We waited over 20 minutes for a sandwich and a salad. It was obvious that they forgot our order yet they didn't apologize. The chicken satay wrap-up was mostly salad, the satay sauce very watery with no peanut taste. Considering that you're expected to bus your own tables, the price was simply too high.

What a shame that you had such an unpleasant experience at the Moon. As you can see from all the other reviews, this is abnormal. I only wish you had said something to us while you were there so we could fix it. You were there at the end of a rush so, yes your meal did take a little... More

Friendly service and tasty choices with a great harbor view made for a perfect lunch stop! Tucked away in Boothbay, we would definitely return on our next visit!

Thank you so much for visiting the Blue Moon and taking the time to write a review. We are pleased that you enjoyed the food, atmosphere and the view. Believe it or not we can seat 60 people and part of our charm is the small size. July and August are really busy in Boothbay. Please come back in September... More

A charming, small restaurant with a great deck overlooking the harbor, very close to the docks where the tour boats leave. Very nice folks. I had pecan crusted French toast which was really good. Good coffee, good bacon (and lots of it), good OJ. A perfect breakfast before taking a boat tour!

You must try the blueberry pancake! Also eggs, bacon, breakfast wraps and coffee were fantastic. Even better enjoyed on the back patio looking at the beautiful harbor view!

Had a lovely breakfast on the deck. Great view for morning coffee. The only drawback (minor) was how very close the tables are.

Thank you for the review. Someday we would like to make the deck bigger which would give us more space. More

We have only eaten breakfast here. A wonderful peaceful location to eat and watch the harbor coming alive. The staff is very friendly and the food is delicious. You can sit indoors, on the streetside or out on the waterside porch(best of all).

Description
The Blue Moon Cafe serves breakfast and lunch 7 days a week and is conveniently located on Commercial Street right on the water. The restaurant offers both indoor and outdoor seating overlooking scenic Boothbay Harbor. The atmosphere is casual and we serve fresh and creative food at reasonable prices. Several of the Café’s specialties include, Fresh Baked Muffins, Cinnamon Pecan Crusted French Toast, Homemade Corned Beef Hash, Breakfast Burritos, Maine Lobster Rolls, Haddock wraps, Reubens and Crab Quesadillas. We also serve beer, wine and spirits so you must try one of Fred’s Most Excellent Bloodies which is always a favorite for Sunday Brunch. On Sundays we serve Lobster and Crab Benedicts as well as special seafood omelets. Please contact us about hosting a private dinner party on our gorgeous deck for 10 or more people.
