Trip Advisor Unbelievable
Feb 12, 2015 by: Becky S from Cumberland, Maryland
Marks is unbelievable. In a small town, such a classy little coffee spot. And amazing breakfast menu. Great staff. Mark is a very personable owner as well.

Trip Advisor Cold, windy day, piping hot soup!

Driving from Annapolis to Ohio and decided to stop in Cumberland. Searched for 'coffee shop' and Cafe Mark had lots of stars. $4.17 for a large Earl Grey tea and a cup of Creamy Asparagus Soup. The soup was piping hot the way I like it. Nice flavor and consistency to this soup, not too thick or thin, chunks of mushroom and asparagus. Perfect after a short walk in a cold wind. Cafe Mark is on a pedestrian street. Public lots nearby, but I got a one hour slot on the street. I'd stop in again.

Trip Advisor Great little cafe

I've been here a couple times so far and I've loved it everytime! It's a great place to get together with friends or bring the family.

Trip Advisor Cute place, food mediocre

The restaurant is charming and sweet as are everyone we met that works there. However, if you are going to open a restaurant without table servers, the menu needs help. So many choices and rules that figuring out what to order seemed unnecessarily complicated for the mid-level and not inexpensive prices. A tuna melt that was thin and unmemorable for about $7? A panini arrived, 3/4 of a circular bread of some sort, cut into fourths with a fourth missing? Tithing? We came in as a group of seven and we all had to stand in line and order and figure out the "choices." Tedious. Get table servers, improve the recipes and make the portions a bit larger. We didn't expect much in Cumberland, but this restaurant was so charming physically we did expect more.

Trip Advisor Good, but don't go if in a hurry.

Good coffee, sandwiches, and desserts. Atmosphere is cozy and hip. Most of staff are very friendly. A bit pricey but nice quality food and decent portions. Don't come here for a quick coffee. Only one person taking orders at counter while rest of staff stands there and people are queuing up down the bar. No refills on coffee unless you order food.
