This is a fun place for a Cuban brunch. During warm weather, there's an outdoor seating section overlooking the water. There is a bar with games like shuffleboard and the atmosphere is lively at night. Brunch is great, but make a reservation if you plan to go because the wait can be long! The meal is a fixed price and you can add bottomless mimosas and bloody marys for just a little extra.

The best Indian food we've got! This place has a fully vegetarian, mostly vegan menu AND a separate menu with meat dishes on it. Definitely something for everyone here. The lunch buffet is AMAZING. The owner is known to visit tables from time to time and has some fascinating stories to share.

By far the best vegan restaurant around, loved by vegans and non-vegans alike. Absolutely amazing food and staff. The portion sizes are perfect - you always leave feeling satisfied but not overfilled or weighted down. Delicious desserts and a fun brunch on the weekends, too.

This vegan bakery is exceptional! They have won tons of awards, including Cupcake Wars on more than one occasion (competing against non-vegan cupcake bakeries, nonetheless!). This is always a fun place to stop when in DC, and well worth the trip from Columbia.

Probably one of the most upscale restaurants that Baltimore has to offer. Expect an extravagantly high bill at the end of this multi-course fixed price meal, with optional wine pairing. If you're celebrating a special occasion, this luxurious restaurant will not disappoint. Make a reservation well in advance if you want to get in.

Wegmans is a much nicer, but more expensive, grocery store than the local Weis. If you want some more difficult to find ingredients, you will have better luck here. They also have an entire second floor of lounge areas for eating, enjoying a coffee from their cafe, or reading a book near the fireplace.

Aldi is a unique type of grocery store that passes along savings to customers by cutting overhead costs. Bring a quarter if you want to use a cart (you get it back when you return it) and either bring your own bags or expect to pay a little to buy some when you checkout. They have most of what you may need and carry off-brands so you get a much lower price. They have organic produce and even freshly baked goods. By far my favorite place to do the regular shopping, but expect it to be crowded!
