Really enjoyed the atmosphere of this restaurant! There were a lot of locals, which was a good indicator! I watched the chef enter into the kitchen area and wash his hands first thing, which made me feel really good! The breakfast was delicious and quickly prepared. The coffee kept coming and it was overall a really great dining experience!

This breakfast was the perfect ending to a wonderful trip. The waffles were thin, crispy and delicious. We also ordered biscuits which were also spot. Great service, coffee always topped off. As we looked around the room at plates as they arrived at neighboring tables everything looked amazing. Definitely a place you could come to and work your way through... More

This coffee shop is tucked away on a side street in Fed Hill. Anticipation was high as it was voted best breakfast and brunch in South Baltimore. The coffee was good and served beautifully, but the food was so so. Parmesan spinach omelette was maybe a poor choice, at $17.50 it was certainly expensive and overly greasy. The 3 grain... More

Super friendly and outstanding quality breakfast. So good we went both Saturday and Sunday morning. We did not have to wait Sunday as arrived shortly after 9. When we... More

Came here twice for brunch whilst in Baltimore for a week! They were very busy both times and had to wait 20-30 minuets to get in, I'm not sure if you can book but I would reccomend it or get there early! I had the risotto Benedict which had amazing fried risotto cakes under the eggs! It was the best... More

This place is awesome! We have had breakfast here a dozen times. We keep thinking it's not as good as remember and it wows us every time. I especially love the oysters and grits. Amazing. But the eggs and meat dishes are fabulous, too. Coffee excellent. And service is out of this world. We live in New York with a... More

We tried Spoons for breakfast and had the fried oysters on cheese grits. It was absolutely delicious! The coffee was superb and the staff was efficient as well as friendly.

Yum, yum, yum.....We spent 2 nights in the Federal Hill area within walking distance to Camden Yards and the Inner Harbor. My wife and I usually "split our plates".
