Adams Morgan Brunch DC

Our Favorite Brunch Spot

Fells Point has one of Baltimore’s best brunch scenes there are countless restaurants to choose from and they are all remarkably good. Teavolve Cafe & Lounge is our favorite neighborhood café that happens to serve the best brunch in the area. We love the cozy café vibes, friendly staff, and healthy (and delicious) food. Brunch is from 9:00 am 4:00 pm on Saturday, and 9:00 am 6:00 pm on Sunday. The brunch menu is nothing short of amazing, and there are plenty of options to please everyone. Enjoy everything from breakfast classics, delectable French toast, pancakes, and waffles to delicious salads and paninis. For those looking to enjoy a boozy brunch, glasses and pitchers of mimosas, Bloody Mary’s, and house-made sangria are half-priced.


Adams Morgan Happy Hour DC

Our Favorite Happy Hour Spot

Similar to the brunch scene, the Fells Point happy hour scene is one of Baltimore’s best. We love a good deal and anything waterfront, so Thames Street Oyster House is a winner. This classic oyster house has an extensive raw bar menu and serves some of the best seafood in the area. Happy hour is served on Monday and Tuesday from 5:00 7:00 pm, and on Wednesday through Friday from 4:00 7:00 pm. There are specials on local beers, wine, and liquor, all for $4 or $5, and a pair of house oyster shooters for $8. The happy hour drinks combined with any of the starters or raw bar items make for a delicious and affordable happy hour on the water.

With Fells Point being the waterfront neighborhood that it is, it is only fitting that they have a surf-inspired boutique workout studio, BeachFit, and we love it.

Rookie Surf, Surf Mavericks, and Pipeline are the main surf-inspired workout classes. Cycle + Surf and Beach Burn are two other specialty classes that incorporate surfing fundamentals into cycling and barre classes. Drop-in classes at BeachFit are $19, but there are a variety of class packs and memberships to choose from. For new clients, the Intro BeachFit membership is just $49 per month and allows for unlimited classes for three months.
