Rich, flavorful, and just slightly sweet, the cappuccino has been extremely popular among American coffee drinkers since it first rose to prominence in the 1980s. True cappuccino enthusiasts have been known to scour entire cities in search of a version that meets their high standards.
Since November 8th is National Cappuccino Day, our real estate agents have been on the lookout for the best cafes and coffee shops in Baltimore. Whether you are a regular cappuccino drinker or just want something to celebrate the occasion, the following five shops are great places to pick up one of these delicious drinks.
- Filicori Zecchini Baltimore - 1 East Pratt Street, Baltimore, MD 21201
Filicori Zecchini Baltimore promises authentic Italian coffee, and according to patrons, they deliver. Their mouthwatering golden-brown cappuccino is capped with a thick layer of foam and a sprinkling of cocoa powder on top. Grabbing one for a morning pick-me-up is a great way to enjoy a little taste of Italy around our Baltimore homes for sale.
Anyone interested in visiting this charming café should know that you can get excellent prices on all drinks during their daily happy hour special. From 2 PM to close (usually around 3 PM), all their coffee drinks are available for just $2, including the cappuccino. That's a great deal, and it's available every single day!
- Ceremony Coffee Roasters - 1312 Point St., Baltimore, MD 21231
Ceremony Coffee Roasters is a well-known company in the Baltimore area. There are four locations scattered at spots of interest in the city, including Whitehall Mill, Cross Street Market, and Mt. Vernon. The address above is for their Harbor Point location, one of their larger standalone locations.
As their name implies, this company takes coffee very seriously. Their cappuccino is a creamy, dreamy delight, served in shining white cups brimming with creamy foam and a cocoa powder swirl on the top. In addition to their coffee and tea, they also serve upscale versions of simple breakfast items like oats, biscuits, and toast.
- Order & Chaos Coffee - 1410 Key Hwy, Baltimore, MD 21230
Order & Chaos Coffee's playful winking logo tells you everything you need to know about this café. Their irreverent yet effortlessly cool branding creates an experience that has helped them cultivate a strong following among Baltimore's teen and young adult crowds. This makes sense since they share a glass wall with the locally renowned Planit ad agency!
This shop serves an excellent 8-ounce cappuccino with just the right amount of milk foam on top. You can also get drip coffee, lattes and frappes, and specialty drinks like their Golden Milk Turmeric Latte.
- Spoons - 24 E. Cross St., Baltimore, MD 21230
Spoons is a small and unassuming-looking Cross Street café with a surprisingly sophisticated menu. Their 8-ounce cappuccino is one of their specialties and can be served with almond, soy, oat, or coconut milk for a small added fee upon request. They also serve a range of different teas and coffee drinks, as well as excellent scrambles, waffles, and biscuits.
However, most people come to this spot for their sumptuous brunch menu. You and your friends can sip on cappuccinos, morning cocktails, or mimosas and sample a collection of elaborate breakfast dishes such as Huevos Verdes, Risotto Benedict, and Fried Oysters and Grits.
- Teavolve - 1401 Aliceanna St., Baltimore, MD 21231
A teahouse like Teavolve might not be the first place you think of when you're looking for good coffee, but in this case, you won't be disappointed.

If you're looking for a little food to go with your drink, you can purchase one of their egg dishes or some waffles on the side. Their dessert crepes are a particular favorite of staff and patrons alike, especially the Nutty Banana Crepe.
