You can't go wrong at the Blue Moon. Basic menu with good, comfort food. Meatloaf sandwich, BLT were both excellent. Great for lunch. Service a bit slow, but no big deal. Casual place that serves its purpose in this small town.

Our friend made the location choice...we just went along with it. Menu is 75-90% vegetarian/vegan....VERY little meat and NO POTATOES!!! One or two chicken choices, two burger choices and I think a meatloaf (with "spicy red sauce") Burger was large and cooked as ordered. Other items were also as ordered. The Nachcos were a little conservative on fillings - NO meat there either!! Service was very slow even though we got there BEFORE any rush began. Hard to get drink refills, etc.

Shepherdstown is a small university town of some charm in the Eastern Panhandle of West Virginia. We stopped there for a casual luncheon at the Blue Moon Cafe' and were delightfully surprised.

Decor is rustic, with an "al fresco" dining area. The outdoor dining area is well shaded, has a brook running through, and the tables are far enough apart that conversations cannot be overheard easily. The noise from the brook helps.

They have an extensive sandwich menu, an affordable wine list, and daily specials. The bacon/cheese quiche, on special when we visited, was excellent. My Brie & Beef was good but not great.

Service was excellent. Prompt and correct.

Price less than $30 for two, + tip.

Highly recommended.

My wife and I stopped in at the Blue Moon Cafe for lunch while visiting Shepherdstown for the American Contemporary Theater Festival. The influx of people for the theater festival severely taxed the cooking and wait staff of this establishment, but they did their best to rise to the occasion. The food (a Cobb salad) was great, but the waiter was a bit challenged to keep up with the normal needs of diners. All in all a good dining experience.

After being turned away from the Bavarian Inn, we went to the Blue Moon Cafe (based on Trip Advisor reviews). There are myriad vegetarian and gluten free options, so if that is something you are seeking - this restaurant is for you!

The staff was professional and friendly. The restaurant had a fun and funky vibe. However, my cheese-steak and fries were just average. The spinach dip was middling.

Still, we had a pleasant lunch and if you're looking for simple sandwiches and salads- this is a nice place to eat.
