“Excellent for Breakfast or Lunch”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 11, 2013

We first went to Cafe Luna in September, looking for a light dinner. The Lobster Roll special and Cranberry Walnut Chicken salad were very good, and the staff was very friendly. The waiter suggested that we come back for brunch sometime, and suggested reservations so he gave me a card. This past Sunday we were in the area again and made a reservation for lunch time (1:30). They serve breakfast all day and have an incredible menu of unique breakfast items – all four in our party were very pleased with their selections ranging from waffles to Lobster Eggs Benedict. Try the cinnamon buns – they are delicious. Highly recommended – we will be back soon. You will need a reservation on the weekend.

“Good weekend brunch!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 4, 2013 credit card Amex Card Member Review

Good place for brunch on the weekends, but be prepared to wait as the restaurant is pretty small! The coffee is great too.

“This is a place you need to try!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 31, 2013

This was the third time we had brunch at Cafe Luna and this place is my favorite. I had waffles with caramelized apples which is like have breakfast and desert at the same time. The first time I had waffles and wings on a Saturday and then came back on Sunday and had the same thing again. I would have had them again on this trip but they must have been a special and weren't available. There will be a wait but it is well worth it. The people working there are a lot of fun. You need to try this place!

“tiny place, HUGE FLAVOR!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 29, 2013

First of all, if you plan to eat here on the weekends, make a reservation. Luckily we did and we sat down within 10 minutes. The food was amazing, no complaints whatsoever.

I ordered the prosciutto, fig omelette, it was awesome, the home fries were just as good. I also ate their apple french toast with a apple cider mimosa, it was so delicious, I wanted more of each. Though I spent $70 on brunch, I felt that it was totally worth it. The food wasn't too greasy (like in most breakfast/brunch spots) and the menu offered many unique plates.

What was also neat was that they hand you crayons to doodle on the table, very cool and brought me back to when I was 5 years old. It was great to feel like a kid again.

This is by far my new favorite brunch spot in and around Boston/Cambridge. I can't wait to go back.

“Great for brunch”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 15, 2013

I suggest making a reservation. This place, like many of the gems in and around Boston is very small. The food and service are both great. This place is a bit pricey (~$15-20/person) for brunch/breakfast food. But like I said the food and service are great.
