Taking a Bite Out Of Baltimore’s Neighborhoods: Charles Village

Source: Baltimore Eats

Charles Village has never really been a hotspot for restaurants. Sandwiched between Homewood, Hopkins and Greenmount Ave, this neighborhood has always seemed culinarily bare, at least to me. But a second look around the area taught me that I was wrong. Charles Village has lots to offer in terms of great eats for college students and regular old people alike.

 

One of my favorites is, of course, the Papermoon Diner (although some might argue that’s actually in Remington). I’ve been here more times than I can count and the awesomely artful atmosphere never fails to charm. The food is ...

Following each story, an award was given to each champion and ...

Celebrating Baltimore’s Culinary Traditions: Charlesmead

Source: Baltimore Eats

A few days ago I took a trip to Charlesmead pharmacy; truly, it was like taking a trip back in time. This North Baltimore pharmacy features an old-fashioned soda fountain that seems like its hardly changed a bit from the 1950s. 

 

Growing up just over the county line in Rodgers Forge, I visited Charlesmead frequently. It was almost exactly as I remembered it, down to the white and pea-green tiled floor and the shiny chrome stools at the counter. There’s even a banner above, proclaiming “FAX IS HERE.” (Any bets on what year that was put up?)
