There's been an upscale revamping and the pizzas have been gussied up. The immense burgers, though, are still here.
This bright, bustling storefront seems to do a healthy lunch trade from local offices, and it's easy to see why: a solid sampling of soups, salads, and sandwiches, all executed a cut above the usual noontime fare. Dinner is takeout only.
Can't miss this purple-painted house beside Falls Road, nor would you want to miss the selection of artful sweet and savory stuff turned out of its ovens.
"Nestled in the heart of Mt. Washington’s business district Chiyo offers a wide array of delicious sushi combinations, 100 rolls to choose. From tempura to teriyaki, our lunch and dinner entrees cater to those who enjoy traditional Japanese cuisine."
The tables are wobbly and the specials are hit-or-miss (yes on lasagna, no on quiche), but there's wireless internet and the salads and baked goods are always terrific. Make a small meal of the Caesar salad and a big chocolate-chip cookie at this cozy Roland Park coffeehouse and be very happy. The sandwiches and wraps are consistently good if not standouts. Open early for breakfast, but decline adding egg or sausage to your bagel. Do get a muffin or a scone. Better yet, go on Sunday for brunch featuring very nice omelets and memorable home fries.
A recent renovation has brought with it a major menu overhaul. The Tex-Mex cuisine has been replaced by respectful but innovative takes on pan-Latino food by a talented chef. Witness a flight of ceviche demonstrating indigenous styles of Honduras, Ecuador, and Veracruz. A dusky mole flatters juicy pan-seared chicken breast.
Terrific service and a voluminious menu make Miss Shirley's Cafe the best new spot around to grab breakfast. Eggs abound - poached, in omeletes, in sandwiches - but don't miss gourmet takes on homey specialties like benne seed chicken 'n' waffles or marscapone grits.
Classic French bistro meets weeknight Baltimore. The menu changes seasonally, but some dishes are perrenial. Steak frites, the legendary Paris bar snack, here with fork-tender beef and garlicky fries. The confit de canard and terrine de foie gras are too rich to eat every day, but surely once a week can't hurt. The small but well-considered list of wines by the glass allows diners to savor some vintages that might otherwise be unaffordable by the bottle.
Almost every neighborhood in Baltimore has a joint that delievers pizza and other Italian staples and deli faves. Roland Park being Roland Park, its version offers relatively good gourmet renditions and a pleasant eat-in experience.
"A casual neighborhood cafe where you can relax and savor simple delicious food in a warm, inviting setting. Breakfast is served all day and features fluffy omelets, chocolate chip pancakes, challah french toast, prosciutto and cheese grits, bagels and more. Lunch features homemade soups, fresh salads, hearty sandwiches, and burgers with homemade hand-cut fries. Dinner is served three nights a week – Thursday, Friday and Saturday – and features a variety of changing appetizers (crab & roasted corn salad, fried oysters, a trio of sliders, pesto crab dip) and entrees (lemon-herb roasted chicken, grilled veal chop, Maryland-style crab cakes, spaghetti and meatballs) as well as a selection of favorites from our day menu. Check out the website for the most current dinner offerings. Cafe also offers a full bar, weekend brunch specials and free Wifi. Seasonal outdoor garden dining available."
