    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.

    Store Hours

    Tuesday: 5:30 am - 5:00 pm

    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.

    Deb and I (Barb) were up in Towson with our kids after my grandmother died, and needed to get lunch somewhere. We knew that TGIF had a kids menu. So we went here.

    Cafe Gourmet: All Fresh All Day

    Steps down to the Cafe

    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

    Razorback's Bar and Grill: Business Lunch

    Restaurant from the parking lot
    4 more images

    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.

    Former Hampton Tea Room: National Historic Site

    by grandmaR Updated Jun 6, 2005

    1.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    People leaving the tea room Spring 1970

    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.

    Starbucks: Towson University Drive In

    by grandmaR Written Sep 17, 2004

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Starbucks from the car

    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.

    This is one of my mom's favorite restaurants. I think it is too noisy

    Favorite Dish: We went here with my mom for late lunch. I had a French dip roast beef sandwich which was a daily special listed on the board outside. It was a bit salty and a bit gristly. Bob had a club which looked good. My mom usually has the cream of crab soup.

    They have lunch specials which are about $6.00 each. 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, and can deal quite well with children.

    Frisco Burritos: These are Big Burritos

    by gnunez311 Written May 12, 2003

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Frisco Burritos

    Frisco Burritos brings a nice slice of California funk to rather staid old Towson. The ingredients are generally quite fresh, and the food is reasonably priced. All in all, it's a solid choice for the lunch-time crowd or shoppers looking for a quick, nonfranchise meal.

    Frisco sits on a busy block in downtown Towson. Inside, it has something of a Mexican motif, with paintings of farmers and dancers adorning one wall. Service is brisk, thanks to a very efficient staff whipping up dishes in the small, open kitchen.

    The menu is built around three basic Mexican dishes -- burritos, tacos and quesadillas. Fixings for each include chicken, steak, chorizo or spinach.

    Favorite Dish: The burritos come in two sizes, regular and jumbo. My chorizo (spicy Spanish sausage) burrito was indeed jumbo-sized, a huge cylinder of goodies -- rice, black beans, salsa fresca and a slightly tangy chipotle pepper barbecue sauce -- all wrapped in a homemade tortilla. It was a solid, delicious meal and worth the $5.75.

    This place has it all for hungry Towson University students: Hamburgers, chicken, buffalo wings, ribs and beer.

    Favorite Dish: Bill Bateman's claims to have the best buffalo wings in Towson, their burgers and ribs are also some of the best in town.

    The Melting Pot: Fondue, Fondue and more Fondue

    The Melting Pot

    This fondue-only restaurant will take you back in time. The cook-your-own-and-eat options offers lots of choices in a contemporary setting. Choices are ample but due to their pricing strategy I would recommend that you stick to the cheese and dessert.

    Favorite Dish: Flaming Turtle for dessert is a must!

    Teo' Pepe's is a five star restaurant, and pretty expensive, but, if you are looking for a place to celebrate, or to just have a nice romantic dinner, Teo' Pepe's is the place. Its a cozy restaurant, WONDERFUL service, and the food is delicious. The Chef will even come out and say hello. :-)

    Favorite Dish: When I went there to celebrate my birthday, I got the filet mignon. It was the best that I have had. All those I went with were very happy with what they got as well.
