When: 7:30-5am Everyday

Need some good food at 3am? Then head over to Sip & Bite for some great food to end your night. Open almost 24 hours, this diner offers up every food you could ever want whenever you want. Featured as a Best of Baltimore and on Diners Drive-ins and Dives, don’t just take my word on how great Sip & Bite is, take Guy Fieri’s word as well.

Known for their famous crab cakes, make sure you pick up some to try either alone, in a sandwich, with shrimp, or even as a breakfast. Seafood not your thing?

My favorite is the Apple Chai Tea, which is sweet with “just the right amount of spice to warm your soul,” as my friendly waiter put it. Whether you try the Apple Chai or not, you’ll definitely be happy with what you get.

Food Fridays: Papermoon Diner

Friday, September 16th, 2016 by Cara Hullings

What: Papermoon Diner

Where: 227 W 29th St

When: Hours

Funky. Eccentric. Delicious. That’s the best way to do justice to the Papermoon Diner. Full of color and strange decorations, like doll heads, this place is Baltimore’s take on diners.

Cool decorations aren’t the only appeal though. This diner has amazing food ranging from brunch to nachos to pasta to milkshakes (pictured above). With food for vegans and meat-lovers alike, this is a diner for everyone. The only negative about Papermoon is that it takes forever to decide what you want! I would recommend something to you, but even I can’t make up my mind as to what’s the best. Check out their menu here and stop in to pig out.
