Lovely neighborhood restaurant

I decided to try this place out for lunch when my sister was visiting. It is in Charles Village and one of the few nice sit-down restaurants there. It is within walking distance from Hopkins (Homewood campus) so that's really appealing. I ordered the Pesto Pizza and it was quite good. It was not... read more

This is a small but busy place near Hopkins Homewood. We brought our son and his friend for lunch and found an outside of the box menu of apps, soups and sandwiches. We started out with hummus for the table to share, which came with not only pita, but also Greek olives, olive oil, cucumber slices and a crispy lavash.... More

charles village is this little neighborhood next to JHU's homewood campus. being next to one of the top higher educational institutes, one would think he/she will find a decent place to eat. on the same two blocks (St. Paul st.) you have plenty of fast food places from subway to chipotle, from ledo's pizza to Korean take out place. so...

The dish to die for here is the corn fritters. Believe me when I say I am not usually a fan of fried stuff. But these fritters are light, fluffy, and especially delicious when dipped in the honied sauce that accompanies it. Oh man! The rest of the food is mediocre and the wines definitely sub-par. But it is a... More

My son said this was the best place around Hopkins. Very disappointing. Would have expected better food for the price. Any ways what counts is that the kids think its good.

Donna's was the first restaurant we discovered when our son began attending Johns Hopkins and we have been back many times since. The atmosphere is informal and friendly, and the food is above average, with pretty decent burgers alongside some interesting entree choices. I've had the scallops several times, and they've always been good, but I've never had anyone in... More

A great neighborhood place to go. The menu doesn't change very often, but the food is always consistently good.

Between the chewy steak and the charge of $2.50 to put my vodka on the rocks we won't ever return to our once favorite neighborhood restaurant. They doubled there pieces and the food has really become inferior. We are so disappointed.

I love Donna's. It is located in Charles Village. It had a great neighbor feel. It is casual, not pricy, it has good food and drink, it is open for breakfast, lunch and dinner and open late. The patio is a nice place to eat and people watch. We ate breakfast there several times. The croissant with scrambled eggs, cheese... More
