Stopped by for breakfast when we went to visit the University of Maryland Baltimore County. I still smile when I remember the breakfast I had. It's just like I would make it myself at home..except here, I was being served. I ordered these very delicious home fries, 3 scrambled eggs made with artichokes grape tomatoes, bell peppers and the fluffiest... More

I went there recently for coffee. The place was packed. Parking in rear. They have an upstairs floor, which helps, and free samples of bread. Better then going out of my way to Starbucks.

I've only eaten there once and it was for breakfast. It was very good. I love their baristas. The coffee is very good. All of the baked good are great. Service is also good. Since the renovations there is now a nice place to sit on the ground floor.

We had been to Atwaters several times in the past at the recommendation of our daughter, and we thoroughly enjoyed their creative menu items (largely sandwiches, soups, and baked goods) . On those occasions, we ordered at the front desk and then, after receiving our order, walked up a flight of stairs where the dining area was. This time we... More

The naturally leavened breads and cakes are made from locally grown organic wheat flours and are excellent. Particularly good is the cranberry-pecan bread at this time of year as it is not always available. Also delicious are the lemon flavored mini-cupcakes. The bakery now has an extended breakfast and lunch menu and seating is available in up-stairs and down-stairs areas.... More

I have food sensitivities and requested that an item be removed from my salad and that the dressing be placed on the side. The salad was served with the allergen and the dressing was on the salad. When asked, the staff corrected it without a hassle. The food was delicious. It is very hard to find a restaurant that takes... More

Love the kale salad with buttermilk dressing and preserved lemons. Wish they sold the dressing in jars. Try the iced tea with lavender syrup - yum! So many good things to try - homemade soups, breads, interesting salads, Trickling Springs milk and smoothies. I recently ordered pie dough from the main bakery downtown. It was delivered the next morning -... More

ATWATER's is the best! Fresh food, all farm to table. Their souls are unmatched. Their sandwiches are artistic and I bet you've never had the combinations before. There's always fresh chocolate milk as well as other drinks. The desserts are divine. Chocolate Stout cupcake is to die for. I would recommend ATWATER's to anyone wanting more than boring and ordinary.
