What: Golden West Cafe Take-Out Window
Where: W 36th Street, Hampden
When: Sun-Thurs. 7am-12am, Friday-Sat. 7am-2am
I have always been a faithful to Golden West Cafe and their Sunday morning brunch. This past weekend at HampdenFest, I finally got the chance to experience the new take-out window. And, in the spirit of a true toddler I had waffles with a big fluffy dollop of whip cream and a big glass of chocolate milk (admittedly an odd choice for a hot saturday morning). It. Was. Awesome. Delicious and hardly nutritious–the perfect breakfast. The Take-Out window’s hours are amazing, 7am-2am on Fridays and Saturdays, perfect those late nights of too much…studying and work…and you really just want a huge platter of nachos. (more…)

What: One World Café
Where: 100 W University Pkwy, Baltimore
Need a break from Starbucks? Same. That is why I went to One world Cafe! They have absolutely delicious baked good and their drinks are refreshing. I got a classic double chocolate chip muffin…amazing. They do not stop at baked goods though, sit down and enjoy a meal! One World makes its a very important part of their business to insure vegan and vegetarian oriented foods. They make this their mission to focus on this as a major part of their cafe. Stop by, get a coffee or ice tea with a, highly recommended, double chocolate chip muffin. You can sit inside in the cozy atmosphere and enjoy the a nice coffee house ambiance or sit onside while we still enjoy this beautiful weather! And for those night owls, One World Café is open until 2am! One World Café

I am always craving fresh fruit, a nice strawberry and some raspberries — I cannot live without raspberries. So I’ll be stopping by the Govanstowne farmer market and you should too!

Come join in on the community fun, and grab some fresh veggies and fruit while the warm weather lasts. Skip the V8 and go for the real thing!

If you’re feeling that way right now, drop everything, and sign up for Soup & Serenity! The Kadampa Meditation Center holds a half an hour guided meditation class every Wednesday, followed by homemade soup, salad, and bread, served in the World Peace Café. It will give you a midweek break that will make the next couple of work days seem much less frustrating, and you’ll learn how to relax your mind when it just wants to keep running!
