2. Cava Mezze - Harbor East Baltimore
Editor’s note: Establishment is permanently closed
Cava Mezze’s claim to fame is being named the ‘Best Brunch in Maryland’. You can easily verify that claim the moment you come over for some poached eggs to go with your crispy Brussel sprouts creamed with harissa hollandaise. Complete your meal with biscuits and gravy on the side. A recommended vegan alternative to the latter would be the chickpea hash. With the 'Brunch-All-You-Can’ promo still up for grabs, eating out has never been this good.
