Federal Hill: Spoons

Among the throng of bars in Fed Hill, there’s a cute little coffee shop that could easily be missed if you’re not looking for it. And when I’m in the mood for brunch, it is easily my favorite spot in Fed Hill. Spoons is not your traditional brunch place though, because in addition to great food and drinks, they also roast their own coffee beans and while I didn’t order a cup of coffee on this visit, I can attest that they brew a great cup!



After a quick morning walk around the neighborhood, my friend and I decided to pop into Spoons for something to eat. We were in the mood for something deliciously unhealthy because we just worked out a little, so what better way to negate all of that exercise than with an order of the O-Nuts. O-Nuts are Baltimore-style cinnamon beignets topped with powdered sugar. We split the small order which was only 3 beignets and more than enough for the two of us. They were light and sweet and not greasy in the slightest which was amazing because I know these were deep-fried.



My friend was interested in continuing her unhealthy quest through the Spoons menu and decided to order the Crunchy French Toast which is french toast dipped in corn flakes. (If you’re interested in another french toast dipped in cereal, consider Captain Crunch French Toast at Blue Moon Cafe.) The french toast was great and the portion size is quite large for only $8.

I love a good egg dish, so I decided to order the Steak Fajita Breakfast Burrito. Inside the burrito was scrambled eggs, onion, peppers, cheddar cheese, salsa verde and I swapped the steak for bacon. I really liked the dish, however the egg to tortilla ratio was insane so I ended up taking the eggs out of the wrap to finish the dish. It was good, but I’d probably try something else next time.

My breakfast burrito came with a side of Potatoes. I’m not a huge fan of potatoes but these were pretty good, seasoned nicely and cooked well.



While I love Spoons and will gladly come in any day of the week for their delicious brunch, their hours are horrible. They close at 2pm daily and that prevents Spoons from being my number one coffee go-to spot.

Horrible hours aside, the food is delicious and definitely worth a visit.
