On the final days of a 10 day cruise of the Chesapeak Bay we put in at Solomans Island for a couple of nights. We walked out the marina gate to the CD Cafe. An intimate dining opportunity in an unexpected place. Four great meals followed but sumptuous desserts. The service provided by Bridget was flawless and made the entire... More

Living here for 10 years, CD is at least consistent. I had the soup. It was tasty. The salad was good as was the dressing. Sandwiches can be big. Sits a handful of people. No reservations. Get there when it opens or wait

The food here is always creative. Not your run of the mill place to visit, expect your taste buds to be excited when you get any of the dishes offered. A very wide selection of fresh desserts. A different dinner and dessert special every day.

I had the Italian sandwich special with a side of Brussel sprouts that was sautéed with onion, bacon, feta cheese and other items that was warm and very tasty. The portion was big and filling. My wife had a petite salad and my son had fresh Mac and cheese. All of it was freshly made and perfect for everyone's appetite.... More

I came here with a group of colleagues attending a meeting nearby. It came highly recommended and that was well deserved. Seven of us had lunch and all was delicious. I was torn between the pastrami and a chicken, ham, and rosemary sandwich (sorry if that's not a perfect description from memory). I chose the chicken sandwich and it was... More

There is a reason why this restaurant is rated #1 on TripAdvisor for Solomons. I visited on a busy night by myself and sat at the bar. The restaurant is small, and lively since every table is filled. The wait staff was very friendly. I ordered a special - a filet of flounder topped with (I think) a mango, coconut,... More

The CD Cafe has been a fixture on Solomons for decades and consistently ranks number.... For good reason!! The menu is original and quite tasty with nightly specials. The main dining room is small but there is overflow seating in the adjacent Next Door Lounge which is set up like a wine bar with a beautiful copper curvaceous bar and... More

The food at this small cafe is excellent. My burger was the best I have ever had. I strongly recommend it. By the way, ask for Becky. She was a great waitress

The food is always good and reasonable prices but the deserts are absolutely insane. Anyone wanting to gain poundage every day and/or night, get any of their deserts. No complaints are servers are always top rate. Have dined here many times over the years and continue to return.

We went to the CDCafe for a spontaneous dinner tonight, a Sunday night, and we were all delighted. I think my scallops were the best. My husband was very happy with his lamb sandwich and black bean soup. Our friends thoroughly enjoyed the shrimp Alfredo and the gumbalaya. Without question, thought, the butterscotch crime brule was unique and enjoyed by... More
