We went to the Moonakis Cafe for a late breakfast. Their pumpkin pecan pancakes were out of this world! The eggs were done perfectly as we asked. It is easy to find on route 28 just a few miles east of Falmouth. It is obviously a favorite spot for locals and busses with activity.

We just discovered this jewel this past summer. Once we found this we stopped going anyplace else for breakfast or lunch. Besides having outstanding food - and I do mean outstanding - the staff people couldn't be more welcoming, helpful, and efficient. This sounds really corny, but they honestly treat you like you're family. (I can hardly believe I said... More

Stopped here for breakfast and found it spotless and very tastefully decorated. We were seated straightaway and had coffee and tea within minutes of arrival. I chose the pancakes with scrambled eggs and ham. This also came with home fries! My husband opted for the corned beef hash with eggs over easy and said the corned beef hash was the... More

Quite local atmosphere with a variety of breakfast choices sure to capture your tastebuds...pumpkin pecan pancakes...delicious... You might need to share a plate. Healthy portions to keep you satisfied until dinner so go early not unless you're planning on having one meal for the day.

We are local, so we wait until tourist season is over to go out to eat. You'd never know it by Moonakis Cafe - the place was jumping on Sunday morning. With good reason - the breakfast was excellent. First the ambiance - nothing fancy but spotlessly clean with sun blocking shades that were very welcome today. When you enter,... More

This is a great breakfast place that also has good lunches, usually packed especially in the summer. Innovative specials, delicious omelets, the place is now spiffed up quite a lot by the new owner, previous manager Karen. The old peace nick guy having moved on it has entered the new millennium, but still doesn't take credit cards!

We were delighted with this place. We went at 11:00 am on a Wednesday. It was crowded but we were seated within 2 minutes. The breakfast menu was expansive! I loved the wide variety of omelets and I chose the Mexican omelette it came with fried potatoes and an English muffin.. It was delicious. My husband got a breakfast combination... More

Came for breakfast at about 7:30, only a couple of other tables. Food was excellent- cinnamon roll French toast, pumpkin Waffle, quiche, bacon and eggs. Fast friendly service too!
