We were driving through Chester and stopped by the Moon Dog Cafe on a whim, as the sign and front window looked interesting, Wow, we were in for a pleasant surprise!! The food was freshly prepared, delicious, creative and beautifully presented. I got the roasted tomato and goat cheese soup, which was incredible, along with a curry chicken salad on... More

Stopped here for lunch and was pleasantly surprised by there offerings, service and quality of food. I enjoyed a mixed salad with organic chicken breast which was bountiful and super delicious.

The tables are interspersed throughout the store/cafe -- among interesting collection of gifts. The table in the window is the nicest, but you'll enjoy a good lunch here. I almost order the curried chicken salad - it's big enough to share. The soup is always unusual and excellent. And their desserts are great - my favorite is the carrot cake,... More

We had a great lunch in this cool and eclectic space. The food was excellent as was the service. It obvious that everything was fresh and prepared with care. I encourage anyone on the way home from Okemo to check it out. It is literally 1-2 minutes down Main St. in Chester and the best food we have had on... More

We happened upon this place while driving north to tour a few breweries, and it was absolutely wonderful!! The food was outstanding and the employees were very friendly and welcoming. Literally some of the best breakfast food I have ever had. We had the bread pudding muffin and the egg soufflé. Highly recommended. Coffee was also excellent.

We dined in for lunch. Our food was ok (just ok) but after the great reviews I did expect much better. There was not a great range of food available, I did not think the place was very clean, and I think there are much better places to eat in the town

Stopped for lunch. Fresh gourmet sandwiches, soups,salads and pastries. Seems everyone knew each other. Wish I had a place like this at home, guess I will need to go back!
