I always enjoy stopping by Cafe Moxo for grilled sandwiches. Preferably the Chatty Kathy ;) However, I have tried various salads, soups, and sandwiches and I have never been disappointed!

You can't go wrong with a Gouda sandwich or it wouldn't be called Gouda! Terrible humor so we will just stick to what we do - fresh food, unique menu design in a fun atmosphere with some great service. We do look forward to having you return More

Cafeteria style ordering - breakfast from yogurt / granola ./ fruit, to fluffy egg cheese and Portobello mushroom dish. Sandwiches, soups, and really warm and friendly service.

Cafe Moxo is a wonderful breakfast and lunch cafe. Everything is home made the morning of, and it shows. I had the French toast and it was absolutely amazing. The French toast came with a fruit cup, but I was so full after the large portion of French toast you are given, I couldn't even touch the fruit cup. I've... More

Moxos is known locally for superior service, good food, the country's best cookies and cupcakes, and its casual ambiance. It's also known as a hangout for local and state politicians. Can't go wrong for a good value here

We decided to go to Cafe Moxo on recommendations and reviews. Here is ours. First, food was very good. We had the chicken pot pie, which was delicious, but didn't have much chicken in it. We also had the Leprechaun, which was delicious. We also had the Piggly Wiggly, which was very shy on the piggly wiggly. There was barely... More

good food, good service, friendly place. little pricey, but, I tend to go on the cheap side. Old building downtown that has ambiance, and surprising amount of room. It't only a few blocks from the historical sights downtown, old state capitol, lincoln museum, etc.. Good choice for non fast food chain fare.

Great little cafe in Springfield IL. I had a coffee and a banana nut muffin. Great taste and it was soft. Coffee was hot. Will go back again.
