What's good, Baltimore?

Just looking for some simple spots for the weekend.
Faidley's Seafood in Lexington Market (Lunch)
Cafe Hon (Lunch)
Mama's on the Half Shell (Dinner)
Abacrombie Fine Food (Brunch)
Sylvan Beach (Ice Cream/Coffee)
Faidley's Seafood - Definitely
Cafe Hon - Not worth the trip. Not bad, but not great
Mama's on the Half Shell - Very good
Abacrombie Fine Food Never had brunch there, but very good.
If you like Greek, I'd hit Samos- best salad dressing! (closed on Sundays & also closes around this time of summer for vacation so might check first) I wouldn't go out of my way for Cafe Hon.
I agree with most of the above. Cafe Hon would be the one I skip if time was in question.
Definitely stop by Sylvan Beach for ice cream and good vibe. If you are planning a trip this weekend, the Artscape festival is in the neighborhood. Sylvan Beach usually has a booth at the festival, as well as the shop on Preston Street. Try the Key Lime Pie. Unbeleivable.
Cafe Hon is fun for us locals to go from time to time to get some good meatloaf. But not worth "wasting" a meal on.
You should go to Hampden however, but eat at Golden West.
If you find yourself in Fells Point, walk up from the water on Broadway Street.
Stop in the second Broadway Market, get a coddie.
Keep walking as you eat your appetizer and to Eastern Ave and take a right.
About a block on the left is a small taco place called Tortilleria.
Great fresh made tortillas, chips and tacos.
Made it to everything on the original list but Hon. Abacrombie was superb. Mama's was very good, though we missed the brunch by minutes. :( Faidley's definitely has the best crab cakes on earth. Well, from at least from my short-lived crabcake tasting experience.
Artscape is amazing. Glad we went, even with the rain. A total blast. Will go again.
