My wife and I ate breakfast at Cafe Luna Tuesday and Wednesday this week. The restaurant is small and at 7:30 AM, when it opens, very quiet. The service is excellent, almost joyful. Every request was cheerfully delivered. In fact, the high quality service goes a long way to making breakfast here a real pleasure. Cafe Luna reminds me of... More

The people, service and food were awesome. I would highly recommend to make a reservation before you go. Our waiter Mike was koo and funny. Terri the Chef is very creative with all of her dishes. My wife and I can't thank Matt enough for taking out the time and sharing a few jokes with us. All the food and... More

Bummer; came here for the French toast and they were out by 9:15. Other breakfast options, while good, weren't worth this pricy place. Also we weren't told menu items weren't available until after we ordered. Inexcusable at a restaurant this expensive.

Dear Foodie, I am so sorry that you had this experience. During the week, we do not make the same french toast as the weekend brunch menu. It is a baked version and once we sell out, we have to remake and it takes 24 hours to set. Yesterday was particularly busy to our surprise as we are going into... More

Having lived in Cambridge for about 5 years, this place was a frequent spot for us. And now when we visited the city again, we stopped by for Sunday brunch to Luna and it reminded us why we love this place so much. This place tends to get busy so try to make reservations in advance or be prepared to... More

Located in Central square within walking distance of MIT, this cafe has excellent food and great service. particularly great are the various salads which feature fresh greens, vegetables , and other toppings. It is small so it can be somewhat noisy and the music can be too loud for ordinary conversation, but the staff will lower the sounds if it... More

We knew we had arrived after spotting a small crowd mingling outside of this intimate food establishment. In nice weather, lots of open space to enjoy while waiting. The owner greeted us, took our name, and asked whether we were from out of town or local. He then engaged in friendly conversation and during our 30 minute wait, we shared... More

If you prefer the small owner operated (versus big chain restaurants) places to eat, this cafe fits the bill. And if quality and quantity is what you're looking for...this place has it all. In this family run cafe, the food was absolutely off the charts amazing (Make sure you try the hash - even if it's just as a side... More

You will need to make a reservation well in advance for brunch, but it is worth the trouble. The food is great, the servers are friendly, and the location is convenient. I had the lemon ricotta pancakes and was very impressed.

Thank Gabi S
