Best Brunch

Blue Moon Café

1621 Aliceanna St., (410) 522-3940

Posted 9/17/1997

Baltimore is blessed with a great many restaurants for enjoying a great brunch, and this is a tough category to award. After much deliberation, the trophy goes to the Blue Moon for its excellent food, powerhouse coffee, and the fact its quality gourmet breakfast menu is available not only for Sunday brunch but, yum, every day of the week (except Monday, when they're closed). You'll have to wait for a table on Saturdays and Sundays, but weekdays are perfect for leisurely, relaxed newspaper-reading sessions. We love the homemade biscuits, fluffy and flaky and perfect, that accompany breakfast orders at this Fells Point eatery. Even better are the homemade cinnamon rolls- plate-sized coils of rich, sweetly aromatic yeasty bliss-but you have to get there early for these sell-out crowd pleasers. The Hobo Eggs-a Blue Moon invention-are a deliciously snappy scramble of cheese, veggies, and spicy chorizo sausage; and the potato pancakes are crispy, lightly fried perfection; and the eggs Benedict ranks among the finest heart-stopping breakfast fare served in this city.
