I am out of town, so it has been diff to get internet access.

It would be great to have a list:  Obviously 'Spro and Artifact/Woodberry should go on the list.  

We have not been to Linwoods, but it is on our short list of restaurants to visit.  Where are their beans from?

(linwoods) i am not sure where he gets them now.  he was serving a nice french roast drip brew and a very competent espresso last time i ate there.  the drip was definitely a new world coffee but i am not sure where he gets the beans.  i will ask next time i am there.  he also has a decent and not ridiculously priced wine list.  food is very consistent and very good.  

even though i am a newbie, i would solicit an update on Baltimore's best places for coffee.  my wife says our house.  stone mill bakery makes a decent americano and great high end breakfast but is priced at the top end.  i like daily grind, and had solid espresso at the new canton location and falls road.  fells point is good but somewhat uneven.

I have been trying to think back to which Baltimore restaurants have good coffee, and I think I will have to be prospective about any contributions to the list I make.

On another note, I went to SMEDLY'S in Fells Point (Corner of Fleet and Wolfe) to buy an Aeropress (which I have been enjoying quite frequently, thank you very much) and was surprised to find that they use an Aeropress to brew their coffee.

The weakness, IMO, is that they brew Illy (preground, I think).

Does anybody know what ever happened to Jay's Shave Ice.  I went there a couple of times, and then I didn't get up there for a few months and it was gone...

I tried to take my son there a few months ago.  What a disappointment.  The least Jay could do is update the website!

Jay opened Spro, in the Towson library, a while ago.  Jay's Shave Ice has been closed for over a year, I believe.  This is all updated on the website.  I am still trying to get someone to make me "Breakfast in Bed!" ....

It is indeed delicious.

Which website would this be that's updated?

All was not lost.  We made it to 'Spro.  Then we went in the library and read a couple books.  Still a good time.
