Set on a cool tree-lined street in Northwest Baltimore's Mount Washington neighborhood, this wonderful Middle Eastern café called Desert Cafe offers—dare 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.
