This "diner" serves some of the best food in Charlottesville. A foodie's paradise without the snob factor. Enjoy Hogwaller Hash, Huevos Blue Moonos, and majorly creative omelettes. Burgers, vegan options, GOOD coffee and a terrific wait staff. All of this and it doesn't break the...More

We have eaten at Blue Moon Diner three or four times. The people are all friendly. The coffee is delicious. The egg dishes have always been good, and the beet salad is a favorite. However, beware if you order a hamburger. My husband had one...More

Great food but we were there for Sunday brunch and it was very crowded. The service was a little overwhelmed but they were trying hard.
