About Us


Under the Moon Cafe was born in 2006 from the desire of Estela Buontempo Orosco and Santiago Orosco to create a restaurant with a warm, welcoming atmosphere that offers home cooked style meals and the best desserts in Bordentown.

The mother and son duo bring the closeness you feel when gathered around the table with friends and family and blend it with a truly unique dining experience. The Orosco family, originating from Buenos Aires, Argentina brought the traditions, flavors and essence of family dining with them, to the United States, in 1991.

Generations of Orosco and Buontempo family recipes remain the cornerstone of the menus that have been served to countless friends and family of Under The Moon Cafe. Everything at Under The Moon Cafe is constructed lovingly, from the distinctive ambiance to Santiago’s famous desserts, made on location.

Come join us for lunch, dinner or a special event at Under The Moon Cafe for heavenly cuisine, infused with family traditions. We have a seat waiting for you at our table.


We are BYOB! Cheers.
