New Severna Park cafe has homemade bread


September 20, 2001|By Elizabeth Large | Elizabeth Large,SUN RESTAURANT CRITIC

Any restaurant that bakes its own bread deserves notice. In this case, it's the new Cafe Boulevard at 548 Baltimore-Annapolis Blvd. in Severna Park. The food is casual, mostly sandwiches, salads and homemade soups, with a few hot entrees like quiche, turkey divan and boeuf bourgignon. Just about everything is made on the premises and priced under $10.

Cafe Boulevard is open Tuesday through Saturday for breakfast, lunch and early supper. There's also a coffee and smoothie bar.

More than martinis

Sure, you can go to the hip, new Sonar in Canton for a cosmopolitan or a dirty martini, but the bar and lounge at 3000 O'Donnell St. also offers specialty coffee drinks and desserts from Sweet Indulgence.

Sonar is open every night from 6 p.m. to 2 a.m., with a DJ to provide background music for your French-press coffee and cheesecake or fruit tart.

Pizza no more

Pisa Pizza Buffet, the all-you-can-eat pizza place in the York Road shopping center across from the Timonium Fairgrounds, has closed a couple of years after it opened. In its place look for a Panera Bread Company to open. That's the bakery-cafe chain previously known as Au Bon Pain.
