We had heard this was very good from the locals. No reservations. So we were told to be prepared to wait. We got there right after it opened and were seated. I was looking forward to some great seafood. The seafood on the menu was all salmon? Here we are at The Chesapeake Bay! Where is the seafood? We ordered... More

It was one of those blustery rainy days and we were lucky to get a table as soon as we walked in, (No booking ahead.) The food was outstanding, the service incredible and we have the loveliest server with the biggest smile. This small restaurant had been recommended to us again and again and I don't know why we waited... More

CD Cafe is an excellent restaurant serving fresh seafood and local favorites. It is small, often producing a waiting line in the entryway of the building. We had an excellent salmon dinner and a rock fish dinner that was similarly excellent. A house Chardonnay and Creme Brulee topped off the evening. The food could not have been better. One of...

I have only been here two times, both times I have been impressed with the service and the food. They have great wine and desserts. My only complaint would be how small it is which meant we had to wait for a bit before being seated.

This place has something for everyone but, it's all great. The fare includes local dishs, sandwichs,and specials that are out of this world. I recommend Scallops BBT and Deb's chopped Salad and my personal favorite, the Bistro Burger. Full service bar included. And if they are busy out front, go around back to the "Lounge" with a slightly shaved menu,... More

We had gone to Cove Point for wine tasting and since we didn't know the area very well we asked for a recommendation on where to eat. The owner of the winery suggested CD Cafe. The name didn't sound very impressive, and when we drove up the location wasn't fancy, but we decided to try it. WOW! I'm so glad... More

Always terrific food. Best in Solomons. Acoustics can get a bit loud at times but food is top notch. Highly recommend

My family of four came here for brunch last Sunday. My food was very good--I got the curry chicken salad. Very fresh with a good salad. My husband ordered and odd special--sheperds pie in an egg white omelet--Ew. The result was even worse than it sounds. My daughter hated her pizza and my son ordered eggs and bacon--impossible to screw... More

CD Cafe is not only quaint in appearance but is perfection in dining. I've had the pleasure of eating there several times and they have never let me down. The breads, soups, entries and desserts are sublime. Love them. Their small in size so plan ahead but it is so wonderful.

We had heard about CD Cafe forever but only this summer made the trek to eat there. For a restaurant challenged area, they have great, and delicious menu options that are creative and consistently good! Highly recommend this restaurant!
