As its name suggests, A Baked Joint is a place that doesn’t take itself too seriously, and doesn’t beat around the bush. This shop’s motto is “simple cooking done well,” and a brief look at the menu confirms that this sentiment is more than just a marketing strategy.
The breakfast menu is full of straightforward fare like biscuits, granola, oatmeal, eggs, and toast, along with several varieties of freshly-brewed coffees and teas that regulars say rival any coffee shop in the Mt Vernon Triangle. The lunch menu features mostly sandwiches and wraps, along with hearty, house-made soups and fresh salads. Vegetarians and gluten-sensitive diners appreciate the multiple options for their diets, as well (the vegetarian chili is especially popular). A Baked Joint serves house cocktails, wines, and beer from open to close, and happy hour is from 4 to 7 p.m. daily.
