There are some locations around the world that are truly “foodie” destinations. They have a specialty, an iconic dish, or a food that the locals take pride in. Like, a LOT of pride! And in coastal Maryland, that food is crab—mostly in cake form! But don’t worry, we ate some other stuff, too. Here’s what Steve, my dad, and I all ate on our recent weekend excursion to Annapolis, Maryland!
This first restaurant came highly recommended, and we were definitely not disappointed! Be sure to save room for dessert while you’re here. They have Smith Island Cake on their menu, which is the official State Dessert of Maryland!
The Iron Rooster
This was our favorite restaurant in Annapolis! It’s the only place where we ate twice, and if we’d stayed in Annapolis another day, we would have eaten here again! They serve breakfast all day, which is fantastic because their breakfast is incredible!
Pro Tip! Show the server that you liked or checked into The Iron Rooster on Facebook and get a FREE Mason jar of bacon!
City Dock Coffee
I made an epic travel blogger fail! I went to an amazing coffee shop and forgot to take a photo! I got a seasonal specialty, the Cinnamon Spice White Mocha, and it was just the right thing for a rainy morning! You’ll have to go yourself and enjoy one next time you’re in Annapolis!
This one was fine, but it’s the one place we ate that I recommend skipping; there are too many other (better) restaurants in Annapolis!
Crab at every meal, seven-layer cakes with thick frosting, incredible coffee–which one are you most excited about?
