City Cafe: A User's Guide

Brunch Café | New American Dinner | Trendy Cocktail Bar | Dog-Friendly Patio

Sample Menu

  • Brunch: crispy oysters-rockefeller omelet with a side of chipotle grits
  • Dinner (small plate): espresso-rubbed-lamb lollipops
  • Dinner (entree): wild-mushroom ravioli
  • Cocktail: Cool as a Cucumber gin martini

    Where to Sit: Since City Cafe is split into three sections, where you sit depends on your dining motives. Select from the café section (for morning coffee), the elegant cocktail lounge (for late-night and happy-hour drinks), or the cozy, split-level dining room (for more leisurely meals).



    When to Go: Swing by for dinner on Tuesday, when every bottle of wine is discounted by $10 and select entrees only cost $15.



    Inside Tip: When the weather's nice, ask your pooch to accompany you for brunch on the dog-friendly patio.



    While You're in the Neighborhood
    Before: Sip a coffee while scoping out the tiny, but intriguing collection of books at Read Street Books (229 West Read Street).
    After: Get your daily dose of culture at Joseph Meyerhoff Symphony Hall (1212 Cathedral Street) or the Lyric Opera House (140 West Mt. Royal Avenue), both just blocks from City Cafe.

When Lord Baltimore granted 370 acres of land to the Reverend James Macgill in 1730, he never imagined that a restaurant would be built there. Macgill and his descendants lived on the homestead for more than 200 years before selling it for restaurant development in the 1960s. Today, their stately columned mansion provides a pastoral backdrop for lunch, dinner, and brunch. Intimate candlelit dining rooms foster a romantic atmosphere, which has prompted frequent proposals inside the restaurant. Voted Howard County's finest dining by Howard Magazine in 2013, The Kings Contrivance Restaurant plays host to flickering lights that illuminate plates of pan-seared filet mignon, roasted duck breast, veal, and saut?ed shrimp, all selections on a traditional menu with hints of European and Asian influence. The knowledgeable staff can suggest the best wine to pair with any dish.

Inspired by early 20th century chili parlors, Hard Times Cafe aims to preserve the tradition of delectable, hearty fare served in a friendly, lively community eatery. Elevate taste buds to new heights with an order of legendary grilled wings in one of five flavors, including original Texas, chili-lime, honey-barbecue, and eternity ($8.99 per order). Hard Times Cafe serves four distinct varieties of chili. The authentic chili mac is served over spaghetti with your choice of accouterments ($7.49–$8.89). Burgers, sliders, and chili dogs are easily transportable by hand or hovercraft, and savory steaks and other suppertime favorites provide more refined nourishment options. To reward you for your literary prowess, every Groupon reader who texts HTCGRP to 59925 gets an additional coupon good for one order of bar nachos. Combine this offer with a Groupon, or save it for a subsequent visit.

The word bagel serves as an umbrella term, describing a whole host of flavored doughs, just so long as they have a hole in the middle. The bakers at The Bagelry take full advantage of that potential for variety, pairing more than 25 flavors of bagel with 11 styles of cream cheese. They also top their circular creations with breakfast goodies such as eggs, bacon, and shredded Sunday crossword puzzles. For lunch, they turn to a wider variety of grains to make sandwiches such as the meat-free Yenta with cucumbers and muenster cheese and the Zadey with corned beef and pastrami in thousand island dressing.

There are two kinds of sweetness at Dessert Affairs Waldorf: the rich, decadent bites of cakes and desserts and the crisp flavors of freshly squeezed juices. On the decadent side, the staff crafts a range of desserts, from gooey brownies to dessert shooters and numerous flavors of cupcakes. For juices, they combine up to three fresh fruits, such as mango, raspberry, and pineapple, to create sweet, sippable glasses full of nutrients. For an added health boost, they can also blend in kale, protein powder, or flaxseed to create a true morning energy drink without incorporating a pulverized alarm clock.

Zaggora's founder Dessi was scrambling. She needed to lose a little weight before her wedding, but none of the weight loss products she used seem to move the needle. Eventually, she took matters into her own hands, inventing her own effective method for slimming down. Zaggora's multi-layer capris, tops, shorts, and blazers put the heat naturally emitted by the body during exercise to work burning more calories. A 2012–2013 study conducted by ETScience at University of Southern California showed users wearing Zaggora used less energy to achieve high cardio levels and burned anywhere from 6–18% more calories and than those wearing standard exercise clothing.

Made from a comfortable bioceramic material, the shorts' ThermoFit technology smoothes thighs and other dimple-prone areas by warming body tissues and increasing their metabolic rate. This process boosts energy expenditure before and after exercise, and aids in eliminating cellulite-causing toxins.
