Something Different

By: Audrie Kuntz

From the fresh coffee to the live entertainment, the Blue Moose Cafe is sure to please even the faintest of hearts. They have so much to offer while customers get to experience an array of local tastes, current music and eclectic art.

It’s not your everyday cafe. It is an open and welcoming atmosphere that is a self-proclaimed diverse community and you can surely see this after just one step in the door.

The music scene at the cafe is just one of many strong points at this hot spot coffee joint. It hosts open mic nights and even has live music weekly from little named bands to the big ones

The extensive menu that offers organic and natural options allows the customers to come in and try something new or get their “usual” eats. “I love going here in the middle of the day between classes because the ambiance is unlike any other in town,” said senior, Shaleah Ingram. “It really is the closest to a hippie-type-feel and that makes it feel a little bit like an escape.”

For anyone passing through, they even have something in store for the art lovers. Each month, they have monthly art exhibits and openings where art enthusiasts can come join, walk around and take in all the local art that is on display.

“It’s a great trendy and relaxed place where you can come to get work done, enjoy you’re cafe food and drink or go at night to listen to one of the many featured bands here,” WVU student, Kalea Gunderson added.

Workers of the cafe give it a good word when they say it is a intellectual spot that creates a very unique and pleasing experience that surely seems like a spot to check out if you haven’t already.

  1. I’ve heard some cool things about Blue Moose Cafe and have heard that it has a very bohemian feel to it, which is evident from their menu, performances and their art work that is put on display. Blue Moose seems like a cool spot to hangout with friends and get some homework done, while also listening to some music or viewing the artwork. That’s one of the aspects that makes Blue Moose unique. Individuals can get something organic off of their menu and walk around and see the artwork. I believe they also have an internet cafe that individuals can use, giving the place somewhat of a throwback feel. I am always looking for a cool new cafe to try, and Blue moose is definitely on my list of cafes to try for sure!


  2. I’m really glad you chose to focus on Blue Moose! The unique combination of funky food and art culture makes this place such an iconic Morgantown spot. I really wish you would have mentioned something about the poetry slams they host throughout the year. I know they host an annual poetry contest in honor of a local poet who passed away and often host poetry slam contents periodically throughout the year. Great spotlight!
