Miss Shirley’s is a micro-chain in the B-more area that is a local Brunch-time favorite. Open every day until 3pm and serving mostly Southern-inspired, seafood-centric cuisine, I found it so satisfying that I dined there two mornings in a row! Order the Benne Seed Chicken ‘N Waffles (Benne Seed Fried Boneless Breast of Chicken Pieces & Honey-Mustard Aioli on White Cheddar-Green Onion Waffles with Peppadew-Jalapeno Butter) or the Crab & Fried Green Tomato Eggs Benedict (Poached Eggs, Jumbo Lump Crab Meat & Corn Hash with Roasted Red Pepper Hollandaise Sauce.) Their signature Bloody Mary is one of the best I’ve had, with a half-dozen skewered, pickled vegetables resting on top of the Old-Bay dusted rim.
Miss Shirley’s. 750 E. Pratt Street, Baltimore. ph.(410) 528-5373
During our two weeks in Baltimore, I spent quite a few evenings wandering the cobbled streets of historic Fells Point, first inhabited in 1670. It has the same charm as Georgetown or Old Town Alexandria — and an endless array or quirky shops, coffee houses and restaurants.
