Great crab cakes in several styles without any breading--perfect for my wife who is gluten intolerant. Food was prepared to our specifications and we all walked away happy. Loved the Tex-Mex!

A coworker and I went for a fast lunch so we stopped in here - we both had never been. Granted it was fast the service was good but the food was just ok. First bite of my crab cake was a shell, I know that can happen anywhere but it didn't get much better from there. Cream of crab soup had a good amount of crab in it but not enough flavor to rave about. I won't go back again.

Yelp led us to this place tonight after deciding that 2 hours was too long to wait for dinner at a local famous place! Boy am I glad we find Crab Cake Cafe. Wonderful (but small ) crab cakes with lump crab meat and very little filler. The cream of crab soup was great also - very close to expensive restaurant soup. The french fries and sweet potato fries are fresh and wonderfully made. It's a small place in a small strip shopping center but well worth finding! They need to add locations where more people will find them by accident!. The staff was also very friendly and wonderful.
We will be back and soon!

What a fabulous surprise! We were in town for the Naval Academy Graduation and are glad that we looked to TripAdvisor for a lunch recommendation near us. The owner was on site and provided great recommendations on what to eat. The crab cakes are just that - all crab with no fillers or breading! There were many varieties, and they were out to the table in record time. We had the incredible Cream of Crab soup which was served with cheddar corn muffin - both are delicious. We had a variety of crab cake sandwiches - each was excellent. The staff is remarkably welcoming and warm. It was wonderful to hear the vision of the restaurant and plans for its future from the owner - we wish them all the best. Crab Cake Cafe is a place that we would frequent if we lived here and we will be back whenever in Annapolis.

If you want a really good crab cake this is the place to go. Very good crab soup, both Maryland and bisque but the crab cakes (several styles) were excellent.
On the other hand, this was not a fine dining experience. The place is clean and modern in a shopping center. If you're looking for ambience this is not your place. Excellent crab cakes? YES!
