Sunday for brunch
Nov 11, 2013 by: johncatworth from stafford, va
Found Café Mark in the Cumberland downtown after Mass at St Patrick's and were delighted with the food and atmosphere. Service was prompt and friendly, although its a small place and the four of us had to split into two groups, it wasn't a problem. Excellent ingredients - my Cajun omelette had excellent Andouille in it, and the southern breakfast excellent black forest ham. The only ding was that they had run out of French toast, but substituted pancakes for the kids and they were fine with that.
Nice stop for Sunday brunch

We stayed the night in Cumberland and stumbled upon Café Mark while exploring the downtown area. We had a very nice Sunday brunch, enjoyed by everyone in the party. They were out of the special French Toast (which looked amazing), but obligingly offered to do pancakes with the same fresh fruit mixture for the two in our party who had wanted French Toast, and we had a Cajun omelet and a Southern Special with Black Forest Ham. The meats - bacon, Andouille sausage, and Black Forest ham - were especially good, and the pancakes were accompanied by warm syrup. Hot spiced cider was a nice find on the beverage menu. It's a small place but nicely done, with an exposed brick wall adding some character. Would definitely recommend and would stop there again.
What a treat!

We stopped in Cumberland on our way home from Washington, DC. Sometimes on this trip we're in such a hurry we break protocol and eat at a national chain. This time we meandered through an older section of town that has been nicely repurposed for shopping and dining. Being early on a Sunday morning, we asked a couple of locals where to go. We've learned throughout our travels to eat where the locals eat. Smart move for this cafe. They recommended Mark's and even a couple of different dishes that were their favorites. We were not disappointed. The service was good, the breakfasts were large (ok, too large for me) and we shared pancakes and an omelet. They were delicious meals. The prices are great. The owner was there and it was nice to be able to tell him how much we enjoyed our meal. He clearly takes pride in the place.

We stopped for breakfast after a night a the Holiday Inn. The breakfast buzz coffee was strong with a hint of chocolate. I has the chili rellano casserole served on a potato cake with a grilled sausage. DH had French toast rolled in granola with blueberries. Very decadent. The wait staff explained some menu changes to us and were helpful. The restaurant appeared clean.
Great coffee, good breakfast

With not many choices in Frostburg, we stopped in Cumberland on a recent return from visiting our daughter at school. I think Cumberland is a nice little city trying to revive itself and Café Mark is spot on in style and feel. The coffee is truly great. They have a limited breakfast selection but the food is good. There are no servers so you order at the counter though they will bring your food to you. My husband ordered a regular breakfast and I had one of the morning specials, French toast. Hubby's breakfast was good though he was not happy the potatoes were very greasy. The French toast is really good with lots of fresh fruit. It is soaked over night and the flavor was really good thought it was a bit soggy. It won't be a destination again but if we are in Cumberland, definitely a place to stop.
