The Blue Moose Café at the corner of Aikens and 1st street in Eagle serves up hearty salads and sandwiches. A blue moose “mat” painted into the concrete and whiskey barrel planters filled with exploding color welcome you up the steps of this quaint neighborhood café. Bright blue and lime umbrellas line the sidewalk dining area along the entranceway; one of several indoor and outdoor seating choices available.

There’s quite an array of unique salads, sandwiches, and wraps on the menu but they are known for their signature Blue Moose Maytag salad of romaine, dried cranberries, apples and chunks of blue cheese. Another popular item is the California Spa salad of roasted chicken, pears, feta or gorgonzola cheese, candied pecans, and pear vinaigrette. The salad dressings are all home made and the bread, incredible!

At the suggestion of our friendly server we ordered a half size specialty salad with chicken and the tuna salad sandwich. Even at half the usual size the salad was still enormous. Large cubes of chicken adorned the crisp romaine and two slices of accompanying buttered thick baguette bread were just divine! The albacore tuna and Granny Smith apple slices were piled several inches high onto grilled cranberry orange bread; an unusual but tasty flavor combination that really worked. Sandwiches come with a side of pasta salad or potato chips. Our pasta salad was loaded with fresh tomatoes, cucumber chunks, sliced olives and red onions. The food was served on tropical patterned plates in festive lime, turquoise and hot pink colors.

 

Beverage choices are far too numerous to mention with delights from everything of a Sunkist float to green teas to several varieties of organic sodas and fizzy drinks. There’s beer and wine, too! If you like peach try the organic red peach lightly carbonated soda. It’s delicious. And don’t forget a moose bar (big brownie square).

Be sure to visit between the hours of 11-3 Monday through Saturday. You can tantalize your taste buds with this menu at www.thebluemoosecafe.net/menu.html

(Note: parking can be tight in this residential area. Try for a parking spot on 1st street rather than Aikens.)
