Dave owns this hole in the wall cafe. It's a slice of the early 70s. He is a genuine keeper of the flame of home cooked meals and social responsibility and activism. The meals are a bit pricey but its worth every penny for heart...More

I came across this place today and I love it! There's nothing about this place that's cookie cutter. The menu is huge and varied and the atmosphere may leave you thinking you've hit a time warp back to the 60's. Good, made to order food...More

If I lived around here, I would eat here every day. Huge menu, good prices, excellent fresh food. The service was good, and food made to order. My Adirondack salad was a work of art!

A wonderful, relaxing cafe to experience. Sit back and enjoy fine local music, tasty snacks and drinks-no alcohol, and the ambiance of a comfortable intimate spot in downtown Schenectady.

The Moon and River Cafe by itself is an excellent reason to come to Schenectady. It's located in the historic Stockade, 10 minutes from where I live, and I would visit there much more frequently were it not for the sometimes-difficult street parking there. Inside,...More
