Always a line to get in on a Sunday morning, we were lucky to arrive at 8:00. Only a 2 minute wait. Great food, friendly and efficient service, and everyone is happy to see you. Great standards like omelets and pancakes and specials like pumpkin walnut waffles. Best place in the area for breakfast.

The omelets are delicious and the blueberry pancakes are sensational! There is a wait on the weekends but it is well worth it! The service is fast and the orders are prepared quickly and always correct. Yummy place for a meal.

Moonakis Café was recommended several years ago for breakfast so we decided to give it a try. Our food was wonderful. From the waffles, to the omelettes, but my favorite are the buttermilk pancakes. I've had buttermilk pancakes all over the country, but these are by far the best I've ever. Also, their coffee is quite good. I keep coming... More

Service was very good, especially considering how busy they were. Some of the "Specials" seemed pricey but I'm sure it they were excellent. Not surprising it was so busy. Would love to try... More

Blueberry Pancakes & chocolate chip pancakes were good. The place is small and tightly packed with tables. Everyone talks louder so they can hear over the next table. I liked that the AC wasn't too cold. The wait was about 45 min on a beautiful summer morning. I mau give this place another visit someday.

Four of us went here for breakfast and our food was prepared exactly as we liked it Our server was friendly and quickly brought our orders Highly recommend Think you should arrive early as we did (a little after 9) otherwise you could have a long wait
