So true Janet A, we created the bag lunch so you can get a filling lunch at a price that makes sense (full or half sandwich, chips or pasta salad or chipotle slaw, cookie, iced tea or soda or lemonade or bottled water for either $7.50 (1/2) or $10.50 (full). You really provided an accurate picture of what we do... More

Cafe Moxo serves sandwiches, salads, fritatas and home made cookies. You grab a tray and place your order cafeteria style. The atmosphere is old red brick with tiny tables. It's not bad but it's a very expensive lunch. It's a over $17 for a sandwich, drink and cookie. There are better mom n pop lunch alternatives in the area for... More

Thank you for the review Wanderlust_INK, but I think maybe we did something wrong in charging you and would like to make sure we didn't inadvertently hit a button by mistake, so please contact me. Our price on a half sandwich/chips/cookie/drink is $7.50 and a whole sandwich/chips/cookie/drink is $10.50 so I can understand where a $17 bill for lunch would... More

Very nice choice for a lunch stop if you are touring some of the sights in the Capitol/downtown area. Sandwiches were fresh with some nice punches of flavor (turkey/bacon/cranberry cream cheese, for example), and the chicken pot pie is very good. We also liked the giant cookies. They have a variety of lunch combos that include a half-sandwich, a fine... More

This was a bigger place than we expected when we found it on TripAdvisor. It has a similar feel to a Panera Bread, but better! And the coleslaw is chipotle :-)

Thanks Bri S, we will take "better than Panera" as a huge compliment! Yes, we probably are larger than most thing (112 seated inside, 24 seated outside) so we can handle a good rush of folks.

Thanks nursesrock43, we agree, nurses are awesome!! Thank you for letting others know about some of our most popular - coffee, pot pie and of course the crazy good Brean cookie (choc, coconut, oatmeal, walnuts and raisins). We look forward to your next visit. More

its a wonderful place, great atmosphere. Not exactly an intimate setting but great food! I especially like the lasagna soup, tomato basil soup, turkey pot pies. Never had a dessert that wasn't good there.

Without a doubt, my FAVORITE place for lunch. EVERYTHING is home made daily and delicious! I have lived in Springfield my entire life but only discovered this gem a year ago.

Some really neat fusion sandwiches and panini offerings here. Very busy spot as it is pretty popular. This is an order and wait at your table for the food kind of spot. Menu is a little daunting for a first timer.. Especially with a line. Tasty and relatively quick. Would not say a must stop at, but if it's lunch... More

Thank you for the review...we do try to have items that most anyone may enjoy. We also appreciate the help in pointing out our bathroom needed some attention on the busy day you visited...busy it not, everything including bathrooms needs attention and service. We will look forward to your next visit should you be in the area again. More

This is a nice spot for a quick eat and is good quality with friendly service. Chicken Pot Pie is great but can be split. Pretty heavy for midday.
