The CD Cafe is a small Restaurant and does not look too inviting - but the food was amazing: sword fish and tuna, both perfectly cooked, with tasty vegetables and just delicious. The desert was a excellent creme brûlée.

Pan roasted salmon, over risotto, with artichoke hearts, pine nuts and spinach - what a wonderful combo!

Luckily we shared a sandwich because it was absolutely huge! And delicious! The steak fries were a nice touch in a unique shape! Cocktails were wonderful as well!

Ordered carry out dinner to take back to our little Airbnb accommodation to eat overlooking the water. We called the order in and it was only about 5 minutes wait after we arrived to pick it up. Being that I have started a lifestyle change,...I keep tabs on my portions and was able to order steak at the correct portion size just for me! I ordered the Napolean appetizer with a side of asparagus for my entrée and it was 4oz tenderloin steak - spinach - portabella - boursin cheese - balsamic reduction which was the perfect fit to my eating plan. It was tender, cooked perfectly medium, and so good. My husband ordered the Ceasar Salad with a Steak add-on and the steak came already cut for him to add to his salad. That is a very thoughtful thing for them to do. He said the ceasar was very good and the steak was perfect as well. CD Cafe comes highly recommended from this couple!More

One of the best ‘non-secret’ joints in town. Our wait to be seated for dinner was a little longer than usual (due to Covid precautions) but entirely worth it! Caesar salads for the most part to me are unimpressive interludes before ‘The Meal’. Well not...here - their salad is tasty and delicious with a perfect portion of anchovy flavor. My wife thoroughly enjoyed her sizable crab cake and I went with the Thai dish that included scrumptious shrimp and tender slices of ribeye pork that was among the best I have eaten. Great service - clean & comfortable.More

We enjoyed our recent stay on beautiful Solomon's Island in Calvert County, MD. Ann Marie Gardens is a great place to visit for a shady walk amongst interesting sculptures and fairy gardens. Lots of good eating - we enjoyed The Lighthouse, and CD Cafe. Stop...by Lotus for delicious coffee and key lime pie!More

CD Cafe, the name does not do this delectably delicious restaurant. Although small in physical footprint, the food carries huge flavor and a great menu. One of our go to places to eat in Solomon’s. Call ahead to be sure you don’t have to wait...as this “cafe” is always busy. Highly recommended.More

Tiny little place - 10 - 15 tables. Very cozy Menu choices varied from full meals to sandwiches. We had the dinner specials and they were fabulous. Great dessert options - one being a root beer float! HIGHLY RECOMMENDED.
