We loved this place. We went for breakfast and had the pancakes (really fluffy) and the avocado and smoked salmon omelet.

You must must try the lemon ricotta pancakes, they are so fluffy you can’t believe what you are eating! Everything we order was really good and excellent service! 100/100 recommended.

This was our second visit to Cafe Luna (last on 3 years ago) and I was somewhat surprised to find they had expanded. In any case, we love the funkieness of this place. Excellent food and lots of innovative items to choose from.

We thoroughly enjoyed our meals at Cafe Luna. We arrived early and had a chat with one of the owners while we were waiting for our table. I was impressed by the attention he paid to the dining room. The service was excellent
