Hello Lisa, Please tell us what was wrong with the Blueberry Muffin? Were there too many Blueberries? We must say in all our years of owning the Blue Moon we have NEVER heard this comment. Thank you Fred and Stephanie

Menu on the website says Sam Adams and Geary's. As Robert M suggested maybe drop them a note or give them a call if this is important to you.

Closed for the Season - See you in May 2019 The Blue Moon Cafe serves breakfast and lunch 7 days a week and is conveniently located on Commercial Street right on the water. The restaurant offers both indoor and outdoor seating overlooking scenic Boothbay Harbor. The atmosphere is casual and we serve fresh and creative food at reasonable prices. Several of the Cafe’s specialties include, Fresh Baked Muffins, Cinnamon Pecan Crusted French Toast, Homemade Corned Beef Hash, Breakfast Burritos, Maine Lobster Rolls, Haddock wraps, Reubens and Crab Quesadillas. We also serve beer, wine and spirits so you must try one of Fred’s Most Excellent Bloodies which are always a favorite for Sunday Brunch. On Sundays we serve Lobster and Crab Benedicts as well as special seafood omelets. Please contact us about hosting a private dinner party on our gorgeous deck for 10 or more people. It is super reasonable.
