Came for breakfast on a weekday because the lines were crazy on the weekend. The food was tasty (I didn't choose the most original dish) and my chai latte was perfect.

Came here after landing from SFO redeye and were not disappointed--quite the opposite! Lobster and avocado omelette had lots of tender lobster, big chunks and even split between us I felt satisfied- $20 but split worked out to $10 apiece. Smoked salmon bagel was also just as generous with the salmon- freshly smoked by the restaurant and delicious! Served with... More

Came here on President's day at 8:50 for breakfast and there was already a line before they opened at 9. They're small but do take reservations despite being so popular so take advantage if you can! The service was very nice as the owner promised to get us all on the list as soon as he can. Our waiter was... More

Cafe Luna accommodated us on a busy Saturday morning at the bar. It's efficiently run and the service is quick and thorough. It's obviously a very popular place and many people were waiting for tables, it seems we were lucky to secure our spot at the bar without a wait! The only struggle was choosing what to have from their... More

Back at cafe Luna. Still great food and service. The owner was so nice last time and once again really nice. My omelette this time was good and we asked for Nutella stuffed waffles with caramelized pecans and bananas. Definitely the highlight of my brunch experience. I suggest making reservations in advance! All you have to do is email them.... More

We arrived at opening on a Sunday. We were allowed to put our name in slightly before opening and all who were there somehow got seated. Service was friendly despite how busy it was. Food was inventive and fresh. Portions were well sized without being huge. Prices were very fair for the quality of food. Our server made recommendations and... More

Cafe Luna is small but it has great food. It is better if you can make a reservation, but they also seat walk-ins, though you may have to wait. On the weekends they serve only brunch. The food was amazing. During the week they serve breakfast, and then lunch. Soups, salads, everything is just terrific. Once we were seated and... More

My wife and I ate breakfast at Cafe Luna Tuesday and Wednesday this week. The restaurant is small and at 7:30 AM, when it opens, very quiet. The service is excellent, almost joyful. Every request was cheerfully delivered. In fact, the high quality service goes a long way to making breakfast here a real pleasure. Cafe Luna reminds me of... More

The people, service and food were awesome. I would highly recommend to make a reservation before you go. Our waiter Mike was koo and funny. Terri the Chef is very creative with all of her dishes. My wife and I can't thank Matt enough for taking out the time and sharing a few jokes with us. All the food and... More
