I was thrilled to come across the quaint cafe in Cambridge and even more to see a great summer salad on the menu of arugula, grilled beets, goat cheese, asparagus and grilled chicken. My cappuccino came out and was beautiful. I sipped in while enjoying the early fall day at a table against the open windows. The arrival of my... More

Thank you for letting me know of your experience. We are passionate about serving fresh food so this is particularly concerning that your salad was not up to our standards that day. I am going to re check everything. We do stand behind all our food and if anyone is unhappy with anything in our cafe, we invite you to... More

The service here is very good; friendly staff that aim to please. The food is prepared fresh and there is a good variety of breakfast and lunch items. It is also a very clean establishment. I would definitely come here again when in Cambridge.

Went for Sunday brunch. The food was excellent. Service was great. Would definitely go again. I recommend calling ahead for a table if you're in a rush.

The food is fine but the place is LOUD. Could hardly have a conversation. The service was unimpressive as well...waitress never refilled water and couldn't comprehend a ceasar salad doesn't require chicken. The sandwiches were fine though. Probably wouldn't go back.

Make sure you arrive early or book as Cafe Luna gets very busy. Great staff, superb food - fresh and wholesome ingredients.

Matt the owner runs one of the best Sunday brunch experiences ever! Reserve ahead! The wait may be long, but get a coffee and some biscuits or the best cinnamon rolls while you wait! Any item on the special weekend menu is phenomenal! Great ambiance in the Central Square! We will be back! If you go...say hi to Matt! He... More

Went back here after my last rave review. Food still very good. Ordered lobster benedict and friend spinach one. Very tasty and so it should be for the price. Service slightly confused but hey, it was packed. Let down by badly made cappu...rushed and just a white coffee...will return and recommended

My girlfriend and I were looking for a place to eat on Massachusetts Avenue and stumbled across this place and were really glad we did. It has some pleasant outdoor seating but we sat inside because it was the only table available (which is always a good sign!). The menu had a lot of tempting options but I went for... More

There were so many choices and I ended up ordering a salad. No regrets! All ingredients were fresh and delicious! I left with my stomach full and pleased! The atmosphere was nice. The service was average. They can be really busy and forget to be friendly sometimes. That's all right as long as they serve good food-- my opinion. They... More
