Tiny place? Yes however great food, fast service, you have to interact with the order taker to customize your meal to your liking. This is a unique thing and create a nice feeling about the love for food and re-set the standards for customer care...More

We recently stopped in On the Hill Cafe on our way to BWI. The cafe is small - maybe seating for 16 or so inside - which we found charming. We tried the almond croissant, a breakfast burrito, and a spinach and feta breakfast sandwich,...More
