The Moose Café is a Southern Style family restaurant that uses fresh local ingredients to serve country favorites.

 With both locations on the grounds of NC State Farmers Market, we have convenient access to shop for local ingredients right out our back door.  In addition to our produce we put the “scratch” in scratch made with our favorite dishes like Mac & Cheese, Chicken & Dumplings, Grandma’s Meatloaf, and Hand Peeled Mash Potatoes & Gravy. The locals come for our heaping portions, friendly service, and buttermilk soaked fried chicken. If you are visiting for the first time you might know us for our giant Cathead Biscuits and Apple Butter, featured in Southern Living, that arrive at your table as you sit down, or our famous homemade meatloaf highlighted in Our State Magazine.  

The Moose Café is the true definition of Family owned.

 It started over 25 years ago to showcase the Fresh Ingredients that NC offers.  Our food is scratch made using only original recipes that take no shortcuts to feature the best home-cooking NC has to offer.  Enjoy a taste of the best Southern Comfort Food in a homey and comfortable atmosphere!

Whether you’re passing through, born and raised, or just plain hungry - the Moose Café has you covered 7 days a week for breakfast, lunch, & dinner as North Carolina’s Farmers Market Restaurant!
