We came here on the recommendation of others. 2 of the 3 members of our party were present and we were told we couldn't be seated until the last one arrived. It's a small place but only 3 other tables were filled. We were hoping to get drinks and they must have seen that we were annoyed and finally seated... More

One of my rare indulgences is sausage gravy on biscuits and homemade baked beans. This place had both and they were really delicious. The Sausage gravy was one of the best I have ever had. The biscuits were just the right texture to not overwhelm the amazing gravy. The beans were yummy. A nice combo of sweet and savory. Service... More

Kudos to the owners of the New Moon for providing outstanding food and service and impressing the entire party. Our server(s), Kinsey and Tina were outstanding. The appetizers were terrific, the grilled romaine a big hit. The wines are very well priced and we picked up a special offered by our server. Each entree was well prepared and several substitutions... More

New Moon is a place that makes visiting Saco worthwhile. The best breakfast in the area - bar none. The best corn beef hash anywhere. And the dinner dishes are far better than the usual fare offered around. Good staff, nice ambiance, very welcoming place, and a food that cannot be beat. What's not to like?

You'll thank me later. Stopped in for a quiet breakfast everything we had was amazing. I got the cinnamon bun pancake which was phenomenal, thick and fluffy with a crispy edge around the swirl. I'm a big guy and could only finish off 1 so I'd suggest only getting two if you're starving. My wife got an omelette and loved... More

I have visited this place multiple times for breakfast and it never disappoints. They have good food for affordable prices and their pancakes are amazing. If you are looking for a good spot for breakfast in Saco this is the place to go.
