Our daughter lives in Hampden and it is an easy walk up to the shops. There are several little shops and stores to explore. Be sure to take in the ice cream at the Charmery. The Junque shop is quite a place.

This is a charming neighborhood in Baltimore; old row houses turned into shops, cherry trees lining the street and ice cream on the corner...The Charmery! The shoe store was a fun stop (forget the name) and they have candy as well!

Walked around today. Loved some of the stores. Was disappointed about some of the closed stores that have been closed for a while. Found some gems and found some cheesy stuff as well. Best store visited: Mud and Metal. Common Ground is an anchor store...More

sorry I didn't see your question last week. Most places can handle a table for 8. I would go to the Café Hun, though very busy they have large tables, good service, kid friendly, and a family friendly menu.
