Breakfast between BWI & Baltimore

Riding a Red eye from L.A. and need a breakfest that will remind me that life is good. In town one morning and will be driving from BWI to the Aquarium. Looking for a large Choice of Omelettes and great home style potatoes, or better yet -- something local??? My Thanks,

  1. Rallo's Restaurant on Fort avenue in south Baltimore might fit the bill.

      What about Burke's Restaurant on the northwest corner of Light Street and Lombard? You can walk there from wherever you would park for the Aquarium. Good bacon omelette, plus they have the super-good, large breakfast sausage that I associate with Maryland's Eastern Shore. Kind of scary looking, but it's not.

        I've wondered about that place, since I see it every day on my way home from work. What's the food like aside from breakfast? I can't remember ever seeing any mention of it on here at all.

        1. re: JonParker

          Burke's has been mentioned here before. It's an old-fashioned Baltimore place. I like it a lot, but I'd probably recommend it more for the experience than for the food. I often go there for either breakfast or lunch when I have jury duty.

          1. re: JonParker

            Burke's has good, huge, homemade onion rings. Perfect with a beer.

            1. re: Raokay

              I like it better for breakfast than for lunch, though the onion rings are good. It's a good place to get what I refer to as a my mom's classic lunch, which is a club sandwich with chips and iced tea (in summer; coffee in winter). Or a Hot Turkey Commercial, which is actually better at Werner's.

      2. There's a Double T diner not far from BWI at the intersection of Route 2 and Mountain Road (Route 177).

        I've never been to the Honeybee diner in Glen Burnie on Route 3 but it looked very interesting, and very local.

        Is the Hollywood diner open on weekends? It's on Holliday Street, I believe.

        I've only been to the Double T, it's your typical Greek-owned restaurant with a ginormous menu of comfort foods. Breakfast is definitely hearty and filling. Not too bad.

          Honey Bee is comparable to Double T. Both fit the bill.

          1. re: elgringoviejo

            Neither of them are really on the way to Baltimore from BWI, though.

              I just don't get the recs for Double T. I've only been to the one on Route 40 and Rolling Road, but I thought it was terrible. I can go for diner food, but it needs to be edible.

              Frank's Diner in Jessup, which is a bit out of the way for this poster, is what a diner should be. I like Forest Diner in Ellicott City too. But Double T is just gross.

        2. Jimmy's on the square in Fells Point is one of my favorites.
