Paper Moon Cafe, Baltimore MD

I was lucky enough to have a local show me the joys of the Paper Moon Cafe in Baltimore. It's a very cool, 24-hour diner with excellent, but cheap eats no matter what time you or your party roll in.

The outside of the building is painted in bright blue and green with a welcoming archway displaying the name of the establishment. I got excited as soon as we turned the corner because this places just beckons to you if you're near it.

I debated between the Monte Cristo sandwich and the Breakfast Bread Pudding. Both sounded delicious, so I asked the waitress for help. At first she tried to say either was a good choice, but eventually I got down to the skinny and pried out of her that the Bread Pudding is pretty unpopular, so I went with the Breakfast Monte Cristo.

And I'm glad I did! Look at how beautiful this sandwich was. I ordered mine with bacon and it was served with a side of maple syrup. I poured all the syrup all over my sandwich and ate it with a knife and fork, but you could certainly pick up the sandwich and dip to your heart's content.

Donal ordered a side of the Paper Moon's sweet potato fries. I gotta say, these were the best sweet potato fries I've ever had in my life. I think they dust them in rice flour before frying them, because they're so crispy and light.

I wish the Paper Moon Cafe was a chain that spread to Philadelphia, but unfortunately it's a sole property and it belongs in Baltimore. I know I'll be back, it's just a question of when.

    A sandwich you can pour syrup all over. Oh I feel my lovely arteries clogging from here, and I love it.

    I grew up in the deep deep south Alabama and Georgia. Paper Moon's Pecan Pie here is some of the best I have ever had...

    Sadly, the diner is no longer 24/7..
    This has put a hole in my heart. They now seat until midnight on weekdays, and 2am on Friday & Saturday.

    I think this is the same one in Puerto Rico if i'm not sure, this place is pretty neat.
