is the best description I have for this eatery. A friend and I made it a point to stop here on our way from DC to the Philadelphia Museum of Art today. I had hoped that my first breakfast at the Blue Moon Cafe would be a perfect complement to the rest of our plans. I can certainly understand how locals might find this quaint and quirky cafe an engaging place to hang out on a Saturday morning. So, I was surprised and disappointed to find the food was not great, just rather mediocre, which by itself wouldn't have been such a terrible thing. After all, no reviewer's idea of perfection (or stomach) is the same as everyone else's. The horror of it, though, was suffering poor service and watching the overall inefficiency that crashed and burned all around us. For such a small restaurant, it took an inordinate amount of time for our simple breakfast to arrive. From our seat at the window, we watched patrons waiting outside in the chill while parties of two lingered at large tables for four. But the real kicker was when we left, a waiter was outside taking names for the long wait list while clean and ready tables sat empty inside. I congratulate those who feel that the Blue Moon Cafe has the best brunch in the city for they have found a wonderful little gem. For the rest of us, you might want to give someplace else a try!
