Grabbed brunch here when traveling through Aiken. Had a yummy berry shake. Their avocado toast was very good. They had a wide variety of options on their menu. Casual place but good food.

Great little place to grab a strong cup of coffee in the morning and fresh baked goods. Small place with both inside and outside seating. SO when you go to the "Masters:", this would be a good start of the day...

New Moon reminds me of a place in Georgetown, Washington, DC near Peace Frogs we used to go to in the 70s. It's sort of hole-in-the-wall and has a great local place feel. You're transported to back in time if you're in may age group. The food is great and the specials are really special! The crab bisque is to... More

New Moon Café has become my go-to spot for breakfast whenever I'm in Aiken. In the heart of downtown, it is small and friendly and serves up great Joe and muffins, grits, and scrambles. I've never been in for lunch but I would not hesitate to go for the noontime meal whenever I could. Coffee is roasted next door and... More

This is an eatery that you stand in line and order. Than you come back and pick up your order as you fix your own drink. If this is what you like to work for your breakfast eat here. We felt like everything in the menu I could have made at home and invited our friends. But we were invited... More

We had a light breakfast here on a Sunday morning and it was quite enjoyable. I had the breakfast burrito, which was the size of a small football, full of eggs and bacon with cheese melted on top. My wife had lox and bagel and it was really good too. If you like laid back, you'll love this place.

I LOVE the vibe at the New Moon. Collegiate/hippy. The coffee is usually better than Starbux, but not always. The breakfast sandwich I had there was good. The problem is that service is SO slow.

We LOVE New Moon Cafe! We've been going at least once a week for years - they pretty much know what we're going to order and we don't have to give them our name - they know it! When our kids and grand-kids come to town, that's the first place they want to go! The food is GREAT and DIFFERENT... More
