Amazing service, fantastic food!!

We had to wait a while since there were a lot of large parties but the owner apologized to us profusely and even gave us complimentary cinnamon buns to tide us over until our food came out. He and our service continued to apologize for the wait... and it really wasn't that long. So, truly... read more

I often go to Café Luna for lunch. The omelets, sandwiches and salads are delicious. Very well cooked, and reasonable price. Plus the staff is really friendly and accommodating. If you are considering going there for lunch, try to be there before 11:45 am or... Yes, the place is really popular! You will enjoy it!

The managers and owners here are very friendly! Their pizza is delicious! The place is very small but in the summer you can seat outside. Sometimes they have live music and it makes it nicer for dinner. Their deserts are delicious as well!

I picked a harvest salad with roasted veggies and lobster. My husband chose a sandwich full of meat. We were both happy. The breakfast choices at the table next to us, French toast, looked excellent too. Also the pizza looked fabulous.

I went here with my girlfriend on Sunday. I made a reservation because I have heard that it can be very busy. The biscuits are great. I ordered the corned beef hash eggs Benedict. All I can say about it is that it may be some of the best corned beef hash that I have ever had. I will go... More

Great brunch option but be prepared for a very long wait. We checked in on Sunday morning around 10:40 and our table (party of 3) wasn't available until 12:20. Inventive recipes and great combinations. Once we were seated service was very fast but seating was tight. The food was very good, but I don't know if I would normally wait... More

We were able to be accommodated without a reservation but I highly suggest a reservation! Our group had two different types of brioche (one with lemon curd and blueberries the other with mixed fruit) French toast with fruit and another had waffles. Overall excellent meal!

We turned up her to be told we could not be accommodated inside however we could get takeaway. Ordered the very expensive food and then found out that the waiting staff could not bring our food over to us for some strange reason that I never really understood. I had fruit cup which was ok and we had an expensive... More

Hi Jules, Thank you for letting me know about your difficulties with your experience at the Cafe. We take all the comments seriously. I am sorry we were not able to explain the situation with the outdoor tables well enough. The outdoor tables in the park are public property and we are not allowed to serve out there. We can...

The food here is AMAZING. I came here for a Sunday brunch and left extremely full. We got the Jalepeno mac and cheese (as a side), the Open Faced Breakfast Sandwich and the lobster roll eggs benedict. Everything was awesome and the portions were huge. For the size of the portions the price was extremely reasonable, and the food was... More
