We had an incredible brunch experience at the Papermoon Diner. From the minute we parked, it was a feast for the eyes. The unique artwork and decorating was vintage, fun and reminded me of much of my childhood. I enjoyed looking around and appreciating all the hard work put into the decor. The menu choices were vast and it was... More

My family has been eating at the Paper Moon since it first opened many years ago. You can't miss the small diner-resturant with its painted mannequins and funk art decor filling the diner's interior and extending across the front and side of the outside of the building. The food is uniformly good with many diner staples such as all day... More

I went to Papermoon Diner for the second time and it was good as the last. The good is the food is always served hot. If you go on looks along you are missing out. There are some strange​ exhibits but the food is awesome. My favorite is the cranberry melt and onion rings. For a unique experience try the... More

That is what make the place different. Food is good, service is too. Just bring at least $25 per person, especially if you would like one of there good ole... More

So this place is a must see! Crazy décor...if you were ever a kid (lol), then you're sure to find some pieces of your childhood left behind here. But kitchy is not enough.....the FOOD was absolutely fabulous. We went for breakfast and the portions were grand and the flavor combos were fabulous!

What a fun place! The pictures say it all. The burger was great, along with the fries. They do have a lot of rules that are a little strange. Just read them inside the menu :)

I've had a few of the omelettes here, and I'm working my way through the menu. Yesterday, a Southwestern omelette. corn salsa, avocado, tomato, some cheese, and a few other things. Terrific. Great service, with prompt coffee refills. Yum

I have so we love this place. I go here every time I come home to visit my parents. I grew up around Baltimore so I've been going there for years. They have a very unique menu with creative options. Vegetarians and vegans are very welcome there. The service can be very slow and at times there are weights but... More

Restaurant with the funky decor and rules. You must order at least $12 per person. Split plates extra $3 charge. Split milkshakes $2 extra. Waiters are funky too. They all share the work and the tips. They all look like artists. They aren't the most charming kind and I like the minimum interaction. - Omelet with salmon was light and... More
