I really try not to be critical of the service industry, but our experience today was pretty terrible. After waiting for about 15 minutes for a table (not bad), we waited an hour for food (after watching others who were seated after us get their...food). Adding insult to injury, my bacon/eggs/home fries/toast was missing the bacon and toast (50% success?) And the waitress lied by blaming the kitchen for losing the order when it seemed pretty clear that she forgot to put the order in. Manager gave us a “whopping” 20% discount for all that. We will not be back.More

My husband and I stayed at a nearby Hilton and were very disappointed with it. So we left early and found this great little place for breakfast. Staff was hustling, very friendly, very fast and we enjoyed the fresh cooked meals. It was obviously popular...with locals and we could understand why.More

This is a little cafe on Thunderbird Rd in Phoenix. It is what I would call a little neighborhood cafe. Locally owned, very friendly, very busy. Great breakfast and lunch business. If you want the neighbor hood feel and very friendly customers and energetic servers...(especially Natascha), she was very up beat and friendly and helpful. I had 2 eggs , home fries and grain toast. the home fries were the best I have had in ages. They were made with onions and green peppers and crispy and seasoning. I could eat a plate full of them with a side of 1 egg.....If you like different experiences try the Moon Valley Cafe u will be greatly surprised.More

We stayed here before as a couple and loved it so we booked it for our family vacation as well. It is always nice and clean and the staff are friendly. The girl who checked us in was very pleasant, helpful and sweet (wish I...knew her name) The “kick back” and breakfast are why we keep coming back. It’s a great “plus” to not have to find somewhere to eat after traveling all day. During this visit we had an opportunity to meet Manager Andrew. I cannot say enough good things about him and his thoughtfulness! We came as a large family with kids and he went above and beyond to make sure we had what we needed and were taken care of. Like I said, the food is what brought us here originally...it’s the customer service and friendliness of staff that will continue to make this our “Go to” hotel when in the area. Thank you!!More

Having lived in Moon Valley for years I decided to bring a friend for breakfast here. We were greeted and seated on a Saturday morning. Got our coffee and asked what was good. Heard "everything" which is not a good sign. Looked over the menu...and asked about the corned beef "is it real or canned?" Waitress giggled and said she would ask. Said it was real so I ordered the omellette. Small strands of corned beef, flattened in egg and cheese. Hash browns that were curiously rock hard on the outside and warmish on the inside. OK coffee. Didn't know that you paid at the counter. So, OK food for a truck stop.More

Went to lunch with some friends of mine. We visited the Moon Valley Cafe and were very pleased. You can tell the same people eat there often. Everyone seems to know each other. It was 1:00 Pm and the place was pretty full. Very friendly...atmosphere. good service and food and reasonable priced.. We had the Reuben Sandwich on rye with fries and Swizz cheese $9.99 The homemade Chili for $5.95, no wonder it is voted the best chilli in Phoenix. The Veggie Omlette for $7.99. All meals were great. Will go back in a heartbeat. HeidiMore

This is a hidden-in-plain-site gem of a restaurant facing Thunderbird Road at 7th Street. After going there for a great lunch with friends, I had to go back with my husband to try the breakfast. It was well worth it! Delicious, fresh and hearty, and...a reasonable price. I had the brisket omelette, filled with shaved beef not salty and plentiful. My husband had the veggie omelette and it was chock-full also. And the coffee was good! We were not the only folks out for a quick meal during the week as the place was just about full when we left. The service is excellent, attentive, and they keep the coffee coming.More

Found this diner by searching tripadvisor and it was a great find. A varied menu and friendly service with perfect sized meals. The cake and pies looked great too but we didn’t have room! Highly recommend!

We were in Phoenix and I happened to spot this café when driving by. So glad I did. What a great place. We stopped in for breakfast. The food came quite quickly and it was very good. We could taste the freshness in all of...the ingredients. The service is very friendly. Every staff member there was upbeat and happy. We liked it so much we went several times. I had an omelette and it was above par. My husband had their meat lovers skillet and said it was great. We both had bacon and eggs a couple of times. They never leave your coffee cup empty. This will be our go-to breakfast spot the next time we visit Phoenix.More

I hadn't been to this Cafe in many years. When a friend asked where we could meet for breakfast I thought, why not try it again. We we're both happily surprised. The food is good, hearty and inexpensive. Where else can you get a simple...2 egg breakfast (with toast and choice of potatoes or fruit) for under $5?! Their pancakes are massive. Our server was very personable and deserved a great tip for her efforts.More
