I went to Carma's for the first time this evening. The inside was small but cozy with about 6 tables. The cafe filled up around 7:00 pm on a Wednesday evening with what appeared to be a lot of Johns Hopkins students and adults from...More

This is a small, charmingly low-rent coffee shop located near Johns Hopkins University. Like much else in Baltimore, the decor and the staff are quirky and unique to the city. The menu of coffees is basic, but the coffee and the flavors (try the caramel...More

We go to Carma's regularly, and the food is always great. Usually, I go for breakfast, and it is spot on. The homemade vanilla yogurt is probably the best in Baltimore! It is great on its own or with the granola or mixed with the...More

I had one of the daily specials, Spicy Jack (or Jeremy, whichever one had hummus), and it was delicious. As a group this place would be great but as a solo traveler I would've given 5 stars had they had WiFi.

This is a perfect cafe in the city: you walk down into it and its very small. They are a permanent and changing menu with scrumptious coffee. They have oatmeal, bagels, frittatas and my favorite: Apple and Brie Sandwich. It also a great place to...More

We have eaten here a couple of times, as the cafe is close to the JHU campus and it was a convenient place to eat lunch after visiting our son. The cafe serves fresh dishes made on premises. Their quiches are delicious and their sandwiches...More

An absolutely amazing lunch spot. Although it's very small it has a lot of options for great meals and incredible coffee. We were in town for our niece's graduation from Johns Hopkins University. She recommended it and treated us to a great great lunch. I'm...More
