We LOVE New Moon Cafe! We've been going at least once a week for years - they pretty much know what we're going to order and we don't have to give them our name - they know it! When our kids and grand-kids come to town, that's the first place they want to go! The food is GREAT and DIFFERENT... More

Loved the New Moon. Stopped in for lunch. The cookies were great. The special sandwich and soup were very good. My wife really liked the coffee and I the iced tea. Everyone is very nice. A little slow but so what. Kind of a 60's wanna be. Works for me. Especially the cookies. Try it tomorrow for brrakfast.

Great coffee shop with its own flare and character. The bagel sandwich was really good. There sweet sensations looked outstanding but my self disciple preserved.

Ordered the Fiona wrap (veggie wrap). Assumed the veggies would be cooked... They were not. So it was okay. The side salad was great. The ambience outside made up for the average food.

i had the chicken salad plate. It was perfect for a high summer afternoon. Chicken salad with lettuce, cucumber and tomato. The dressing was on the side which was good as I didn't care for it - too vinegary. I didn't pay but heard it was a bit expensive for lunch food. But it was good and convenient to the... More

Extremely small downtown restaurant but very busy. Only about 6 tables inside and maybe 3 outside. Unusual menu of soup and sandwiches but very delicious. Expect a wait.

I've been stopping by for coffee and a muffin/bagel/other baked stuff for 5 or 6 years. Never had a bad experience. I've had luch several times and it was good as well. Only draw back is that it is popular and sometimes the line can be pretty long - but well worth the wait. It's fun to sit at a... More

Small, quaint and reliable. They roast their own beans, and serve a limited menu of pastries, smoothies and simple-but-delicious entrees. Be prepared, you're asked to pony-up some additional change for coffee refills. Fun to watch newcomers grab the fake door handle when exiting.
