This small, somewhat eccentric cafe is a local favorite. The decor is certainly part of the cafe's charm- bright primary colors abound, the thrift store furniture is mismatched; mannequins, dolls and other toys decorate the window sills, walls and even the ceiling. But it's the food that keeps the locals coming back. It's a terrific blend of traditional home cooking and lighter vegetarian fare. The French toast (served all day) is one of the city's treasures.
Good food, quirky atmosphere, bad service. This place has all the makings of a great diner, but the table sections (if there are any...it seems like a free-for-all amongst the servers) are disorganized and it really shows when you end up waiting 10 minutes for a cup of coffee.
The eccentric decor was definitely the pull for us to visit, but we were quite surprise to see the abundance of fares offered and the reasonable price. The portions were generous and our 4 yr old son had a blast roaming through the rooms. We went there on a Sunday early in the evening, so the diner was pretty much empty. Papermoon also offers a wider variety of desserts, so save some space for their scrumptious cheesecakes or apple tarts
The food is really good, the prices are okay, and the service is fine. I love the decor, but... I hate that if I go with friends, paying is a horrible pain. If you and your friends only have credit/debit cards, then someone is picking up the tab. They refuse to split payments, and refuse to split checks. Unless I'm going with someone that has cash, or I'm treating them/they're treating me, I don't really want to go.
Papermoon is wonderfully fun, I love the quirky decor. The food's good too; I've never had a thing I didn't like. I think the prices are reasonable, certainly comparable to other area restaurants. Sometimes the service can be a bit slow, other times it's surprisingly quick.
Paper Moon is a funky, eclectic place that serves simply diner fare. The draw here is the 'art school grad on steroids' decoration of the entire restaurant, inside and out. You will either love the playful use of old toys, dolls, mannequins, and memorabilia, or you will think that you were dropped into a 'Chuckies' horror movie. I loved this unique atmosphere that can't be found elsewhere. On a Saturday afternoon we only had to wait a few minutes to be seated even though the place appeared full. The food we had was good , consisting of eggs Benedict, a cheese burger, and a wrap, with fries and sides. The prices were reasonable. The service was acceptable, but inconsistent. Everyone does everything there. Apparently, if you need someone, just grab the next server the passes by. Definitely worth a trip and a great place for late night munchies. I'll be back.
My first impression was that the place and staff wasnt very clean looking. I was PRAYING that this server washed her hands after she took the trash out through the front door. The decor is definately irratating.
The service we recieved was awful. Everytime we would ask for something, the server would say: I'll be with you in a minute as she went off to do something else.
The food wasn't bad, I actually enjoyed my meal. Most items on the menu were reasonably priced.
I do not believe I would return, the cleanliness scares me. If I did, it would be a LATE night stop.
