Sarah Simington of Blue Moon Cafe fame is well-known for her Sweet Baby Jesus and Cap-n-Crunch French Toast dishes. She’s been serving both from her Fell’s Point, Maryland location for the last 19 years. When she decided to expand into Federal Hill with her new location at 1024 Light St, Blue Moon Cafe Too, breakfast lovers everywhere cheered with anticipation.
Before opening her doors however, Simington focused on creating a unique design atmosphere for her patrons. In the same way she oversees and perfects every food item that leaves her kitchen, she used that same attention to detail in her new 90’s-style coffeehouse and dining establishment.
When it came to flooring, she chose concrete epoxy floors by O & E Concrete Design.
