What: The Nickel Taphouse
Where: 1604 Kelly Ave, Baltimore, MD
For all of your foodie Friday lovers out there I have a delicious seafood option for you! The Nickel Taphouse located near Mount Washington is going to be your go to place for oysters and the like! Whether you are stopping in for brunch or for a nice sit down dinner you will not be disappointed!
If you are more a morning person (but not really because its brunch) there are plenty of options for you, you can go with the not-so-classic classic brunch featuring Eggs in Hell which includes three eggs, tomato sauce, parmesan, olives, crostini and for some spice in your life Jalapenos.
For dinner I would recommend the iced oysters… wouldn’t mind some right now actually! These are delicious along side a chopped salad!
Bottom line—head to The Nickel Taphouse.

What: Red Star Bar & Grill
Where: 906 South Wolfe Street
Head down to Fells Point to cozy up in this warm space for a great meal!
When in Baltimore, start your meal off by scooping a grilled pita into a hearty bowl of Red Star’s crab dip! Or keep it simple with an appetizing Wisconsin Cheese Plate, orrr there are plenty of other options! Enjoy a Mushroom Pizza with caramelized mushrooms and onions, or grab hold of a scrumptious Bistro Steak Sandwich, made with grilled, coffee marinated beef along side avocados! I think though when in a pub, you should do a classic Fish n’ Chips, you just cannot go wrong with beer-battered Cod and tar tar sauce. You just can’t.

When: Sunday – Saturday 7am to 5pm
Well Baltimore, looks like we are about to get some serious weather. #snowmaggedon2016
In times of snowy situations don’t you like to snuggle up with an infinity scarf in a warm coffee shop drinking a toasty beverage out of crisp white mug? Yes, yes you do. So, head to Café Latte Da for some winter warmth. Located in Fells Point it holds all the charm and quirk you would expect.
They make a delicious iced coffee using coffee ice cubes… Um awesome… Never worry about a diluted drink again. For those craving a sandwich or pastry they have got you covered with a variety of appetizing options! Café Latte Da roasts their own coffee from flavors like Italian–the Cane Corso blend, to Moka Java–the English Bulldog. You may have noticed those are both dogs and that would be because this coffee shop really supports Baltimore locals like the Baltimore Humane Society. They also showcase a new local artist every month and sell their artwork, ensuring all profits go to them!

Barcocinaaaaa, everyone needs to get down to Fells Point to enjoy some delicious, amazing, and tantalizing modern Mexican cuisine! I had the pleasure of dining in for a sunny brunch. Seriously though, so sunny. The windows surrounding the restaurant give you a wonderful view of the harbor and Fells Point, while enjoying a beautiful sun-shining day.
To accompany this view, there are savory brunch options. I had the hash brown tacos… Two taco shells made out of hash browns with hollandaise sauce…amazing. My friends had breakfast enchiladas and jalapeno corn bread, just too too good.
Come too late for brunch well then grab some lunch, grab some dinna. Dive into The Reuben or the Crab Guacamole! Yum Yum.

I am no stranger to Grano Pasta Bar, in fact, I love the pasta bar. Its intimate setting is a great place for you to get your favorite pasta with your best friends. At Grano, you pick your favorite pasta and favorite sauce and whatever else suits your fancy. I am personally the biggest fan of Gnocchi with Vodka Sauce, simple I know, but absolutely delicious! Their vodka sauce is to die for! They have plenty of options from farfalle to penne and all the sauces your heart desires. Along with bread and many other options, maybe a cannoli or three after dinner? Then you are set for a great evening with great food! Don’t have time to sit down? That’s cool just do take-out, I promise it is just as good!

While out and about in Mt. Vernon one must visit Dooby’s Café. I would be confident in describing it as a hipster-modern destination with great food and drinks. The inside is inviting with a modern design and rustic tables. Dooby’s Café serves absolutely delicious food! Get a filling Steak & Egg Sandwich, made with cheddar, gochujang aioli, and caramelized onions. Or, go big with the Homestyle Breakfast, featuring two over-easy eggs, chicken sausage, bacon, hash and toast. They also serve sandwiches like the Korean BBQ Cheesesteak, and yummy noodles. After stuffing your face with Dooby’s delicious entrees, dive into their Damn Good Pie, consisting of Brûléed buttermilk tart with a chocolate cookie crumble crust! Two please! They also offer vegetarian, vegan, and gluten free options!

What: Artifact Coffee
Where: 1500 Union Avenue, Baltimore
When: Monday-Tuesday 7am-5pm, Wednesday-Friday 7am-7pm, Saturday-Sunday 8am-7pm
The other day I woke up early and headed on over to Artifact Coffee before class. I am in love. In love with the atmosphere the food and the deliciously soothing tea that helped cure a sore throat! I sat down at a rustic table while the waiter brought me a carafe of water and placed down my lemon-green tea infuser with a cute blue tea cup and plate. I then scarfed down a breakfast sandwich, amazing, it was crunchy yet soft yet cheesy, ugh, everything you want in a sausage breakfast sandwich.
