I really wanted to the "on the hill" but every time I go in I receive the absolute worst service. I waited at the counter for 4 mins before the cashier came over. I ordered a dirty chai latte which has to the the worst chai I've ever tasted ! Look she left the tag bag in! The chai smells... More

Food is typically very good, coffee is always good, not great, but good. Staff is always first-rate. Definitely great for lunch or quick dinner.

We met with a student from MICA and he led us here for lunch as he was telling us that his meals have always been great. Yes, we definitely agreed with him. It is a small, trendy place with a huge selection of sandwiches, burgers, burritos, etc. with a great mix of ingredients. We had a Rutter burrito, Zola burger... More

On The Hill serves great sandwiches at good prices. My favorites are the burger and the BLT. There are a small number of tables outside and on a sunny day, it is a nice escape whether you live in the neighborhood or stop by from somewhere else. I happen to live in Bolton Hill, an historic neighborhood of Baltimore where... More

My wife and I were in Baltimore for a dental appointment today and while I was waiting I checked TripAdvisor for a good place to have lunch. I found On The Hill Cafe, which had excellent reviews so once we were done at the dentist, we headed to 1431 John Street which was just a little over a mile away.... More

This cafe, which appeared to be the only eatery in its area, offers a nice variety of healthy foods at fair prices. Staff was friendly. We ate outdoors on a pleasant summer day and certainly enjoyed our brunch.

Good hamburger and similar food in a small neighborhood restaurant. I've eaten here a number of times. It's sometimes quite crowded although there are additional tables outdoors for summer. Helpings generous.

Found this place looking for a sit down place during Artscape. Even during that busy time I managed to snag a seat at one of the 7 tables for 2. Located corner row house (so you know its tiny). Had tamale cakes adding pork for a huge portion. Food was excellent. You order at the counter so it's not full... More

Last week my granddaughter treated me to lunch at On the Hill Cafe, and what a treat it was. I don't think I've ever seen such an interesting menu of sandwiches, salads, etc. We both had a half sandwich with salad combination. (You can also have the half sandwich with soup of your choice.) I had the On the Hill... More

If you're into tamale cakes you must try them here!!! The burgers are awesome as well. In addition, there's bottomless coffee - No complaints from me!
