''If we could give 10 stars to the Historic Blue Moon we would. Almost certainly this is the
best hotel, or at least our favourite, that we have ever stayed at. The location, in the
Lower East Side, is unbeatable for anyone who wants to stay in Manhattan but wants to
avoid the overly touristy Midtown scene. Everyone on the staff was friendly and helpful,
with the hotel being small enough that everything felt like it had a really personal touch.
A definite gem and a bargain for what we paid. The next time
we're in New York, the Historic Blue Moon will be at the top of our list of places to
stay.'' - Blayne, St. Catherine's, Canada

This cafe has been a long awaited sweet dream.  Initially, we intended to do a restaurant based on family recipes, and having created a post pandemic resurgence, we noted our historic Jewish community was bereft of any sort of eatery.  I have endeavored every effort to implement my concept of Cafe, Bakery, Wine Bar (Enoteca) and Trattoria Family Restaurant.  We started a soft opening serving a menu reflecting the warmth and artistry of the Historic Blue Moon Hotel itself.  We feature 2 Soups made daily, Salads with House Dressings, 5 Variations of Paninis made with Mozzarella made on the premises, Artisanal Pizza made with House Sauce and Mozzarella, White and Whole Wheat Lasagna, Eggplant Parmigiana, Eggplant Rollatini Stuffed with Ricotta and Topped with Mozzarella, Broccoli Rabe Frittata made with Potatoes, Garlic and Eggs.  We sell Full Pans of Pizza, Lasagna, Eggplant Parmigiana and Rollatini at Family Minded Prices and Variations.  Our Bakery proudly presents the Biscotti Di Tutti Biscotti, Authentic Tuscan Italian Cheesecake made with Ricotta, accented with Lemon, Lime, Orange Zest and Juice.  Chocolate Lovers can indulge in our Signature Chocolate Cupcake or Fudgy Crinkle Cookie.  The Sweet Dreams Cafe and Bakery features a very expansive Italian Menu.


Coming Soon: Handmade Pasta and Ravioli.  We rely on Family Recipes in our Immaculate Kitchen, using only the finest healthy and wholesome ingredients, as it is our intention to bake solely with Olive Oil for our baked goods offering our patrons a unique, healthy and satisfying experience, preserving history and fine food closer than Portofino and without Preservatives.
