Busy lunch counter in the middle of the Block, a favorite of video store and dance club employees.
Arguably downtown's most popular walk-up lunch spot. The perfect falafel pita, outfitted with two--count 'em--chickpea fritters sustains many thankful vegetarians. Others begin there and move on to the meat pitas, the melty grilled panini, the generous rotisserie chicken, and fresh salads. The only discouraging words can be uttered about the prices, which are a dollar more than you'd like to spend on what is basically street food, even really good street food. The constantly filled outdoor tables offer unparalleled perches for watching people dressed in business attire.
Inner Harbor location of local chain Edo Sushi. Classic and inventive sushi, Japanese entrées and appetizers with modern, American twists.
The Main branch of the Enoch Pratt free libraries is a great library right in downtown Baltimore, it also happens to be the State Library Resource Center. Many special events are scheduled every month from film to author readings and their web site is an excellent way to keep up to date.
There are many, many, many places to get a crab cake in Baltimore, but only one Faidley's. It's hardly the most glamorous place to dine on divinely lumpy, golden cakes, but it's certainly one of the most democratic--packed along Lexington Market's counters you'll be cheek by plastic fork with downtown suits, safety orange vest-wearing road-crew guys, and tourists in search of a real-deal local delicacy. Simple is best here: Splurge on the all-lump crab cake and take it unadorned, its craggy-surfaced homeliness bespeaking the large chunks of back fin inside. Break apart the generously sized patty with said plastic fork and breath the salty, buttery Old Bay scent of perfection. Pile onto a saltine cracker (optional) and enjoy.
Features a buffet.

Lexington Market carry-out stall seves hefty sandwiches to the lunchtime crowd. Try the Thanksgiving sandwich. Forget the diet.
The northern Indian food is just fine, but the Nepalese dishes, especially the chicken momo (big, fluffy dumplings) and the sukait, a cured lamb appetizer, are fascinating and delicious.
Cypriana Café proprietor Maria Kaimakis sells three sandwiches from a food cart at the corner of Redwood and Light streets. There's pit beef, grilled chicken, and pit lamb.
This small eatery decorated in a soothing celadon undersea motif serves straight-up versions of noodle dishes from Korea, Japan, Vietnam, and beyond--no fusion faux pho here, just the real thing done very well. The newer downtown location, in the Munsey Building, is dramatic and Zenic--the thought of having the spicy tuna tartare in halved avocado is incentive for showing up for work.
One of the hidden treasures of Baltimore, this Seton Hill Italian-goods store is both deli and grocery. The deli menu includes a delicious prosciutto, mozzarella, and pesto sandwich, as well as a handful of other equally satisfying house sandwiches. In addition to the deli, they sell an assortment of Italian groceries at affordable prices so you can re-create the Trinacria experience in your own home. Watch out for those cookies displayed behind the counter; you won't be able to stop at a dozen.
Dining at Werner's is like being in a one-sided relationship. The often-brusque staff does not seem to care in the least what you think of them. No matter how you make with the smiling eye contact or amusing chitchat, they simply are not impressed. Don't take it personally--it's not you, really it's not. It's merely standard operating procedure at this venerable downtown breakfast and lunch spot, where the focus is on simple home-cooked food served fast and cheap. Save the smile for the cashier.
