Great lunch. (Just a block from Lincoln Law Office & Old State Capitol.)

Great GOURMET sandwiches. Evidently this place is a favorite with locals, and does a huge amount of deliveries. And for tourists like me, t's just a block's walking distance from the Lincoln Law Offices and Old State Capitol. NOTE: They close at 3pm. Also, they have the look of being closed as... read more

I've been to Cafe Moxo many times for breakfast on a Saturday morning. On Saturdays, in the summer, the farmers market is right outside of Moxo's front door. The street is bustling with people shopping at the market. Many of them have brought their dogs with them and everyone Is friendly and enjoying life. Many of the shoppers stop in... More

We love the Farmer's Market.....it brings a lot of people downtown and makes it a destination on Saturdays. We actually are named after our two dogs (Moxyn and Rambo), though they are no longer romping around downtown, they still have a restaurant named after them. We are thrilled you enjoy what and how we do this food thing, we really... More

One of the best little places in town. The food is incredible. When my bosses come down from Chicago and want lunch, they usually request lunch from Cafe Moxo. The service is great, the staff are super friendly and food is served quickly even though it is not a fast food atmosphere. Get there early or have a later lunch.... More

Thanks Randy but more importantly, I hope when the bosses come from Chicago they are picking up the tab! Really though, we appreciate the review of our restaurant and our staff, they really do love to hear how their hard work pays off.

This restaurant is a relaxed place with excellent food and a varied menu. You make your food selection at the counter and carry it to your table, somewhat like a cafeteria. They always have a very good selection of items that will be attractive to all diets and dinners. For breakfast, try the "real", as opposed to instant oatmeal. The... More

We stopped in here after a visit to the Lincoln Museum. We were all pleased with our selections. I liked my "Piggly Wiggly". Service was decent. We sat outside. It was nice. Thanks TripAdvisor.

We already had a pleasant surprise the night before and didn't figure to go two for two the next day for lunch. We were delightfully surprised with our sandwiches at Moxo. Nice tangy mayo on my roast beef and a great salad with black beans for my wife. (Get the mildly peppery slaw as a side with the sandwich.) Perfect... More

Surprise OldDadDude! We are thrilled you love what we do @moxo and happy you enjoyed. We agree, the chipotle slaw is as fun as it gets without being too heavy on those little devilish peppers. We also look forward to having you come back and thank you for taking the time to let us know how we did. More

This is a very good sandwich shop with many choices. They have an interesting mix of grilled chees sandwiches along with other deli sandwiches. Also, they have different combinations with soups, chips, cookies and cupcakes. All were very good. Staff was friendly and helpful for first-timers. Do yourself a favor and five it a try.

The best soup around, and the desserts are out of this world. The carrot cake is a meal in itself and healthy, too, right?

We decided to eat here based on positive Trip Advisor reviews, and were not disappointed. Patrons order at the counter and then sandwiches are delivered to the tables. They have some creative options, such as the barbecue mac and cheese sandwich. My "simple" BLT had 3 slices of bread, so I was glad the counter person suggested only a half... More
