Annual Bacon Dinner with 5 courses for $30. If you're willing to share, two guests can sample all menu items except one main course. The food was very creative and featured bacon that was diverse and hard to get. I loved the tag line on the menu: Bacon Responsibly

Dined there this morning based on a recommendation from a friend. Friendly service and great food! Had the maple bacon frittata special. Only downside was after a long wait it arrived luke warm at best. Another in the party had a golden beet salad. All the greens fresh. Another had a poached egg special and was pleased. Dont go here... More

This is a great place. We sat at the counter because all tables were taken. The service was efficient, the food was delicious, and the atmosphere was wonderful. Glad we got there early because there was a line when we finished.

This diner was super cute and delicious. I love old diners and this definitely had that atmosphere. The service was fast and the food was excellent. I got an omelette that came with hashbrowns (house fries) and toast. I also got a biscuit with sausage gravy and that was very good as well. My husband got the scramble with the... More

Diner style breakfast place with a bit of a line. Good omelettes and scrambles with hash and salsa. Could be a little more flavoursome but good experience

Nice tiny place that has a nice breakfast to fill you up before a day of wine tasting or going to a UVA football game. I really enjoyed the breakfast barbeque. My wife had a special omelet that had andouille sausage and peppers - I stole a taste and it was wonderful.

Very enjoyable place to dine. Food very simple but of excellent quality. Great live music in the background at a very acceptable volume. Very chilled out place and typical of the better diners I have found in US. Would visit again if ever in Charlotteville

My husband and I were staying in Downtown Charlottesville and wanted to out for a light meal and he wanted a beer. We heard of the Blue Moon Diner and wanted to give it a try. We took a short walk from our hotel to the restaurant. When we got there the bar was front and center. We were asked... More

This place came highly recommended in tripadvisor, and I therefore decided to check it out. The place has a very distinct and laid back, no bs-attitude. I arrived just as it opened and was waited on by an experienced waitress, asking me if I wanted a cup of coffee. As I have never really become a hardcore black coffee drinker,... More
