The Papermoon Diner has been a Baltimore favorite since 1994.It's located in central Baltimore City, at 227 W 29th St  Baltimore, MD 21211.

  This is a place that any visitor to Baltimore needs to stop. The food is pretty good, and the desserts are amazing. The service has always been good, too. But the best part is the decor and the menus. The decor is something you'll never find anywhere else. It's painted in bright and neon colors, and there are literally tens of thousands of toys glued, stapled and fixed to the walls and ceilings! In fact, we saw a number of toys we had as kids in the 1960s. (ooops! Age revelation here).

  The menus are all inserted into the covers of old books, like children's storybooks or novels.

The website says: The Papermoon Diner offers an eccentric, eclectic, technicolor dining experience that might be best described as “comfort food meets Baltimore with a twist.” We're vegetarian and raging-carnivore friendly, with a jam-packed menu featuring everything from meat loaf to crab quesadillas, from vegan nachos to peanut butter and jelly French toast, from homemade chili to shrimp and grits—and so much more. (Seriously—we didn't even get started on our

Gift/Memorial Suggestions

Several of our friends have lost loved ones (human and pets) and we found that one of the best ways to honor their memory is to give to an animal charity.
What better way to recognize a life of love, than by giving another life a chance for love?
We donate to many animal rescues, but because we volunteer with
DC Weimaraner Rescue and Coast-to-Coast Dachshund Rescue, those are our 2 favorites.
Consider giving the chance of life to a dog or cat.
