“fun and yummy”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 20, 2013

A warning--my seven year old was a little creeper out by the decor. You can see pictures elsewhere, But the doll heads were an issue for him.
Fantastic service, despite being hugely crowded.
A parking lot next door, free, makes this even better considering the location with hard to find parking on the street.
We all had burgers in our party from the extensive selection and all thought they were great. Pay extra for yummo onion rings are sweet potato fries. Also try the shakes, though the bacon one is a bit weird.
Enjoyed our visit thoroughly.

“The art and memorabilia makes this a necessary stop in Baltimore!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 16, 2013 via mobile

I had an amazing grilled cheese with havarti cheese, mango chutney and baby spinach. It was extremely tasty. The apple pancakes were equally tasty. The decor is worth the visit alone. We had fun picking out our favorite piece and pez! Prices were good considering portions were generous. Overall a great dining experience. Avoid weekends though - very lined up.

“Truly stunningly good breakfast.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 15, 2013

Paper Moon Diner provided the best food of the entire week on my recent trip to Baltimore. French toast, whipped cream, caramelised bananas, bacon and syrup. I can't describe just how delicious it was. Fantastic.

The let down at Paper Moon is the service. It is a little abrupt and unwelcoming. The surroundings are bizarre and mildly unsettling in my opinion. It's like you're at Sid's House in Toy Story, except on acid.

Great food though.

“Breakfast in Bmore”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 27, 2013 via mobile

Hands down most unique diner for atmosphere and menu. Very attentive staff at 8am an they even hand picked mint from the grden in back for my wifes drink. The quality of ingrediants and craftsminship are worth the $$. Oh and the milkshakes are insanely good....

“Kaptain Krunch Milkshake.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 22, 2013

A great restaurant with milkshakes that are to-die-for. The only tiff I can think of is that the price is a bit steep.
