Breakfast is the name of the game at this small but lively Fells Point eatery. They've got all the standards: French toast, pancakes and a wide variety of eggs, but the specialties are what really shine. Take the Crab Benedict, for instance, or the delicious Crab Crepe. During the week, the plain but tastefully decorated room is open during the typical breakfast and brunch hours. But from Friday through Sunday it's open all night long, and jammed with gadabouts topping off a late night with a hearty breakfast.

Ah, la vie bohemme! This scruffy but loveable Fells Point coffee and juice shop has such a wonderfully mellow atmosphere that you can relax completely, even while imbibing a highly-caffeinated gourmet coffee drink. The decor could be described as Neon Victorian, a funky blend of the day-glow and the antique, accented with overgrown houseplants and overflowing bookshelves. If you're not up for coffee, try one of the freshly squeezed juice drinks. There's also a selection of tasty sandwiches, humus and organic salads.
This historic building is the performance venue of the Fells Point Creative Alliance, a nonprofit group that offers support and information to local artists.

This casually offbeat coffeehouse, in the heart of historic Fells Point, features earnest musicians and racks of paperbacks for the entertainment and edification of its patrons. It also offers 17 espresso drinks and half-a-dozen flavored coffees, all at moderate prices, as well as a broad menu of Eastern European items like Borscht and Pierogies. Many visitors insist the coffeehouse is worth visiting just to have a spoonful of Russian Apple Soup - small bowls of amber heaven.
