Captain Crunch French Toast.....ok that's 4 but it's AMAZING! Well worth the wait! The coffee is fresh and the staff are super cool and chill. Great atmosphere.

“Awesome.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 28, 2013

Went here the first time a few years ago after seeing it on the Food Network and I've been back several times since. One of my very favorite places to go for breakfast. Get there early on the weekends or you'll have to wait. The wait is WELL worth it though. Get your name on the list and go grab a coffee from the place down the street!

“Fantastic breakfast all day and night”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 20, 2013

Blue Moon is a Baltimore tradition. They are often open all night on weekends. If you try and go on a weekend morning the wait can be over an hour so be prepared. Love their Capt Crunch French toast and their crab omelets.

“A lot of light but no heat...”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed January 12, 2013

is the best description I have for this eatery. A friend and I made it a point to stop here on our way from DC to the Philadelphia Museum of Art today. I had hoped that my first breakfast at the Blue Moon Cafe would be a perfect complement to the rest of our plans. I can certainly understand how locals might find this quaint and quirky cafe an engaging place to hang out on a Saturday morning. So, I was surprised and disappointed to find the food was not great, just rather mediocre, which by itself wouldn't have been such a terrible thing. After all, no reviewer's idea of perfection (or stomach) is the same as everyone else's. The horror of it, though, was suffering poor service and watching the overall inefficiency that crashed and burned all around us. For such a small restaurant, it took an inordinate amount of time for our simple breakfast to arrive. From our seat at the window, we watched patrons waiting outside in the chill while parties of two lingered at large tables for four. But the real kicker was when we left, a waiter was outside taking names for the long wait list while clean and ready tables sat empty inside. I congratulate those who feel that the Blue Moon Cafe has the best brunch in the city for they have found a wonderful little gem. For the rest of us, you might want to give someplace else a try!

“Best brunch in the city!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 6, 2013

Thee best brunch in the city! I don't think there is one bad thing on the menu here! We had like 5 different things, just so we could say we tried it! The Cap'n Crunch french toast is beyond wonderful & magically delicious! The omelets are great, the cinnamon rolls and biscuits are great, the pancakes are awesome! This place is no joke, just wish it was a bigger space!
