The best breakfast from west coasters, warm, comfortable service; wish I had taken a book to enjoy, while waiting for our wonderful food – My husband and I were staying in Linthicum for the first time, and googled breakfast in Baltimore. What appeared was a 9.5 for Morning Edition. We adventured via Mapquest to find this quaint place in a questionable neighborhood, but as usual, the neighborhood was welcoming. We loved the food, the comfortable wait, the waitor, and we recommended it to our family on the East Coast. We will be back when we visit family.
Don't go here! – SLOW service. The service wasn't bad, but it moved at a turtle's pace. There was also a sense of apathy and a general lack of customer service. I had the bluberry pancakes and my wife had the veggie omlet. Very average food. If you have 2 hours to waste waiting for mediocore food, then go there. Otherwise, there are plenty of places that have faster, friendlier service.
Could be a good place to eat... – The ideas and menu items for this restaurant seem like a good idea. In my two experiences, the service was sub par and the food was good once and poor a second time. On one occassion, I ordered Belgian Waffles. They took 60 minutes to arrive. When they finally did come, they were cold. The waitress didn't bring me any syrup either, and I asked for it, and waited and waited and waited while my belgian waffles got colder and colder. The hash browns tasted like frozen Safeway hash browns. I did like the Seafood Omelet the second try. All in all, a disappointing restaurant that should be better.
If you have time... – then you should dine here. For those that complained about the time it took for your meals to arrive - the menu DOES mention that items prepared with eggs can take up to an hour to be ready. I think the food has unique ingredients which is refreshing. Some seats are uncomfortalbe, so beware. The staff is friendly.
Charming and comfortable, this cafe dishes up one fabulous brunch. – The Scene
Homey and laid-back, Morning Edition is the kind of place where you almost expect to see patrons sipping coffee in their robes and slippers. Full of quaint antiques, mismatched furniture and the cozy ease of the countryside, this cafe has become one of Baltimore's favorite places to start the day.
With such a diverse menu, it can be hard to make up your mind. The French toast resembles an indulgent dessert: thick slices of bread are dipped in oranges, cinnamon and Grand Marnier--sinfully delicious. Superb omelets come in countless varieties, but the version with hardwood-smoked bacon, mushrooms, peppers, onions and fontinella cheese is especially good. In addition to practically every breakfast food imaginable, Morning Edition offers lunch sandwiches, pastries and delicious scones. A fresh mimosa or steaming hot chocolate adds the perfect finishing touch.
Terrible Service – This was the worst service I've ever experienced! Seating-to-serving food (few omelets & french toast) for this Sunday mid-afternoon brunch took 1 hr 25 min, for ours & 3 other tables seated at the same time, in a place with only 12 tables! Good food didn't make up for feeling like walking out by the time food arrived. Being busy would be understandble, but they weren't!
The Worst!! – If a surly owner, cold coffee and small portions is what you desire, this is the place. I could count the home fries. The three small pieces of their "special" french toast was meager at best and the owner, well, he should go back to Vermont or over to the Blue Moon to see how to prepare breakfast. What a dump. I should have realized when I came in and the place was empty that it was going to be a bad meal, and it was.
Horrible! – This place was horrible! It took 50 minutes to get our food and when it finally came it wasn't even close to being good. The only positive thing I can say about it is that the waitress was polite.
Another time, another place. – This is the most wonderful place for breakfast/brunch. The food is scrumptious, something you don't eat everyday and presented beautifully. The interior is quaint with mix matched chairs, different sized and shaped tables. It is very warm and cozy. You never feel rushed either. You can eat, chat, read your paper, linger over your coffee and soak up the ambience. Just writing about this I am going to have to go eat there this weekend. Yum.
STOP THE PRESSES!!! – I absolutely agree with the nomination. The food and atmosphere are quaint and lovely. It is pricey but worth every freshly baked or cooked morsel. Bring your NY Times and spread out for a Sunday brunch. The omlettes and some other dishes take sometimes 45 minutes or longer. But, they are freshly made and fabulous. DO NOT go if you are in a hurry. But the coffee is hot, strong, yummy, and has a good kick AND they bring you freshly made and hot nut bread on which to nosh while you wait for your entree. The service is excellent. Call to make reservations first.
