Canton: Del Marva’s Cafe

Update: Del Marva’s Cafe is now closed

While Baltimore may not be considered the south, it is certainly further south than where I grew up. There are more than just a handful of restaurants in Baltimore that specialize in ‘Southern Cuisine’ and one of them in Canton is Del Marva’s Cafe. When it comes to southern cuisine, many people only think of chicken and waffles or grits, when in fact southern cooking is so much more.

I’ve now driven past Del Marva’s Cafe more than just a handful of times and I’ve been wanting to check out what they have to offer. I made a plan with some friends to head over to Canton and check out all the Southern cooking that Del Marva’s Cafe has to offer.

When you enter Del Marva’s Cafe, the menu is on the wall and you order from a counter. We each ordered and sat at a table waiting for our food to come.  One of my friends ordered the Chicken Tenders, she said that these were the most moist chicken tenders she has ever had. These chicken tenders were awesome and I would probably order them when I go back.

The chicken tenders came with a side of French Fries. These fries were seasoned perfectly and packed with so much flavor.

Another friend ordered the Grilled Cheese. This grilled cheese was packed with cheese but nothing particularly special.

One of my friends was really craving something that reminded her of the south and decided to order the Southern Fried Chicken Sandwich. This sandwich was a buttermilk biscuit with chicken tenders, bacon, cheddar cheese, fried pickles and country gravy. My friend absolutely loved this sandwich she said all the elements combined perfectly to create something packed with flavors.

I was in the mood for something a little more basic and ordered a Bacon Egg and Cheese on a Biscuit. Personally I thought the bacon could have been cooked a little more and the biscuit was very dry, but I would go back toDel Marva’s Cafe to try something else on their expansive menu.
