If you’ve ever been to Baltimore, then you’re probably familiar with Blue Moon Cafe. Its been featured on Diners, Drive-ins and Dives and on a typical morning there’s a crowd of people waiting outside for a table (weekdays included.) Recently, a friend and I were willing to brave the crowds and the wait at this Fells Point eatery for Capt’n Crunch French Toast. While there are many brunch spots around the city that are fabulous, Blue Moon Cafe is the only one that serves this decadent dish.
Because Capt’n Crunch French Toast is what brought us to Blue Moon Cafe on this particular morning, it was the first thing we ordered. We got the smaller size offered and it’s two pieces of french toast battered and dipped in Captain Crunch then grilled. It is served with whipped cream and fresh fruit. French toast is one of my favorite breakfast options, and at Blue Moon Cafe they do a wonderful job preparing this. The captain crunch provides a nice sweet flavor which I love and also adds a nice crunch. The dish is very decadent and not something you can eat every day, but that doesn’t make it any less delicious.
The other item we ordered was Dimitri’s Salsa Burritos. The dish came with two tortillas stuffed with eggs, salsa, hash browns and cheese and then topped with more salsa and cheese. This was amazing, the salsa was fresh, the eggs were cooked well and the hash browns were nice and crispy.
We both really enjoyed everything we ordered and the wait for a table possibly only made the meal better. For a great brunch spot in Fells Point with unique offerings, consider Blue Moon Cafe. If you’re really opposed to waiting on lines, try going on a weekday morning or on an off hour the weekend when they’re open 24 hours.
