The New Moon Cafe (Aiken, SC)
116 Laurens St NW, Aiken, SC 29801, T: 803-643-7088
The New Moon Café has three locations: two in Augusta, Georgia, and one in Aiken, South Carolina. We visit the Aiken one, which is an adorable little cafe in the cute downtown. It has a small terrace in front, a relatively small quaint front room, and a larger extension in the back. Most customers this summer Sunday are related to USC Aiken: (retired) professors and students. It also seems a favorite spot for recreational cyclists. It has great coffee, breakfast, and lunch selections.
I choose the Lumberjack Breakfast ($6.29): a big heap of scrambled eggs, a sausage patty, and two big slices of toast. It is both delicious and filling, the perfect breakfast. M. has a large Breakfast Parfait ($3.99), which includes coconut, fresh granola, and berries. There is not too much yoghurt, but it tastes very sweet, but nice. We also get a Cinnamon Role with chai icing and a Peach Muffin ($2.09 each). The first was a bit dry, but not too sweet, the second very moist, but not with a very strong peach taste.
The New Moon Café is a very nice breakfast place for such a small town. Great atmosphere, good food.
