Late weekend mornings call for a brunch outing with your friends. Baltimore has many fantastic options, so we’ve put together a list of some of our favorite places for you to try. From classic breakfast dishes like waffles to lox, eggs, and bottomless drinks, we have you covered. Leave a comment and tell us about your favorite Baltimore brunch spot.
1. Duck Duck Goose (Fell’s Point)
Located in the heart of Fell’s Point in Baltimore City, DDG always hits the spot. For brunch drinks, DDG offers bottomless mimosas with your choice of orange or pineapple juice. Although you can’t go wrong with any brunch dish on the menu, our personal favorites are the Smoked Salmon Tower (picture-perfect for the Instagram photos), the steak sandwich, and any dish with the fluffy eggs. We also recently tried the new Breakfast DDG Burger and it was mouth-watering.
2. Bond Street Social (Fell’s Point)
Bond Street is another great option in Fell’s Point. Bond Street’s menu is set up as a sharing plate concept, with the food coming out as soon as it is ready. It is especially a great option if your group is up for trying all of the goodies on the menu. Some of our recent favorite dishes there included: the lobster roll bites, the breakfast pizza, and the mac & cheese bites. Bond Street has three different types of mimosas on its menu, as well as two bloody mary options. You can also order a mimosa carafe for $15.
3. Avenue Kitchen & Bar (Hampden)
Although we haven’t been to the Avenue in a few months, we still recall with fondness the great brunch we had in this Hampden spot. The breakfast burrito was marvelous, as were the chilaquiles. There is also the “All You Can Drink VIP” option for $35 (which includes margaritas, mimosas, crushes, bloody marys, and sangria) and the regular “All You Can Drink” option, which excludes the margaritas and the crushes.
4. The Food Market (Hampden)
You are probably aware of the Food Market based on the amount of tables usually filled up with smiling faces when we’ve been there. Bring a small group with you (six people of course), so you can share all of the outstanding options. The amish soft pretzels are delicious, the big ole’ mozzarella sticks are just that -- big and cheesy, and the papa johntay flatbread is finger-licking good. Although there is no “drink deal” for brunch, there is an extensive brunch drinks list for you to enjoy.
5. Rye Street Tavern (Port Covington)
Rye Street has a great set up outside in a tent and a fantastic menu. You must start with the pecan cinna-buns! Absolutely amazing. Of course, this place is best known for the fried chicken, but my personal favorite is the breakfast sandwich. The avocado toast with Maryland crab is on the light side and not to be missed. For brunch, Rye Street has the typical mimosas and bloody marys, but also cold brew cocktails to wake you right up!
