Baltimore’s Best Brunch
I used to be the Queen of Brunch. Every Sunday my friends and I would set out for brunch so discuss our fun nights and catch up on life. With traveling so much, I’ve missed my weekly brunches so I’ve made it my mission to get back out there and brunch. These are a few of my favorite spots and my picks for Baltimore’s Best Brunch.
Warning: if you are hungry, stop reading this now!
1) Blue Moon and Blue Moon Too
Blue Moon has been on every food network show it seems because it is a dive with absolutely delicious breakfast foods. Unfortunately the original Blue Moon is tiny and the waits are long, come early or don’t come at all.
Luckily,another location just opened up. Blue Moon Too is much bigger so the wait times are slightly more manageable. My favorite thing to order at Blue Moon and Blue Moon Too is the Sweet Baby Jesus. Crab, tomato, eggs (your style), and hash browns topped with hollandaise sauce. It tastes way better than it looks.
If I’m not that hungry I’ll order the veggie scramble with a biscuit (I love biscuits!) or their famous Captain Crunch French Toast. This is the best French toast ever.
2) Cava Mezze
Cava Mezze is a fairly new spot in Harbor East where you can order all-you-can-eat tapas style breakfast for $30 with 1 cent mimosas. My friends and I went here a few weeks ago for a boozy brunch. It gets rowdy here but the food was superb and the mimosas strong. We were so full when we left because the banana fritters we sooooo good that we just kept ordering more.
I will be back here again for sure!
3) Miss Shirley’s
Miss Shirley’s is another Baltimore favorite that has been on every Food Network show. Their food is huge, amazing, and a little different. My go-to is the chicken and waffles with pimento butter. Little touches of Southern cooking surround the menu and the biscuits are mag.
4) Baltimore Farmer’s Market
The Baltimore Farmer’s Market is my favorite Sunday morning activity. After stocking up on fresh produce, local meats and cheeses, and fresh Baltimore goods, I wander around to find my breakfast.
There are falafel wraps, an omelets stand, mushroom dishes from the mushroom stand, Indian, Thai, pizza, Gary’s Turkey Burgers, Ruben’s crepes, Mexican, and my favorite: Blacksauce Kitchen biscuit sandwiches. Whatever you feel like, whatever crazy diet plan you may be on, you can always find something to eat at the Baltimore Farmer’s Market.

A lot of my summer weekends I’m at the beach but my summer list of fun in Baltimore includes a lot of brunching around the city.
