is always fast and friendly. We meet here at least once a month and it is worth it!
