Alice's Cafe

coffee cupA Dining@Large reader wants to know what's up with the hours at Alice's Cafe on Main Street in Reisterstown.

"We ate there several times when they first opened and the food was always top notch with decent prices and awesome service," the reader writes. "Yesterday, when I passed them by I thought I read the sign to say that they are now only opened on Sundays and Tuesdays? Is that right?"

No, turns out that's not right. 

I reached owner Cindy Meneses, who said the cafe is open Tuesdays through Sundays, from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. At the end of May through summer, she'll be open 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. on weekends.

Meneses experimented for a while with Monday hours, but found she didn't get that much business -- and she didn't especially like working seven days a week.

Thanks for the info, LV. I'm the reader who was wondering. Now I'm glad to learn that not only can I still go to brunch at Alices, but early dinner soon. Good news!

How is Alice's, serious meals, more for snack and chat?

lots of nice brunch selections on weekends - not sure about weekdays. Lunch was a couple of soups, can't remember if I had lobster or crab bisque but it was awesome. Very substantial sandwiches, good salads. Can't remember if there were any heavy entree things or specials, it's been a while. But everything I've had there has been a hit. Great desserts too.

If you're going to try it, get reservations, it's really teeny in there and fills up amazingly fast. (To the point where you'll be wondering why all these people have time to lunch during the work day!)

Thanks, couldn't find a website

I USE TO GO THERE OFTEN WHEN THEY FIRST OPENED...BUT WHEN THE OWNERS HAD TO SELL DUE TO A HEALTH PROBLEM I SAW A BIG CHANGE IN THE DESSERTS AND THE LUNCH ITEMS- WE HAVEN'T BEEN BACK IN ABOUT A YEAR
