The Bun Shop is a haven for students in Baltimore and because of their strong coffees and late closing hours (3a.m.!). The coffees here are great and they all pair well with what they’re known for: their sweet and savoury buns.
A favourite pairing here is their Vietnamese Ice Coffee along with an empanada. For those who like a hot cup of coffee, give their Honey Macchiato a try or their house blend coffee.
Order & Chaos Coffee claims they make a “creative cup of coffee” thanks to the advertising agency, Planit, that runs the joint. No, there are no ads that come with your coffee – just some terrific coffees that change according to the season.

3 Bean Coffee focuses on the three beans that are in their drinks at this hip joint: coffee, cacao, and vanilla. This neighbourhood-friendly shop has something for everyone: great coffees, teas, pastries, pies, and seasonal-based specialty drinks menu.
A favourite pick off the specialty drink menu is their Honey Graham Latte and pair it with a slice of their fantastic pies.
Common Ground is where all the hip people in Baltimore congregate for the best mix of great vibes and coffees. With their hand-painted murals on the wall and friendly baristas, Common Ground has a very inviting warmth and charm to it that keeps people coming back.
