So about a month or so ago I took a road trip to South Carolina with Bae to visit his daughter. I remember when he first mentioned it, he wanted us to fly but I quickly convinced him that a road trip would be better. “It’ll give us some time to bond,” “we’ll save money” etc. But little did he know the real reason I wanted to drive is because I had restaurants that I’ve been wanting to try and here was my opportunity to check some off my list. Lol. Well maybe he did know. But nonetheless I got my way! 
Since we had to drive through Maryland, I knew our first stop would be Blue Moon Cafe. I saw this restaurant on an episode of Diners, Drive Ins and Dives a few years ago and I remember thinking “I’ve got to try this place.” Then one of my IG friends went when she visited B-More and couldn’t contain herself. After doing a quick hashtag search I was literally drooling over every pic posted! I couldn’t wait! 


We got to Blue Moon around 8:45am on a Saturday and surprisingly were seated immediately. Blue Moon is small; probably 10 tables at best and has a nice eclectic and homey atmosphere. I instantly felt good in the space. 

There really wasn’t a need for us to look at the menu because we’d already decided we would go with the most popular entrees! And we soon learned why they were favs. 

As soon as you take your first bite of the “Sweet Baby Jesus” that’s exactly what you will say. This layered dish of hash browns , eggs (any way you like them), tomatoes, crabmeat, cheese and topped with hollandaise sauce is everything your heart desires. I’m not a huge fan of hollandaise so I got mines on the side. But baby let me just tell you that this dish definitely stands up to the hype. So rich and tasty. The different textures of food just feels like a party in your mouth. I had to slow down to savor each bite because it was so good! The dish is pretty pricey for breakfast ($20) but it’s a huge portion (that I’m not ashamed to say I ate every last drop) and considering the big chunks of lump crab meat you get; it’s totally worth it. 


My boyfriend got the Cap’n Crunch French Toast. Now this is the dish that was featured on triple D and I completely understand why! AH-MAZING! When I tasted it, I wanted to eat all of his dish and mines too. 

Now I don’t know whose idea it was to put Cap’n Crunch on French toast but thank god they did.  You get two pieces of Texas toast that’s dipped and rolled in a special blend of captain crunch and I don’t know what else. It’s topped with whipped cream and fresh fruit including apples, bananas, blueberrie and strawberries. This dish has the perfect balance of crunchy and sweet. In fact you really don’t need any syrup. My boyfriend said it was hands down the best version of French toast he’s ever eaten. And although I only had a bite, I’d have to agree. 

You already know I can’t wait to head back! The food was amazing, service was great too. Again, it is pricey. Our damage was $48; pretty high for breakfast. But who cares when the food is just that damn good.

Eat Fab xo,

Dana
