Wonderful breakfast / brunch! Not your everyday chain breakfast. We had the omelet and the eggs benedict and they were both delicious.

Food is below average. Goulash special definitely needed some help. Prices are high. The fact that I even bring up prices means quality doesn't meet price point. They were thoroughly understaffed. If long wait time, high prices, and below average food is common here, I don't know if we will be back.

We came here for lunch after reading good reviews. We were starving and had been on our feet all day. We didn't even stay to get drinks. The place was filthy. The tables were gross and had clearly not been wiped clean. The floor was enough to make me want to vomit. It looked like it hadn't been vacuumed in... More

We're a local couple who went in an enjoyed 3 different plates from the Wednesday tapas menu. I expected small plates but each was heaping and delicious. The waitress was friendly and it was a relaxing dinner. Love the blue moon cafe!

We stopped in for lunch on our way to Lake Placid. A cute place with great service and good quality food. Staff was very friendly and extremely helpful when we asked them for information.

Good food (breakfast is the best!), never rushed, friendly. Pour your own (good!) coffee, plant yourself at a corner table, and watch the world go by.

As for the review with the guy on the camel. We're talking about food and service. Unfortunately I can't say anything bad about this place. Amelia island gumbo a must. And the avocado dip to start. Can't go wrong. Keep up the good work guys. I'm just a local lady about her town and her people in the service industry,... More

Yea so me and my GF went to this place and the lady behind the counter looked annoyed by us. Idk if it was because we obviously look like we are from the city but she was rude. We asked what something was on the menu and she treated us like we were the most uncultured people she had ever... More

In 20 years we have rarely responded to online reviews publicly however I will since I took the time to message you directly requesting to know when you were here as well as the approximate time of day so that we could try and figure out the specifics surrounding your visit & you have not responded. We do not take... More

An informal cafe-style restaurant featuring interesting dishes made fresh with local ingredients. News menu items are frequent, including some far-out but imaginative selections like Thai fish stew, spicy and hot to the max. Friendly service. Also try the veggie burgers also made fresh. The rear seating is more cozy.
