We were able to make a reservation for Sunday brunch for when it opened at 9:30. Good idea. The lines grew rapidly. Inventive takes on the usual fare of pancakes, waffles, eggs benedict. Eclectic crowd. Service was quite good.

Cafe Luna was one of the few brunch options within walking distance of our hotel. Talk about lucky! Let me start with the bad. EVERYBODY wants to eat at Cafe Luna on a Sunday morning. If you don't have a reservation, it's probably going to be an hour wait (if you show up when they open) unless someone doesn't show.... More

We came before it opened on a Sunday and there was already a line! The wait staff is very helpful. The service is quick. The place is tiny but they have outdoor seating as well. I was amazed at what they can cook up in their tiny kitchen. They take reservations through email. Make a reservation if you can but... More

I had the sweet potato sandwich and my son had the jalapeño Mac and Cheese. Both were delicious leaving us wanting more. Staff was friendly and very helpful. Will visit again when we are back in the Boston area!

The menu has great variety, the food is delicious and worth a wait if you find it crowded. The tables are a little tight but the cozy Ambiance matches the friendly service.

I went to Cafe Luna for breakfast with my cousin and we both really enjoyed it. The menu is really varied - I had the hardest time deciding what to get, so I ended up improvising with a breakfast sammy. She got the waffles with fruit. Everything was huge. The service was also good: I ordered a fancy coffee they... More

I can't rave enough about this gem in Cambridge!! From the cheery greeting to the food we loved every minute and will return here any chance we get. Sandy was a fantastic waitress and our food was incredible!! Lobster/avocado omelet wa great but wait...I think the fig and goat cheese omelet might be even better! Share with a table mate... More

Nice wait staff, great cappuccino, tasty breakfast. What more can you ask? Directions, if you're from out of town. And those were nicely given too :).
