I really like this place. OK, the waffles I had were average, as was the bacon. But the staff is great, the restaurant is cute, and it has a really cool feel to it. I would go back.

This cafe is obviously a neighborhood gem. It was busy when I passed by early in the morning on my way to yoga and just as busy when I stopped in for lunch after yoga. The menu has a great mixture of meat and veggie options. I had the belgian waffles. The cream was freshly whipped and the fruits were... More

A bit noisy but the menu has selections for all tastes. However the omelet with salmon, bacon and avocado was not edible--just too much fat. The gorgonzola bacon omelet was terrific as was the one with fig and procuitto. And the biscuits are not to be missed. The place is small so make reservations. Once we were seated the waiter...

I cannot say enough good things about Cafe Luna! We arrived before they opened on a Saturday morning, and had a 45 minute wait, as we had not made reservations ahead of time. However, the tall gentleman who took our names was so nice that we didn't even mind the wait. We wandered down the street to get coffee at... More

Never got a chance to eat here, after waiting 20 minutes for the place to open. While the staff watched us wait outside with seven people, we were then denied because we would apparently take up too much room in the restaurant. Denied paying customers for taking up precious room for other customers...pretty bizarre.

Dear Girly, I am very sorry you did not get to dine with us. This was a misunderstanding on your part of our tiny restaurant and I apologize for that. We only have 28 seats inside and most are taken by reservations that we take one month ahead. There is never any space for 7 inside as a walk in.... More

This place is fantastic. The food is really tasty and fresh. Good amount of choices in weekdays or weekends Nice location in Cental and the staff is usually really friendly! Only drawback, really crowded, hard to find a place on weekends.

I went to this place four years ago and I have been longed to come back here again ever since. Fortunately, dream came true last month. I was so happy to wait at their chilly shop front on Sunday morning for almost an hour to be one of the first round customers to get in there. Foods and drinks are... More

I love Cafe Luna. It's hard to get in there - you have to reserve well in advance or face a long wait - but is always worth it. The fruit cup is really good, and I love the butternut squash omelette. Interesting food, fun crowd. One of my favorites.
