The Hollywood Diner is not only known for its fresh ingredients but has national fame as the diner depicted in movie Diner, directed by Barry Levinson (native of Baltimore). The Hollywood Diner has also made appearances in Sleepless in Seattle, Enemy of the State, Liberty Heights, Homicide and The Wire. Maybe next time you go in you will sit in the booth where Mickey Rourke argues with Kevin Bacon and Daniel Stern. This is where we sat!
The diner itself boasts fading movie memorabilia, pink and grey marble and chrome exterior. Now this diner isn’t set up like your typical diner- you order at the counter first and then take a seat. When your food is ready they bring it to you.
The menu features scratch-made foods (sausages, buttermilk pancakes, sweet potato biscuits, chorizo sausage gravy, house ground burgers, hand cut fries and chips, salad dressings, mayonnaise, house roasted turkeys and beef and ham, house smoked turkey). They also feature Zeke's coffee and have a full espresso bar for those looking to get their Latte and Mocha fix featuring their own blend of Espresso.
The Hollywood Diner is the perfect stop for before or after your visit the Baltimore’s Farmer’s Market because the brunch menu features locally produced foods purchased fresh from the Farmer’s market that morning. Also you are instantly cooled off as you enter from heat and humidity of Baltimore.
As you enter each Sunday morning you are greeted with a board listing the specials for the morning. On this particular morning, the specials were a Zucchini, Squash & Parmesan Frittata with hen’s nest eggs with fresh market vegetables, served with a sweet potato biscuit and home fries ($6.75) plus Banana Pancakes with sausage ($6.75).
