When Cafe Fili opened its doors to the public two months ago, its chefs introduced Baltimore eaters to a style of healthy eating inspired by the Mediterranean. It touts enjoyment of fresh, flavorful, herb-seasoned foods with healthy fats and lean proteins, many of them plant-based. So whether you're a vegetarian, a meat-eater, or land somewhere in between, there are plenty of tasty, colorful options at Cafe Fili.
When you swing by for breakfast, sink your teeth into a slice of avocado toast dusted with za'atar seasoning and topped with an organic fried egg, or grab an apple croissant to-go. At lunch, enjoy the Fatoosh salad with romaine, cucumbers, tomato, parsley and mint, and crispy pita chips on top, all drizzled with a signature house dressing. You can also dig into a grilled cheese stuffed with short rib and caramelized onions. If you want to mix and match a few mezze plates, options range from hummus with roasted shaved lamb on top to baba ghanouj, an eggplant dip served with pita chips. The same inventive eats are on the menu for happy hour and dinner, and you can enjoy them with a cocktail, a glass of wine, or a beer later in the day.
