Lunch At The Red Canoe

Whatever the weather, it’s always a good day to have lunch at The Red Canoe. This afternoon I treated myself to their special which was a turkey sandwich with mozzarella and fennel slaw on toast. It was delicious. 

The Red Canoe has been a popular spot since opening in 2004. Located in the Hamilton/ Lauraville area of North East Baltimore, the cafe was purchased last October by Josie Rhodes and Tina Perry. They continue to carry the cafe’s award winning muffins and weekly children’s hour for preschoolers and their parents, while establishing new events such as First Friday’s featuring a different artist each month and weekend brunch specials. I had the opportunity to have brunch here on New Year’s Day and Tina’s biscuits and gravy were the best I have ever tasted. 

The Red Canoe also houses a children’s bookstore which focuses on the very young with a unique selection of picture books and toys. During the warmer months the cafe opens its deck and yard for outdoor dining. It is a pleasant way to spend a summer afternoon.

The Red Canoe is known for its good food, good coffee and good people which makes owners Josie and Tina happy.  You’ll be happy too when you come to The Red Canoe.
