We had been to Atwaters several times in the past at the recommendation of our daughter, and we thoroughly enjoyed their creative menu items (largely sandwiches, soups, and baked goods) . On those occasions, we ordered at the front desk and then, after receiving our order, walked up a flight of stairs where the dining area was. This time we... More

The naturally leavened breads and cakes are made from locally grown organic wheat flours and are excellent. Particularly good is the cranberry-pecan bread at this time of year as it is not always available. Also delicious are the lemon flavored mini-cupcakes. The bakery now has an extended breakfast and lunch menu and seating is available in up-stairs and down-stairs areas.... More

I have food sensitivities and requested that an item be removed from my salad and that the dressing be placed on the side. The salad was served with the allergen and the dressing was on the salad. When asked, the staff corrected it without a hassle. The food was delicious. It is very hard to find a restaurant that takes... More

Nice place to land for coffee and a scone or lunch Tiffen which includes home made soup, bread and a cookie. Yum!

Love the kale salad with buttermilk dressing and preserved lemons. Wish they sold the dressing in jars. Try the iced tea with lavender syrup - yum! So many good things to try - homemade soups, breads, interesting salads, Trickling Springs milk and smoothies. I recently ordered pie dough from the main bakery downtown. It was delivered the next morning -... More

ATWATER's is the best! Fresh food, all farm to table. Their souls are unmatched. Their sandwiches are artistic and I bet you've never had the combinations before. There's always fresh chocolate milk as well as other drinks. The desserts are divine. Chocolate Stout cupcake is to die for. I would recommend ATWATER's to anyone wanting more than boring and ordinary.

The coffee is rich and tasty. The space is a bit small for it's popularity, but if you get a table the coffee is free refills (which is the only way I can justify spending 3$ on a small cup of coffee).

This is a little coffee spot in Catonsville that feeds off their mothership location in Belvedere Square. They do not have the menu selection found in their HQ, but the espresso is ON POINT. I don't really go here for much more than the coffee. Sometimes I grab a chocolate croissant (they do not have a way to warm them... More
