Almond Croissant - Must Have

We recently stopped in On the Hill Cafe on our way to BWI. The cafe is small - maybe seating for 16 or so inside - which we found charming. We tried the almond croissant, a breakfast burrito, and a spinach and feta breakfast sandwich, together with coffee. All three choices were tasty, but the... read more

Last week my granddaughter treated me to lunch at On the Hill Cafe, and what a treat it was. I don't think I've ever seen such an interesting menu of sandwiches, salads, etc. We both had a half sandwich with salad combination. (You can also have the half sandwich with soup of your choice.) I had the On the Hill... More

If you're into tamale cakes you must try them here!!! The burgers are awesome as well. In addition, there's bottomless coffee - No complaints from me!

I don't get out for lunch all that often. On the weekends, that time is kept sacred for brunch-like foods, coffee and mimosas (or a properly made bloody). I was lucky enough to have a chance to stop into this little cafe on a Thursday afternoon. It's on the corner of John Street and Mosher Street in Bolton Hill -... More

Tiny place? Yes however great food, fast service, you have to interact with the order taker to customize your meal to your liking. This is a unique thing and create a nice feeling about the love for food and re-set the standards for customer care that's is fading away during this era of high-speed everthing. Food via drive-thru? not good... More

We live around the corner from On The Hill. The food is good and generally fast. However it is just too crowded at lunch to go any more, especially when it is cold and the outside tables are not available The regular staff is helpful and pleasant. The owner seems more interested in bossing around his cooks and counting his... More

Just a few blocks from our B & B we found this neighborhood coffee shop with delightful breakfast foods. Locals visit and relax on this corner of a gentrified neighborhood of restored row-houses.

I think some 3 star reviews of this hidden gem on the hill are funny how they obviously seem to have been looking for say a 'business meeting' larger lunch spot so they didn't find this lovely oasis met their needs. It's tiny, busy and can run out of bagels because it's tucked in feel in a close-knit community small... More

I've been there several times lately because I like their bagels so it's annoying when they run out! They have a good bagel and smoked salmon combination with the right condiments. Also the lines can get long and the place is small, so they must be doing something right.
