What: B.A.M.F. Cafe
Where: 1821 N. Charles St., Baltimore

What: Papermoon Diner
Where: 227 W 29th St
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.

What: 60 cent Cannoli
Where: Vaccaro’s Italian Pastry Shop
When: May 12 9am to 10pm
I don’t think this Food Friday needs too much advertising, if “60 cent Cannoli’s” doesn’t grab you then I don’t know what will. I can’t help you. No one can help you.
These amazing, fabulous, decadent, carefully made cannoli’s are now going to be available every 2nd Thursday for the rest of the year! Buttt you can’t go into this lovely pastry shop and clean them out! Only two per person, which I think is very fair, I would be fine with half a cannoli for 60 cents, plus… incase you didn’t know… these bad boys are large.
So head on down! Get yo cannoli’s!!!

Where: 1622 Eastern Ave
When: mon thru saturday
I think everyone needs to stop on by Ekiben in Fells Point soon, and I mean yesterday… It is great. From taking Fells by food truck Ekiben, an “asian comfort food” (baltimoresun.com) destination, has moved up the ranks to an old fashioned store front! And we could not be more excited! As a smaller restaurant this could possibly be your new go to places in Fells Point for take-out. Go for The Original or the Neighborhood Bird with side of Tempura Broccoli to split with your friends you will not be disappointed!

What: Kooper’s Tavern Brunch
Where: Historic Fells Point
Come on down to fells this weekend…weather is to suppose to balm(y)… and head to Kooper’s Tavern for a great brunch option or lunch if you’re not and never-will-be-a-brunch-person.
I had the pleasure of brunching at Kooper’s this past weekend; I jump started my early afternoon with an excellent table look out onto Thames and the water in Historic Fells Point. And then dove into the Cream of Crab… perfect brunch starter right? But, the Cream of Crab was so delicious I would’ve ate a vat of it.
Kooper’s does have a mean brunch, I got the French toast with whip cream and cinnamon and it was simply perfect. Or bite into a Fish Sandwich for lunch; blackened Atlantic Cod, avocado (amazing), fried onion straws, and cilantro lime aioli make this the perfect sandwich.
Stop on by to Kooper’s this weekend!

What: Canton Dockside
Where: 3301 Boston St. BMORE
Yes Baltimore is known for crabs, we all know that.
We know that because they are so so so good… especially at Canton Dockside.
Stop by Boston St to devour some amazing crab the classic Bmore way; knife and chisel in hand. Canton Dockside has the freshest crabs out there as they deal directly with the fishermen. If you’re not into cracking some shells no worries, they have plenty of other options that are less work intensive. Start off with a Crab Pretzel; a homemade pretzel with their delicious crab dip on top. Then move to a crab bisque (my personal fave) and maybe scoop an oyster or two (I promise it’s easy). Next, lets bite into a Blue Crab burger, or an Oyster Sandwich.
As you can see Canton Dockside has a wealth of seafood options for you to munch on.
