Best Brunch

Blue Moon Café

1621 Aliceanna St., (410) 522-3940

Posted 9/13/2000

We woke up early one recent Saturday, bleary and famished, and began considering our brunch options. We called the Blue Moon, uncertain if they'd be open. "Oh, we've been pumping for hours," an employee reassured us. In fact, unlike some brunch-servers in town, the Blue Moon serves brunch during breakfast hours--say, 7 A.M. (They're open till 3 P.M. and--also unlike their competitors--serve brunch every day.) And so down to Fells Point we drove, falling into the café's welcoming embrace--its warm, fragrant atmosphere, always spiced with music that's relaxing but not sleepy (Tom Petty and the Beatles were in the CD changer that day); its almost motherly service; and most of all, its food: its omelets, its crepes, its pancakes, its mile-high biscuits, its fruit smoothies, its Mexican sausage, and its garden eggs (scrambled eggs studded with veggies and crispy hash browns and blanketed with cheddar). All this plus great coffee and the Blue Moon's famous big-as-your-head cinnamon rolls.
