The food is alright, great place to try out board games from the attached store. This place is usually pretty packed, so expect a wait before you get to nerd out.

Pretty amazing. The cafe part is atmospheric. There was a wait for a table, but we put our name on the list then browsed the store and picked out a game. Just be aware you may not get a table right away. We sat outdoors in an enclosed area with a heat lamp above us to stay warm. The table was bench style, with a design burned into the surface. We borrowed a game from their free library, and the guy at the counter explained how to play it and helped us choose. Rating: friendly and knowledgeable. The store is expansive and well-organized. It's like the Barnes & Noble of board games. Also, Mox is open really late so you can plan a game night any day.

Interesting place. I went here for coffee and ended up spilling it all over myself. They were very helpful and didn't judge.

A great place to relax for a point and a board game. Huge selection for the asking.

Great place to try new games and kill a few hours with friends. Everyone is super knowledgable and friendly - one of my favorite spots in Ballard!

The original location; not as roomy nor does it have the new car smell of the Bellevue location, but still a great spot for small gatherings or dinner/games with a few friends. Rooms in the back available for rent.

Board game night at Cafe Mox, let me summarize it: First question is what board games do you want to play: If you think you are going to be playing monopoly, life, risk or battleship you are mistaken.Instead this place is a packed house of people playing games that would be hardly considered mainstream. But of course that is the charm of this place.Alternative game and alternative people. Love it. Great for people watching in addition to playing games. It's a huge space, in a great location in downtown Ballard. Like all other spots in Ballard parking can be somewhat of a challenge but that is to be expected. They do sell beer either in the glass or b y the pitcher. The booths are large and comfortable and great for playing games for hours on end. The space is huge. I mean really really big for Ballard area. They sell beer by the pitcher. Once you are done playing games, if you want to go to a more traditional bar or lounge the Shelter Lounge is just across the street.
