Best Diners/Coffee Shops In Maryland

Some of the best places to hang out are diners or coffee shops. The food is tasty and usually cheap and there's plentiful caffeine. What's not to love? Here are some of the best ones in and around Baltimore.

Baltimore Coffee and Tea

890 Bestgate Road
Annapolis, MD 21401
(410) 573-5792

According to their slogan, Baltimore Coffee & Tea roasts the world's best coffee. The sheer number of different types of coffee would seem to bear that out. There are different blends and seasonal offerings and it's all fair trade coffee (some organic). While there, you can enjoy some of the gourmet food or indulge your inner child with some hot chocolate.


Boulevard Diner

1660 Merritt Boulevard
Dundalk, MD 21222
(410) 285-8660

Hopefully, you're hungry when you go to the Boulevard Diner. Even flipping through the menu could make the best dieter change their mind. Make sure to save room for dessert; they've got just about every kind of sweet treat you could want, from cheesecake to pie to rice pudding.


Broadway Diner

6501 Eastern Avenue
Baltimore, MD 21224
(410) 631-5666

Featured on the Food Network Show, "Diners, Drive-Ins and Dives," The Broadway Diner is a Baltimore institution. The host recommends the potato-crusted salmon or shrimp creole, but the entire menu looks fantastic. Don't forget about dessert; the chocolate peanut butter cake or double chocolate mousse cake both sound wonderful.

You can tell the people at Papermoon Diner had fun when they named their menu options. From dishes like Salmon Chanted Onion to Lox Around the Clock, the dishes are as fun to say as they are to eat. They don't take reservations, so get there early.
