Moxo is one of my very favorite spots to eat lunch in Springfield. I have tried many items on the menu and have never, ever had a bad meal here. In particular, I cannot rave enough about their soups, especially the Chicken Noodle, which is so delicious and flavorful. The noodles in it are huge and really tasty. Definitely not... More

I visited the cafe for breakfast and loved it so much I came back the next morning and brought a friend. We tried the oatmeal and two of their egg strata's. The cafe was outstanding and When I return to the area I will be sure to return!

The reviews that I'd seen for Cafe Moxo had my mouth watering for their chicken pot pie. Even though it was quite late (maybe 2:30 p.m.) they had one left for the dine-in crowd. I was thrilled. However, upon putting my fork into it, I found that the crust was delicious, but the other parts of it were very mediocre.... More

Park2214- certainly, our pot pie is maybe different than you expected. To be accurate for the next guest(s) - we do not put mashed potatoes in our pot pie, we do however have roasted red potatoes that make up the mix of veggies and chicken. Our pot pies are much more thick than maybe others that have come before you....some... More

Cafe Moxo never disappoints. It's a great place to relax for breakfast or lunch. They have the best oatmeal in Springfield.

This is a good place to get a reasonably priced meal in a comfortable atmosphere. The food is cafeteria style with a classy restaurant quality food. I recommend the soups especially the Thanksgiving in a bowl, when they have it on the menu. The pastries are top quality but the best item is the chicken pot pie. The cafeteria style... More

Great place for a quick easy lunch. However the menu was so limiting for gluten free I did not end eating. My family had wonderful sandwiches and a chicken pot pie.

Couldn't really work out how it all worked to start with as it was really busy - but lined up and then gave our order. Some food was there ready in a tray bake- like the french toast - which was more like an English bread pudding. Other items came cooked to order like the breakfast burrito and my gluten... More

I love the food here. A little pricey but comparable to other eateries downtown. The selection of desserts is the best and so yummy! They deliver too - which makes having working lunches very convenient. I have not had one bad lunch here.
