From the outside, this place has potential. A quaint early 1900's house remade into a breakfast diner. I thought this could be some good eats. WRONG! We came here as an alternative to Gravy (in NoPo) being that we were out of time. Gravy had an hour wait so we went to moonshadow on our way back to S.E. There was no wait or line in front of us when we arrived. When were seated, the room was at a 20 degree slant to the point the plastic cover over table along w/ silverware, condiments ect. were sliding off. The waitress seemed to be nice but not very receptive. When our food arrived, it was ehh...ok looking but our potatoes were cold, coffee was cold. We wanted to get through this thinking it could brighten up. The waitress never checked back with us for coffee refills, to see how were were doing or if everything was ok. I ordered the spinach omelet plus mushrooms. The spinach was canned and didnt look very attractive not to mention didnt taste much better. Lisa had the eggs benedict added with spinach and onions which cost extra. Her english muffin was hard as a rock and there was no hollandaise draped over the top. She also had the potatoes on the side which were cold. When we were ready to go, I went to the bathroom--Nightmare!! The walls leading to the bathroom needed to be scrubbed or repainted. The bathroom was the same. Didnt look mopped or wiped down for a while. I got back to the table and still no waitress. Lisa went to the front to pay. This again took a while. I noticed a big puddle of water with ice on the floor by another couple that hadnt been attended to. Our tab was 28 bucks this included 2 coffees, 2 plates and a coffee cake which we barely touched. OMG
Pros: On Hawthorne
Cons: Food not good, bad service. Might need a visit from health inspector.
