According to Trip Advisor this is the best restaurant in Springfield. Went there for breakfast thinking we could get eggs cooked in different ways, i.e. Scrambled or over easy. Eggs are baked somehow in foil pans. Very disappointing. Yogurt parfait was fresh. Good coffee. Pleasant staff. Don't understand the # 1 rating.

Chicken pot pie was mushy, do not get it no matter the sales pitch. There was also too much sauce on the chicken curry sandwich and nothing tasted fresh. We were pretty disappointed.

Really great food for the money. Very fresh. I didn't expect it when I looked at the prices. Three of us all had the pick 3 and we were very pleased.

A great place to visit on a Saturday morning and watch the activity on the street outside. The chicken pot pies are delicious ! Gotta have one.

I can't go to the Farmer's Market Saturday mornings without a coffee au lair from Cafe Moxo, and sometimes biscuits & gravy! The employees are great, and the food is great too. Kids are very welcome. It's also a good place to meet and work over lunch.

My husband and I frequent this business if not multiple times throughout all six days they are open a week at least once a week for sure. They are a very busy and quick cafe.

We went for lunch during a recent visit, the farmers market was also going on. We had the Tully and the Piggly Wiggly, I thought the Piggly Wiggly was the better of the two sandwiches but my hubby thought the other way around. The Tully was cold and would have been way better if the cheese was melted. The Piggly... More

We are thankful that you chose to dine with us and appreciate the review. It was nice that you had a couple of different sandwiches and one of our best drinks, the chai. The piggly is on a pretzel bun which tends to be a touch smaller than our cafe breads, but good to hear that you each found some... More

We went for lunch and totally enjoyed the delicious food, the ambiance, and the quick service. They have outdoor seating and many cafe tables indoors. We sat inside and ate our lunch in front of the big glass windows and watched the world go by. The 'Piggly Wiggly' pulled pork sandwich on pretzel bread was awesome!!! We also ordered chicken...

The food was great for a lunch-hour visit. It gets very busy around noon, so if you have a flexible schedule I would try to go at 11:30 or order online. The pot pies, sandwiches, and salad have all been very good with prompt service.

This restaurant is cafeteria style but with creative food options which are brought to your table. Most people eating here were locals who gave me advice on ordering. The half sandwich (Rambo) was delicious. Good bread as well as fillings. The half and half combo also includes chips or dessert and beverage. I bought a delicious scone for later. Home... More
