Breakfast in Annapolis

Any suggestions?

  1. Well-done standard deli breakfast fare at Chick & Ruth's.

    1. Cafe Normandy on Main Street. Good omelettes.

      1. Double T diner on West Street and Solomon Island Road.

        1. Good bagels at Bagels And... in the shopping center at West St and Rt 2 (diagonal from Double T). Ok, so that's technically Parole not Annapolis, but it's still pretty close.

          1. Thanks all.

            Chick and Ruth's was as advertised.

              Chick and Ruth's is a trip. I question the wisdom of naming sandwiches after politicians though -- I can't imagine ordering a George W. Bush (and I'm sure there are those with differing views than mine who would be equally put off by some of the other selections).

              In my memory it was decent diner food, but the atmosphere is just bizarre.

            2. I think chic & ruths is a must for anyone in annapolis. We go any time we are in the area. Never done breakfast but the lunch's are great. We loved the pickle slices they served. and they have liver n onions.

              1. The best places where residents of Annapolis actually go are Main Ingredient on Forest Drive; the Amish Market in Harbor Center or Grumps also on Forest Drive. No one I know goes to Chick and Ruth's, although Cafe Normandie isn't a bad idea, although the pancakes are like frisbees!

                  SHHHH!....Chic& Ruth's is a fine deli.... The Main Ingredient and Penn Dutch Market are not "Downtown" ....Thankfully!!

                2. Academy Bagels in the shopping center with Grauls (corner of Rowe Blvd and Taylor Rd -- access from Taylor) makes good bagels. They were originally a franchise of Bagels And... but now are on their own.

                    Make sure you avoid the deli counter at Grauls b/c I've heard some scary stories.

                      I think this is really Naval Bagels.

                    2. Go to The Kitchen on Prince George St. Just behind Middletons Tavern. Best Breakfast in Annapolis.

                      1. Buddy Restaurant on West Street gives you the best food for the dollar. It's an all you can eat buffet which includes seafood and the drink is Bloody Marys or Champagne. My wife and I go there once a month for Breakfast.
