The best pot pies I've ever had. Everything is fresh and good sized portions. I love eating lunch here. I take my cookie to-go and enjoy it for a mid-afternoon pick me up!

Breakfast burrito is fantastic. Great oatmeal and French toast. Everything on the lunch menu is delicious. This is our regular morning stop during Saturday Farmer's Market.

We went here for lunch on a rainy Monday Columbus Day and were grateful that they were open on a holiday! Thank you for being open! The staff is so friendly, the choices are really good, and the service was great. This is a really cool place for lunch downtown if you are visiting the Lincoln home and museum.There was... More

We are thrilled you could find us on Columbus Day since Christopher Columbus was a little directionally challenged. Really though, we appreciate the time you took to not only review us, but alert others as to what you enjoyed. If and when you return, we look forward to taking care of you again. More

I go here at least once every 2-3 months and often for bday celebrations of co-workers. What I love most is, not only is the food quality consistent, but probably the #1 attraction is the pheonmenal service & friendliness of the staff. So refreshing these days to find friendly, helpful, extremely over the top service. Cookies are great tea is... More

Every time I come to Springfield I eat here. Great sandwiches and excellent soups. I had the pot pie this time. Almost more of a shepherd's pie. Very good. I've never had a bad meal here. Price is right, people are nice, place is cool.

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
