Independent coffee shop tucked away in the Bolton Hill neighborhood but its a big hit among the locals and the students in the area. My wife and I have been many times and they have very unique names to their sandwiches and they're all good. Its a tight space with city parking but its simply amazing and we love it.

My wife and I happened upon the On The Hill Cafe in Baltimore and enjoyed a fresh salad and black-bean burger. The food was delicious! The restaurant is smallish, with a 10 or so tables indoors and there is a brisk to-go business at lunch. I will go again!

With its black and white tiled counter and floor and ingredients stacking the shelves behind the prep area, the decor says traditional luncheonette, but the menu, artsy servers and adorable decorative elements reveal On The Hill to be a trendy cafe/diner. Emphasizing farm-to-table, high quality natural food, humane certified beef and turkey, vegan options, and other marks of modern cuisine,... More

Food is typically very good, coffee is always good, not great, but good. Staff is always first-rate. Definitely great for lunch or quick dinner.

We met with a student from MICA and he led us here for lunch as he was telling us that his meals have always been great. Yes, we definitely agreed with him. It is a small, trendy place with a huge selection of sandwiches, burgers, burritos, etc. with a great mix of ingredients. We had a Rutter burrito, Zola burger... More

On The Hill serves great sandwiches at good prices. My favorites are the burger and the BLT. There are a small number of tables outside and on a sunny day, it is a nice escape whether you live in the neighborhood or stop by from somewhere else. I happen to live in Bolton Hill, an historic neighborhood of Baltimore where... More

My wife and I were in Baltimore for a dental appointment today and while I was waiting I checked TripAdvisor for a good place to have lunch. I found On The Hill Cafe, which had excellent reviews so once we were done at the dentist, we headed to 1431 John Street which was just a little over a mile away.... More
