While some locals may choose to head into downtown Baltimore
for dining and entertainment, Rosemont plays host to some excellent eateries and local businesses. Step just outside the neighborhood borders for access to even more great restaurants and nightlife to get the most out of this area of Baltimore.
Cakes by Cynthia is the crown jewel of Rosemont. The bakery has been featured on "Wedding Cake Wars," and its scrumptious dessert offerings range from birthday and wedding cakes to its famous pudding jars. Try the strawberry banana pudding jar for a decadent treat. No dining area exists in the bakery, and the hours are limited, so be sure to get there early if you want to calm your sweet tooth.
Get the food truck experience when Everything Turkey stops by the Rosemont neighborhood. Not only does this food truck serve up savory lunch options, but it also helps the community. Part of the nonprofit group Women in Transition, the food truck business gives women in crisis access to job training, support, and employment. With burgers, subs, salads, sausages, and hot dogs, the Everything Turkey truck serves something for everyone, but don't forget to add one of the signature sides to your order. Collard greens, candied yams, and macaroni and cheese keep the locals coming back for more.
Just on the edge between the Rosemont and Walbrook
neighborhoods sits China Garden. This neighborhood restaurant may have an unassuming facade, but the food inside makes China Garden a neighborhood favorite. Grab a meal to go from the takeout counter, or sit down to lunch or dinner. Battered chicken wings and shrimp rolls top the list of favorites with local residents. China Garden keeps its doors open 24 hours, so you can satisfy your hunger for Chinese food any time of day or night.
