Best for Cheap eats - Expert review of Blue Moon Cafe

A fab and friendly little 1950/60s' diner.

One of the reasons I love this joint is I can see it from my house. The others extend to: the jukebox; the groovy décor with the Rocola Bubbler jukebox and records on the walls; the amazing cakes and coffees; random items on the menu such as Scouse (a lamb casserole from not too distant neighbour Liverpool); the riverside location; the friendly staff. Since early summer 2010, the café transforms itself at night into French alter-ego Bistro Blu. It’s only open Thurs-Sat evenings, and I haven’t tried it yet, but I’ll let you know when I do.

Food and drink: 

Typical café dishes (sandwiches, cakes, soup, big breakfasts) combined with crazy additions like vindaloo and potaje (a Spanish version of Scouse). There’s nothing fancy about the presentation, but the food is good and honest.

Ambience: 

Lively, thanks to the tunes that make you want to bop, but not loud.

Service: 

Informal, but extraordinarily friendly.

Location: 

A perfectly lovely spot on the River Dee, with some tables at the water’s edge.

Price advice: 

Breakfasts, paninis, sandwiches and heartier meals (no frills) start at around a fiver.
