Coffee shops tend to all blend together in Baltimore, and with the local dominance of Zeke’s, a good cup of coffee is no longer hard to find regardless of the neighborhood you’re in. So it’s the little extras and attention to detail that sets Spoons Coffee Café ahead of the rest. Spoons features the most inviting coffee-culture space in town, filled with comfy couches, coffee tables, and plenty of bench seating. Then there’s its menu full of omelet and Benedict options and crazy good bagels. Add in the fact that Spoons roasts its own beans upstairs, and you have one answer to the age-old question: Why live in Federal Hill?
