“Great location, sidewalk tables, pleasant atmosphere, counter staff unfriendly, food & coffee amazing!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 22, 2012

We decided to give this place a try after passing by two other times. I'm so glad we did!
We were in time for breakfast, which is served until 11. My husband chose the whole grain bagel with cream cheese- they put the cheese on for you, so if you prefer it otherwise, say so- , and a green smoothie which was very good. I ordered a savory omelet with the intent to share. It was huge, perfectly made, not dried out at all, and just delicious.
We also decided on a cranberry walnut scone from the pastries available (mostly muffins, but everything looked wonderful), it was so moist and melt -in -your mouth that we went and got another!
The only problem we experienced was the counter staff. They were not helpful, unfriendly and it felt as if you were interrupting them from their duties upon placing your order (!). However, the manager was friendly and helpful, and he served us our food.
The menu offers lemon ricotta pancakes, turkey bacon, French toast, steel cut oatmeal, and they use organic eggs as well.
This place is a must-try if you are in the area, thankfully the attitude of Harvest Moon counter employees did not affect the overall experience, nor the taste of our food!

“Great atmosphere and great upgrade in staff and service!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 27, 2011 via mobile

I have been going here for years. Love what the new owners have done. Staff is amazingly friendly and knowledgeable. I don't live in the area and even after several momths, they remembered me and my drink. Great service. Health food store has added a nice twist to the business and some cool items on the menu. They have recently added some amazing cocktails selections to the menu. A must try is the hybiscus cocktail. Absolutely the best palce for cocktails in the area! Very well designed cocktails based in the business. They also cleaned the place up. Got rid of the old decor which was a little dirty. I make a point of going there whenever i'm in Canal.

“Nice, local coffeeshop & lunch spot”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 13, 2011

Had a couple of good breakfasts here. Good coffee, nice, healthy options for meals, great staff. I didn't have much time to linger and they were efficient at getting my order ready. It's just a few minutes from the major thoroughfares and in the middle of downtown Canal Winchester a few minutes from the hotel I stayed in, the Best Western Canal Winchester.

“Better Quality Food - Juice/wheat grass”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed April 24, 2011

The new owners also run a health food store. The old customers were use to the previous set up, change does not always make people happy. The owners Kelly & Nathan both are working towards making the meals healthier. I myself have eaten there and find the atmosphere great for family and friends. The food is good, not to mention healthier. Kudos to Kelly & Nathan for taking a leap in a small community to share a healthier choice than a diner! You can also buy fresh juice, wheat grass. GOOD LUCK to you BOTH!

“New Owners Suck”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed February 19, 2011

I have been a longtime customer of this place and used to go in daily for their frescantes, bagels, etc. Less than a year ago, it was sold to new owners. Unfortunately, they have taken a great business and RUINED IT!!!! I have never seen such a mismanaged business. They altered the decor - making it more sterile and uncomfortable by now only having stiff tall chairs and tables. There are no more couches or overstuffed chairs and very little ambiance that gives it the independent coffee house feel that it used to have. The business model is confused and they are not sure whether they are there to sell wheat germ and health crap or cafe food and coffee drinks. To add insult to injury, they now are closed on Saturdays "to observe the Sabbath." How stupid are these new owners??? Saturdays are a huge coffee and breakfast morning in Canal with farmer's markets. Traditional coffee houses make a majority of their profits from weekend morning revenues. Evidently, these geniuses think they can sustain their poorly-run business on weekday business alone - silly. Maybe if they laid off the health food and actually relied on a formula that worked for the previous owners, they would be more successful. What an utter disappointment - I will NEVER go back.
