“A welcome change”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 29, 2012

We had been on the road several weeks travelling from New Zealand and we were soooo sick of getting a meal that always included fry's. We walked into the Blue Moose and we're delighted to see "normal" lunch choises such as scones and paninis and wraps and not a fried potatoe in sight!! It was also possible to get an ordinary cup of hot tea with milk without throwing the staff into a confused frenzy! And they even offered just plain old black tea...I didn't have to suffer another herbal tea!! Husbands apple pie was supurb but his coffee was just ordinary weak North American coffee which we don't enjoy. Our turkey paninis were very tastey but so generous in size we could have shared just one. The staff were friendly and helpful and we were so happy to have had such a "home like" meal that we found the manager/owner Wes to thank him. All in all this was a great stop and we will return on our next visit. Fellow travelling Kiwi's, and even Auses will enjoy this place. Oh, last but not least they had nice clean bathrooms.

“Great atmosphere, friendly and knowledgeable service”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 27, 2012

Love the moose! They serve ethical bean coffee - Rocket Fuel is my favourite.

Enjoy local art in store and the chainsaw carvings outside.

“Great Food and Coffees”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 11, 2012

We've visited several times and really enjoy the Blue Moose. The people are friendly and, even though it seems to always be busy, they get you through the line-up quickly and bring your food in a timely manner. We love to people watch there as there are many tourists who stop in on their way by. A bench in the park right across the street is a good back-up if all the tables are full.

“Nothing special”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 9, 2012 via mobile

I'm always disappointed when I come here, below average coffee, decent drinks and decent food. I think it's still running because it's local (which is why I sometimes go there), the giant moose outside (but that's now gone) and the beautiful park just outside.

“Unexpectedly Good!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 3, 2012

You expect decent coffee and tea in a specialty coffee house. What was an unexpected surprise was the great food choices. Starbucks, take note. This place has wonderful food items that are not overly sugary or doughy. Had the best breakfast sandwich which was a biscuit/scone with eggs, cheese and ham. The scone/biscuit was perfect! Light, great texture.
