Federal Hill & Fells Point
Follow your nose to the intoxicating scent of fresh toast drizzled with bananas and bourbon syrup, which oozes out of Spoons Café, nestled in the Historic Federal Hill district at 24 E. Cross Street. Home to Baltimore’s best brunch menu, guests can choose from a healthy selection of locally sourced, natural options like the Blue Crab Asparagus Frittatta. From the café, hop the water taxi, which is the easiest and most convenient way to get around the harbor area. For lunch, visit the family-owned Lebanese Taverna at 719 S. President Street, where specialties include fresh, vegetarian Middle Eastern staples like stuffed grape leaves, spinach pie and spiced aged feta. To combat the evening heat, duck into the always-buzzing Pitango Gelato (802 South Broadway), brimming with all-natural gelatos made using organic milk and local produce. Rhubarb sorbet, anyone? For stocking up on organic goodies, visit the Harbor East Whole Foods Market at 1001 Fleet Street. For a guided walking tour of the city, which waltzes you past several hole-in-the-wall finds, visit the Preservation Society in the Inner Harbor, or craft a custom tour of your own desire with the help of Monumental Tours’ RS Brown, an amicable host and foodie.
