Very disappointing meal. Overpriced ($17 for an omelette and cold sausage on the side! This doesn't even happen in NYC! ), too warm inside, cleanliness is questionable (don't look in the kitchen!), service is haphazard, no one to seat you, no signs to explain to seat yourself, sides not arriving until well after meal is over, a confusing, unappealing mess....

Locals recommended that I give Blue Moon a try & I was certainly glad I did!! Tasty fresh prepared food with friendly service. Easy to find with plenty of parking around the building. Try the artisanal bacon!!

This place is very unassuming from the outside. We were seated right away on a Monday AM for breakfast. We both had omelettes. I had a cheddar cheese omelette and my husband had a Denver omelette. I was impressed by how the omelette was rolled up. It's hard to describe but my guess is that a large rectangular pan was... More

Annual Bacon Dinner with 5 courses for $30. If you're willing to share, two guests can sample all menu items except one main course. The food was very creative and featured bacon that was diverse and hard to get. I loved the tag line on the menu: Bacon Responsibly

Dined there this morning based on a recommendation from a friend. Friendly service and great food! Had the maple bacon frittata special. Only downside was after a long wait it arrived luke warm at best. Another in the party had a golden beet salad. All the greens fresh. Another had a poached egg special and was pleased. Dont go here... More

This is a great place. We sat at the counter because all tables were taken. The service was efficient, the food was delicious, and the atmosphere was wonderful. Glad we got there early because there was a line when we finished.

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
