Yellow Moon Cafe’ is For Sale!
This is a wonderful opportunity to purchase a well-established restaurant and music venue!

The Yellow Moon Cafe’ is conveniently located in the heart of the Shawnee Hills Wine Trail, in the beautiful downtown area of the Village of Cobden, IL. The location offers both vehicular and pedestrian traffic, in a built-out market. Since we have been opened, we have grown an exceptional customer base--with a very diversified clientele and geographical draw, in an area with stable demographics.

The YMC has great potential with major market generators--National forests, wineries, two universities(SIU and SE Missouri) each approximately 20-30 miles away --one to the North of Cobden and one to the South in Cape Girardeau, MO. Since opening the Yellow Moon Cafe in 2009, it has been our philosophy and mission to generate, support, and maintain relationships with many local businesses, area cabins, bed and breakfasts, wineries, breweries, farmers, artisans, musicians, orchards, and more.

We are founding members, and currently ongoing supporters of the Cobden Community and Business Association. Our stage venue continues to be a platform where we host International, National, & State musicians, as well as local favorites. Rent/lease is affordable. 
In the years to come, we envision continued growth potential for the Yellow Moon Cafe', based on the foundation we have created and the relationships that we have mindfully cultivated and embraced, both in business and in our community.
We are forever grateful for our customers, supporters, and friends during the last nearly 10 years of business. It is our hope that we will be able to find someone(s) that will continue to have the pleasure of serving our amazing customers,support our local businesses, and purveyors.
