The special chicken pot pie is great. Better get there early at lunch time because this is a very popular local sandwich shop.

Cafe Moxo has a unique menu of sandwiches, salads, home made potpies, and baked goods. You can't beat the lunch special of a half bag lunch (1/2 sandwich, chips or pasta salad, cookie, and drink). The food is good and the service is outstanding!

We got there right at noon. Very busy but the line moved fast. They have a varity of lunches. Lunch in a bag included, sandwitch, chips, drink and a large cookie. Good deal. They also had individual pot pies and chips and drink came with it.

All that and a bag o' chips, sounds like you enjoyed your meal. Yes, we do get quite the line sometimes, but we are happy you saw how fast it went while still providing service you expect. We look forward to your next visit and appreciate the time it took to review your experience. More

I like going to their cafe, but they also deliver. A lifesaver when you need delicious fresh food to get through the day. If you follow them on Twitter you can find out their soups and specials for the day.

Thank you so much for saying hi, we are thrilled you love our place. You can continue to check out our soups daily at cafemoxo.com and even order online. Hope to see you soon More

My wife and I come here any time we want to go out for breakfast. Everything is great, but I'm especially partial to the breakfast burrito. Great coffee - with a bottomless cup.

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
