Set on a cool tree-lined street in Northwest Baltimore's Mount Washington neighborhood, this wonderful Middle Eastern cafe called Desert Cafe offersdare we say it?an oasis of calm amid the bustle of daily urban life. The spicy fare, which includes an amazing Mango Curry Chicken Salad, is perfect for lunch or dinner. And with shiny metal stars hanging from the ceiling and colorful pillows scattered about, it's hard to imagine a more hospitable place for a relaxing meal.
My wife and I visited Desert Cafe on Saturday (12/7/13) and we had a fantastic time. The servers, dancer and manager were all very friendly and wanted to make sure we had a good time. The food was extremely good and the prices are fair. Plus, it is BYOB so that is a rare treat (in my opinion). The lamb quesadilla and curry chicken salad are the best. We look forward to visiting again.
Great hummus (try their different flavors - although they sound bizarre they're good) and nice staff. We go here fairly frequently - my only complaint is their quiche is wonderful but they are frequently out of it.
The nut torte is to die for.
I love the Desert Cafe! The food and people are great and it has a cozy atmosphere. The hummus comes highly recommended. The chef is always coming up with new recipes that are always worth a try. Adn the deserts are the best- especially the Berger Cookie Cheesecake!
Whomever said it was expensive must be smoking crack, because I was shocked by the low prices, and being BYO helps keep the cost down as well.
They have such nice staff, the food is great, and the belly dancing is a great touch. I didn't have to wait for a table, and the BYOB really makes this a reasonable place after all. I love the spinach pie.
It isn't often these days that you can find a place to dine where you feel the fancy and the fun. The dishes on the menu, especially the weekend specials, are the fancy. The atmosphere and the belly dancing are the fun. The prices are beyond reasonable and the restaurant is BYOB, leaving you the opportunity to purchase your alochol and not get overcharged for it. There is outdoor seating for the warm weather and a second level that used for seating in the winter, or private parties at any time. This restaurant is a MUST and should be a favorite for all.
Words cannot describe how superb any meal is at The Desert Cafe. From start to finish, you feel welcomed and a part of the family. When deciding on an appetizer, it is a sure bet that the Hummous Sampler is the way to go. Make sure to share that with a friend, because you won't be able to resist the soups. Any of the entrees will tickle your tongue and as the previous rater said, don't forget about dessert. With different desserts every week, it definitely is a place you want to frequent. Don't miss it!
Desert cafe is comfortable and welcoming. The food is truly out of this world! Nice portions, not like many resturants where the portions are so big that you can't even save room for dessert... and you WANT to save room for dessert at Desert Cafe, because the dessert is as wonderful as the food. If you haven't been there, get there, it's a true asset to Baltimore =)
