Local locavores Jack and Zach do what not many restaurants are apparently willing to do: make their own veggie patties. They're fresh, packed with local ingredients, and served with pickled onions. You can choose from original, curry, or black bean. Try all of them if you're a connoisseur of the delicious vegetable burger patty. It's not the only reason to visit this offbeat café, but in our humble opinion it is the best reason. If their downtown location is not convenient, you may pick up their patties at Milk & Honey Market in Mount Vernon, the Daily Grind in Fells Point, and Whimz Café near Johns Hopkins Hospital.
