Baltimore Nightlife

Best Drinky Brunch

Lil’ Phil’s Tavern

706 S. Broadway, (410) 342-7445,

Lil’ Phil’s is probably the unshowiest bar in Fells Point. In fact, we would’ve walked right by it had it not been for the chalkboard sign advertising $10 unlimited mimosas and Marys until 3 p.m. And we’re oh so glad we stopped in. The mimosas are delish (we’re talking pints) and replaced without asking by the friendly bartender. There’s free pool from noon till 6 p.m. on Saturdays, and $1 Jello shots—strong, judging by the bite—in a variety of colors and flavors. But this is about brunch, and the brunch menu is creative, cheap, and served until 10 p.m.—wait, what? A drinker’s dream. Hound on home fries or an English muffin for less than two bucks, or step up to the brunchwich—ever seen a brunchified chicken/bacon sandwich?—a burger with a fried egg, or a deep-fried cod cake, all served with home fries. If brunch food is not your thing and you still get the mimosa munchies (which you will), the extensive and absurdly cheap lunch menu (hamburger, chips, and pickle for less than $5; veggie sandwich with same for less than $3) is available too. Plus, the folks there are just plain nice.
