Great for lunch
CD Cafe is obviously popular with locals. It has an interesting lunch menu with great choices.Service was great. The only caution--since it is so popular, you might have to wait.

Probably the most consistently wonderful dining experiences in Solomons. Their go-to items, especially the Mediterranean pasta, are always top notch and their specials are always delicious and creative. Your taste buds are definitely not bored here. This is also a place you definitely want to leave room for dessert. They have some re ... read more

Fresh, delicious and always interesting food. Great wine and dessert selections. Smaller portions available so you can try two dishes instead of one.

A most excellent dinner! Salmon and Snapper fish belly, Pickled cucumber and carrot salad with clove and star anise seasoning, with seaweed salad, and key lime pie for dessert!

Always good!
This restaurant is small and there are no reservations, but it is worth the wait. Order one of their specials - crab, scallops, fish, etc. and you won’t be disappointed!

I have never had a meal at CD Cafe. they are always pleasant and the food is off the chain. Always spectacular. You gotta try the Scallop BBT.

We had one of the best meals ever here! How many times have you asked "where did the chef study?"...right...never! Well, I did because it was simply that good and noticeably prepared by someone special. I'll keep it to myself so you can experience the answer for yourself. It's a cozy restaurant with about 12 4-tops, so there may be a ... read more

Consistently the best meal around. The big decision is whether to go with a known favorite, such as curried chicken sandwich, or try a special. Last night, the tuna was amazing and my 12yo discovered how good the curried chicken was after trying dad's sandwich. Hummus is a family favorite and leave room for dessert!

The food and atmosphere was very nice. Our waiter “Joe” was very cordial and accommodating. I ordered a cucumber mint gin and tonic and it was excellent! Food was excellent and cooked to perfection.

Great food. Most of the time when we come here, they need just one more waitress to achieve great service. Always just alittle understaffed.

Quaint atmosphere, delicious menu, and great service. Perfect hidden gem in Solomons. Sometimes other customers may impede on your meal with loud talking and general rudeness, due to the cozy seating. But this is worth the great food!

Fantastic!
Small restaurant with excellent food! Chopped salad is flavorful and a good price ($4 for 1/2 portion). BBT scallop appetizer had a fabulous sauce. Flavors are thoughtfully combined. Good service. Definitely will return.

Solid culinary experience in SOMD.  The mahi special with a beurre blanc variation was well prepared.  Others had Bangkok scallops and a shrimp dish that were both good. The fluffy coconut cake was the highlight of the meal.  The filet appetizer with Boursin, portobello and spinach was great. Service was excellent.
