What: Grano Pasta Bar
Where: 1031 W 36th St., Baltimore
When: Monday-Saturday 11:30am – 10pm, Sundays 12pm – 9pm
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!

When:Mon-Fri 7am-10pm, Sat 8am-10pm, Sun 8am-5pm
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

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.

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! Govanstowne has had roots since 1783–needless to say it has a wealth of history and character. The farmers market has become a great way for the community of Govanstowne to come together. 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!
