Every gluten-free, dairy-free, meat-free, sugar-free, processed food-free Baltimorean can feel right at home at this holistic cafe in Hampden. It even has room for your dog's dietary needs, providing treats and a bowl of water outside for "dogs with well-behaved people." Breathe Bookstore Cafe's Indian-inspired menu boasts "100 percent vegetarian, many vegan, gluten-free, raw and Ayurvedic choices." In fact, almost half of its main dishes are vegan, with all sandwiches available on gluten-free bread or as a bagelwich—the double whammy—both gluten-free and vegan. With the added bonus of natural sweeteners, organics, and no white sugar or flour, it is a refreshing departure from the one sad diet-friendly option on most places' menus.
