This place is mostly a coffee and bagel place, but they do serve interesting food. They will do breakfast things (like omlets) all day. But they don't do dinner, so the price of a meal is not applicable.

Favorite Dish: Last year (2005), I wanted to have lunch on the way to my mom's house, so I stopped here and had a chicken salad sandwich
Last week (June 2006), my sister and I were visiting a lawyer, and afterwards we stopped here for lunch. My sister asked what was good, and I said that I'd only been here once. I ordered iced tea, and a spinach, cheese and tomato omlet which they put on a spinach and cheese bagel. I also got a chocolate chip coffee cake.
My sister waited to see what I ordered, and then she got the same. She said that she had learned to get what I got because I usually ordered something good.
When my sister and I were clearing out my mom's house, we would have to eat lunch somewhere, and one of the places we ate was here at this place.

Favorite Dish: They have lunch specials which are about $6.00 each (photo 5). The signature 20 oz crab cake dinner is $38.00, but that's about the most expensive things on the menu. They also have a children's menu (photo 2) and they also have non-seafood things for me to eat.
This restaurant is beside and in the basement of Merchantile Bank. Merchantile Bank is between M&T Bank and the Bank of America, facing the Courthouse. It seems to be a place to get a quick deli sandwich, soup or salad to take back to your office - not many people seem to eat there. But it is a little more expensive than most fast food.
Favorite Dish: My daughter had a chicken salad wrap and a large coke which she shared with her son. I had what was basically a cheese sandwich which had bacon in it. My grandson also had a sandwich and we all had chips as part of it. The bill was over $21.00
I TOOK MY BROTHER WHO IS FROM NEW YORK TO THIS PIZZA PLACE BECAUSE I HEARD IT HAD THE BEST NEW YORK PIZZA AND WANTED TO SEE WHAT HE THOUGHT...HE SAID IT WAS EXACTLY LIKE THEY MAKE IT IN NYC AND I GOT THE HUGE 10 INCH MONSTER SUB- IT WAS ALL MEAT NOT ALL BREAD LIKE OTHER SUB PLACES- THE STAFF IN THE FRONT WERE VERY NICE AND THE SERVICE WAS VERY FAST EVEN THOUGH IT WAS BUSY FOR DELIVERY. I WILL MAKE THIS MY WEEKLY STOP BEFORE CLASSES AND THE PRICE IS PRETTY CHEAP!!!
Favorite Dish: GREAT NYC PIZZA AND HUGE MEATY SUBS AND THE WINGS ARE ROTTISERIE STYLE AND ARE DELICIOUS AS WELL
My sister and my husband and my daughter and I wanted to meet for lunch, and my sister suggested this place. We wanted someplace we could sit down and talk, and she thought we could do that here. We had a seat in the back where it was quieter and less smoky. My sister said she had also been here for dinner.
I think it was somewhat more her kind of place than mine - somewhat trendy food and a little more expensive that I appreciate.
Favorite Dish: My sister and I both had chicken salad sandwiches on focacocia ($7.95), and Bob had a tuna salad sandwich ($6.95). My daughter had the pulled pork BBQ ($7.95). All the sandwiches came with chips, which made us thirsty. We had trouble getting refills on water, and my sister also drank iced tea, which was also hard to get the refills for.
The restaurant has a cozy environment, wonderful service, and the food is excellent.
Favorite Dish: My favorite dish is the Chicken fried rice. I suppose it seems simple,, but it is the ABSOLUTE best fried rice I have ever had.
The soups are also lovely, and I have yet to here something negetive about any of the food they serve.
Hampton is a National Historic Site. I have been there several times for luncheons. The picture was taken of the tea room entrance in the spring of 1970 as my daughter and family friends were leaving the tea room.
In 1998, on the morning of the 15th, the Baltimore Sun published an article noting the NPS' conclusion that the Tea Room concession poses an unacceptable hazard to the historic house in which it is located, and resulting decision to close the concession operation
Meetings were held on the subject of the direction and goals for Hampton. Most participants regreted the closing of the tea room in the mansion, most commonly noting that it is "part of the history and ambiance of Hampton." There were numerous recommendations that an alternate "appropriate place for refreshment" be provided at the park, to attract visitors, make a visit more pleasant, and continue the tradition. Most participants see "attractive, nifty food service with class and style" as an important part of the visitor experience and important for sustaining visitation. A small number of participants recommended "close the tea room permanently."
Favorite Dish: The concessionaire operated the Tea Room in the east wing of the mansion, and numerous private events took place on the terrace. There is still reference to this on the internet, but you can no longer eat here.
Afternoon tea was Tuesday through Saturday, 11.30am to 3pm. Indoor and patio seating.
I do not drink coffee so I do not frequent Starbucks. I was waiting at the traffic light to cross York Road and I had my camera out so I took this picture.
There used to be a gas station on this corner that we patronized quite a bit (I think it was Hollinshades). Then Hollinshade moved and another gas station took over. But I think they went out of business.
This Starbucks is fairly new to the area and is known as the Towson University Starbucks. They have a drive-through window, and you can also cross the pedestrian bridge to the Marriott which is right behind it.
