5 creative brunch spots in Baltimore to get you out of bed


Whoever said you can't get creative with some eggs and bacon? I'm almost certain no one has said that. These Baltimore brunch spots understand the true meaning of culinary arts, with their amazing food, creative décor and menu items.

Paper Moon
This Hampden wild spot has such a pure genius of shock value that would make John Waters proud. The diner boasts walls of headless Barbie dolls and Pez dispensers among other weird collectibles. This one-of-a-kind experience will leave your Sunday exciting and your belly fully after eating their delicious (mostly normal) meals.

Who's defining culture rules and saying you can't have Thai food for brunch? Umm no one, that's who. This Federal Hill Thai restaurant offers a unique brunch that is sure to wake up your taste buds. Offering a taste of Asia in the Mid-Atlantic, this brunch spot offers a Thai twist to traditional dishes such as their Thai Eggs Benedict.

The second home of the "Bad Ass Breakfast," founded by Sarah Simington and her mother Sherri 20 years ago boasts an insane decor on its walls, so fitting of even the craziest among us; after all, The Joker's photo is on the wall. While enjoying a more creative atmosphere away from the usual Federal Hill brunch spots, don't forget to order one of the most popular meals: Cap'n Crunch French Toast.

Plug Ugly's Publick House
Take a blast to the past at this 19-century themed pub, named after the West Baltimore street gang; although its location is further southeast in Canton. This bar reminiscent of a former time offers a unique experience for pubs and brunch, including its out-of-the-shell brunch items such as Rum Chata French Toast.

Fun finds you if you walk a little further from the majority of Fells Point brunch cafes and bars (not saying these other places aren't fun). At Johnny Rad's, you'll immediately know you are in a skater-themed bar as boards hang on the walls. The real thrill comes as you search further back where you can play skee ball while waiting for your food to be served.
