You always have to wait to get a table at this popular breakfast spot and it's absolutely worth it. On Wednesday, Blue Moon Cafe celebrated 20 years in Fells Point.

It is best known for signature menu items like Cap'n Crunch French Toast, Frito Pie, and Sweet Baby Jesus (combo of eggs, crab meat, cheese, hash browns, and hollandaise sauce).

These unique menu items are what put the restaurant on the map and got them featured on The Food Networks' Diners Drive-Ins and Dives.

“Baltimore embraced us and responded by supporting us the minute we opened. We were truly the first focus on breakfast here because it’s something that connects people. Our success is owed entirely to this community” owner and chef Sarah Simington, who started the restaurant with her mother, Sherri, in 1996, said in a statement.

“Whether you’re five, 25 or 75 years old – from Ohio or Osaka, Japan, we will serve you a badass breakfast.”

The restaurant is so popular last year they opened Blue Moon Too on Light Street in Federal Hill. It features the same delicious menu items but serves a different part of Baltimore.

Simington has also appeared on NBC’s Food Fighters, My Biggest Indulgence, and Guilty Pleasures while also traveling the globe serving United States military troops with the Messlords, a group of Diners, Drive-Ins and Dives alums who are committed to those serving the country.

“My goal has never been to create a restaurant empire,” Simington said. “My mom and I wanted a place where we could be proud to be small business owners, be able to travel and be able to give back to our community.” Simington actively supports the military, the arts and animal welfare.
