This diner was super cute and delicious. I love old diners and this definitely had that atmosphere. The service was fast and the food was excellent. I got an omelette that came with hashbrowns (house fries) and toast. I also got a biscuit with sausage gravy and that was very good as well. My husband got the scramble with the... More

Diner style breakfast place with a bit of a line. Good omelettes and scrambles with hash and salsa. Could be a little more flavoursome but good experience

Nice tiny place that has a nice breakfast to fill you up before a day of wine tasting or going to a UVA football game. I really enjoyed the breakfast barbeque. My wife had a special omelet that had andouille sausage and peppers - I stole a taste and it was wonderful.

Very enjoyable place to dine. Food very simple but of excellent quality. Great live music in the background at a very acceptable volume. Very chilled out place and typical of the better diners I have found in US. Would visit again if ever in Charlotteville

My husband and I were staying in Downtown Charlottesville and wanted to out for a light meal and he wanted a beer. We heard of the Blue Moon Diner and wanted to give it a try. We took a short walk from our hotel to the restaurant. When we got there the bar was front and center. We were asked... More

This place came highly recommended in tripadvisor, and I therefore decided to check it out. The place has a very distinct and laid back, no bs-attitude. I arrived just as it opened and was waited on by an experienced waitress, asking me if I wanted a cup of coffee. As I have never really become a hardcore black coffee drinker,... More

It's such a comfortable and unique family feel diner close to a college. The quality of the food is also great. I saw families and college kids both loving the... More

I'll admit it....I was mad at my hubby when we walked into the Blue Moon for breakfast. But their delicious granola & fruit gave me an attitude adjustment. This is a funky, modest space, with sixties music playing softly in the background. They seem to have some very devoted regulars. We really enjoyed our breakfast!!
