A fun, dependable venue for good coffee, good fellowship, great bagels and muffins. Fun and relaxed atmosphere. Enjoy a meal inside or out. Fun local art on display.

Ate at the New Moon Café last Sunday. Had to wait in a long line in a really crowded, noisy room with horrible, loud music playing. We ended up eating outside because the noise inside was incredible-----especially on a Sunday morning. I would never, ever go back there. Lots of inexperienced kids working there. Definitely not my kind of place.

From the service to the food: just delightful. Let me start with the service. The counter lady (wish I got her name) was incredible. It was 7/3/16 at about 11:45am...so her boss can give her a raise (smile). We had never been before and she did not make me feel bad about it at all. In fact, my husband was... More

This is a cute little place to catch a quick lunch down town. We had a sandwich and bagel chips with hummus. Those chips were awesome!

Had breakfast here recently while in Aiken. The place was crowded, they have nice table outside but all were taken. Inside is like this maze. There is the main dining area, then the building sort of meanders around and down a long hall that has quiet areas to sit and eat. I was very intrigued that they have art all... More

Every time I'm in Aiken I eat here; mainly for breakfast or brunch. Everything is homemade, very healthy. Love eating outside. Can get very crowded; so best to go "off times". All their baked items are superb.

My wife and I had sandwiches at the New Moon Cafe today and I can only describe the food as very average and somewhat expensive. I had the Cafe Club with the potato salad. Although the sandwich was thick it was mostly the layers of bread that I tasted. The taste of the contents were drowned out by all the... More

Their food is always served fresh hot and ready to eat. They have fresh brewed coffee every day. Inside service a little small tight space but well worth the food. The crab bisque is very flavorful. You can't go wrong grabbing a sandwich there.

My wife and I went to Aiken for a Sunday drive and found the New Moon Cafe. After reading the reviews and seeing that they were open for Sunday brunch we gave it a try. We noticed the special was a muffaletta sandwich and ordered it with Asian slaw and pasta salad. My wife had an iced coffee drink and... More

Love this little, eclectic place. Neat art on the walls, great coffee options, nice menu. My favorite thing, though, is the Green Monster Smoothie. Can't remember all the ingredients, but I believe it's kale, yogurt, peanut butter, ice, maybe banana?, and optional chia seeds. This smoothie is so good that I actually crave it and have to go downtown to... More
