Fells Point is definitely one of my favorite neighborhoods to enjoy a great Sunday brunch. Last Sunday I visited Waterfront Hotel (1710 Thames Street, Baltimore MD). With a name like Waterfront Hotel, you would think it was a hotel, but it isn’t. It was once a private residence in the 1700’s and a hotel at one point in the 1800’s.
I’ve been to Waterfront Hotel before but only for happy hour and dinner. I remember them having a different food special for each day of the week, I like variety and that shows commitment.
I arrived early at 10:30 am and the restaurant wasn’t open yet. The staff was arranging the outdoor seating and bustling about inside taking care of daily preparations. I parked outside and waited for 30 minutes with the other patrons that had arrived early. Once inside my friend and I were greeted promptly by a friendly waitress that took our drink orders and brought out a fresh batch of bottomless mimosas.
The bottomless menu consists of bottomless mimosas, bloodies, screwdrivers or Natty Boh and the cost is $10.00 per person.
The brunch menu has many options – omelettes, benedicts, sandwiches, salads, bar snacks, entrees and breakfast sides. When in doubt I tend to go for an omelette. My omelette of choice was the Mexican Omelette -$13.00 (house-made chorizo, cheddar cheese, caramelized onions and chipotle salsa). It’s served with toast, tots or grits, bacon or sausage. I ordered the tots and sausage option, chorizo and sausage links…double meat, I love it! What I loved most about my omelette was the size, it was fat and full like an omelette should be.
My friend ordered a breakfast bowl with and over easy egg, potatoes, peppers, onions and crabmeat – $14.00.
We also had a taste for something sweet, so we ordered the Stuffed French Toast -$12.00 (cinnamon cream cheese, warm maple berry compote, with a choice of sausage or bacon). My friend doesn’t eat pork or red meat, so we ordered bacon for me 🙂 More Meat!
The French Toast wasn’t actually stuffed with the cinnamon cream cheese, it was spread between the two slices. It was yummy and different because I was expecting it to be stuffed inside the toast slices.
Brunch at Waterfront Hotel begins at 11:00 am, make sure you get there early to get a seat because the place fills up quickly. When we left around 2:30 pm and it was standing room only, some patrons were standing in the front area eating their food.
Waterfront Hotel also hosts live music on the upper level. All live shows start at 10:00 pm and there is never a cover charge. For more information on events of the menu please visit http://www.waterfronthotel.us/
