Met some friends for lunch today. I ordered the gobbler sandwich with lunch box/sack lunch option. I chose to get the pasta salad and chocolate chip cookie. The sandwich was good, as was the chocolate chip cookie, but the pasta salad was bland to terrible....I ate maybe three bites before realizing I had done nothing wrong recently to deserve such poor tasting food, for close to $17, was not worth it, do not recommend, and will probably never eat there again (2 time bad experience now). Place was busy, but the line moved fast and the staff courteous (only reason for 3 stars instead of 2).More

We stopped in Springfield to visit the presidential library and museum and decided to have a bite of lunch first. Found this wonderful little restaurant on Tripadvisor. We really enjoyed our lunch. Everything seems so fresh and very tasty. The young man working at the...counter, was very friendly and helpful in trying to decide what we want to eat. There were so many choices. Definitely worth stopping by.More

We came here based upon Trip Advisor. The staff that took our order was patient, knowledgeable about what they are known for or most popular to be able to make recommendations, and was sensitive to food allergies. We had great deviled egg BLT sandwiches with...chips or tasty pasta salad. The Rice Krispie treats were excellent; I loved the addition of a few marshmallows too. Cookies good too. Thanks for a fun place to stop.More

This is a nice little cafe for lunch. I had the "Gobble, Gobble" sandwich - turkey & bacon with cranberry cream cheese, spinach and tomato on a soft pretzel bun - Yummy!

Restaurant is a good spot for lunch. We got the bag lunch deal, which came with a sandwich, chips, and cookie. The Bella sandwich was really tasty with marinated portabella mushrooms, red peppers, onions and a flavorful aioli. If they have the cherry BBQ chips,...get them because they are unique but really good. It was busy, but there were tables inside and out to sit at.More

Stopped here for lunch on a family Lincoln Tour. It is a block away from the Old State Capitol, so we walked. We all enjoyed our sandwiches. Busy restaurant but plenty of places to sit and we had quick service.

the owner here has zero concept of separating religious beliefs from everyday business practices. menu selection was underwhelming at best and ridiculously overpriced. sides were not fresh. overall a highly disappointing and laughable experience. I'd recommend spending your money anywhere else

Reading reviews we were excited to try this place while visiting from Chicago. We can for lunch around 1:15pm on Wednesday. The line at the counter was long but moved quickly. I guess I was disappointed with not huge selection of sandwiches. Most of the...were Turkey based outside of the vegan/vegetarian . Also my Turkey sandwich on pretzel bun was just sliced deli Turkey, slice of cheese and trimming for $10. No chips no drink, pickles nothing. I don’t mind paying $$ but for a nice delicious sandwich. At least the Turkey could have been roasted & carved. Chicken pot pie was good flavor and good portion. Cookies were nice as well. Overall experience average. I will not be returning…More

I first found this place while wandering around the capitol in November 2019. Food was delicious. Was recently visiting Springfield again so stopped in for brunch. It turned out to be the day of the Governor's Inauguration so it was busy but the excitement in...the air was worth if. Good food and friendly service.More

We were in Springfield to visit some of the historic Lincoln landmarks and looked up places to dine on Trip Advisor. This was rated #1 for lunch and I'm so glad we came here. We were easily able to find street parking on a Thursday....Just a short line to order at the counter. I got the combo with a chicken salad sandwich, mac and cheese, and a peanut butter cookie. You're given a GPS device to put on your table so they can find you to bring your food. The mac and cheese was very cheesy and good! I also loved the chicken and noodle soup my husband got. I liked the taste of the chicken salad very much, just wished they would have put more on the sandwich as the last few bites were dry. I would definitely return if I am back in Springfield.More

Fast and yummy. Creative too. VEGAN FRIENDLY is a plus, as my son is vegan. FAST SERVICE on Weekdays (but not so much when there is a Farmers Market in front, then it is packed!) Great selection, yummy, super portions great prices plus they are...very active in the community! Have been back and back again! You get in line, order, get a light up buzz and voila!More

We arrived at Cafe Moxo about 11 AM on a Wednesday. There was free street parking. We ordered our food at the counter and carried it to a table near the window. There was no line then but the cafe became more crowded later. We...shared a tomato soup, a tuna sandwich, and a turkey apple salad. We were given 2 large cookies of our choice for free. The food seemed fresh and tasty.More

Breakfast is until 10:30. A few things are sold all day. They have the few items listed on the menu on the web. We ordered on line to pick up breakfast at 10:15 and had no problem.
