Reisterstown's restaurant scene features something for just about everyone. Aside from chain restaurants and fast food stops, there is much to discover when passing through Reisterstown on an empty stomach. Here's a veritable buffet of choices:
Best cafe within a shop: The coffee shop inside the Things You Love antiques store is very charming.
Best bagels: Bagel Bin & Deli is owned by bagel entrepreneur Corey Blanton, who owns the Bagel Bin Factory in Elkridge. That facility manufactures approximately 1.5 million bagels per year and supplies 15 restaurants. Consequently, the Reisterstown location has a broad menu, making it a choice place for many locals to start their day.
