Welcome to Moon Winks!

The Moon Winks you know and love has grown into Moon Winks Cafe and Moon Winks Tavern

Moon Winks was inspired by the love story of founder Roberta Tankanow’s parents and Andy Tankanow’s grandparents, Muriel and Oscar. They met at a restaurant in upstate New York called MoonWinks, and dated briefly before WWII began and Oscar left to fight. Despite the distance, he wrote to Muriel every day from foxholes in Europe. After the war ended, Oscar returned home, married his true love, started a family, and the rest is Moon Winks History.
