Every once in a while a D.M.V (DC. central MD and northern VA) native travels over to the dark side otherwise known as Baltimore. Baltimore gets a bad rep over on this side of town but the truth is , there are several neighborhoods in Baltimore that are great for day trips , good eats and a little culture and a lot of bar hopping. And I don’t just mean the harbor. Im talking Canton, Fells Point and today specifically Federal. Hill.
Over the weekend we checked out Spoons Cafe, in historic Fed Hill. Its a quaint coffee bar with a pretty tasty brunch menu.
Federal Hill contains a phalanx of bars and restaurants, the newly renovated Cross Street Market, funky, locally owned shops and is located within walking distance of the Inner Harbor and downtown.
The dining room is not too over crowded and the wait-staff is super friendly and personable. Our waitress grabbed a chair and sat down with us to take our order. Not to mention she was funny and a self proclaimed bacon connoisseur. My feeling is that with their menu , made up of your bunch staple foods with a sweet or savory twist, you cant go wrong with any choice. To name a few…
- Cheesecake stuffed french toast
- Egg-in-hole toast aptly named “Raven’s Nest” Go Ravens!!
- Break-ing-fast Burrito stuffed with scrambled eggs, black bean chili, spinach, cheddar, salsa verde, sour cream potatoes and chorizo
- Fried chicken biscuit with honey butter
- Crunchy french toast dipped in corn flakes with choice of buttery rum sauce or maple pecan syrup
Whatever you get make sure you have a little dessert before your entree and enjoy some O-NUTS: Baltimore-style cinnamon beignets topped with powdered sugar
