Our Yoga Teacher class went for a group meal here, and all of us; vegetarians, vegans, and omnivores, found something delicious to eat and share. We found the cost to be very reasonable and they accommodated our large group graciously, with excellent service.

Met a friend here for Sunday brunch. Was a great experience! Ecclectic crowd, friendly staff, and there was a weekly farmers market literally just outside the front door (so think about that when it comes to parking on a Sunday)! Had the biscuits as an egg sandwich and they were delicious. The bacon was a bit on the salty side for me, but I imagine just as many (if not more) people would find that a plus! LOL
We had a really nice time and a wonderful meal. I'd go back anytime.

Found out about this place from a WP article listing several casual breakfast venues. Tried it on a Sunday. It is metro accessible and there is a parking lot behind the building but not sure if only certain spaces were for Mark's, didn’t see any signs and when we tried to park some guy who wasn’t very communicative was there to collect parking fees - maybe it was due to the weekend street market. So we just parked on one of the side streets, most of them have permit parking signs but only for Mon-Fri.
It’s was about 11 am and the restaurant was packed. It’s a small eatery with basic decor, the dining room rectangular with a prominent juice bar on one side. At first we thought we’d have to wait as no tables seemed open but turned out there were two more tables in the back. As it’s not a brunch place it did start emptying out a bit after noon. The menu is indeed extensive and overwhelming with all kinds of variations on traditional breakfasts. But unless you are really into fine tuning your breakfast it’s much easier to just order from the simpler breakfast specials section. So that was what we did, had Korean steak kimchi omelet, and two eggs with mung bean pancakes. Both very good, with the kimchi omelet being the more flavorful and spicy. Portions were generous, I had three 2 1/4 inch round pancakes with chopped onions and scallions, eggs, plus home fries and an English muffin (they were so into customization we were asked whether we wanted onions in our home fries). Certainly if you are a picky eater you'd have no problems getting everything done exactly the way you want here. Also tried the green tea latte, rather disappointing - weak green tea flavor, more like slightly greenish tinted milk. Overall however, a great neighborhood restaurant, too bad it’s not in our own neighborhood so cannot go back there so easily.

The service and food was outstanding. The chicken Param was tender and not overly breaded. The accompanying spaghetti was perfectly cooked with a delicious tomato sauce. The fettuccine al ragu was also a perfect blend. The service was prompt and friendly. The restaurant was not busy this evening so luckily no reservations were needed. Definitely would return when in the area again.

We are much more than just one of the coffee shops in Silver Spring. We are Kaldi's Social Club. This is the very same attitude that has led to a brand new Kaldi's. We will always have the best coffee found anywhere in the area. That is our core, our foundation. But any good foundation provides room to grow, and that is exactly what led to a tripling of our floor space. Kaldi's remains a comforting oasis of creativity and community, where flavorful coffee the world over perfumes the open room all morning and afternoon long. In the evening, Kaldi's welcomes you to delight in custom-made cocktails as you relax in our cozy lounge. Or maybe you'd like to have a fresh-from-scratch, made-to-order dinner as you relax on the rooftop deck.
After a screening of the Metropolitan Opera's Tosca, we went to Kaldi's for what turned into over two hours of delightful conversation with a good friend and former neighbor. For anyone who used to enjoy Mayorga coffee (now closed), Kaldi's is sort of the Platonic ideal for which Mayorga merely strived. Large spaces, comfortable table and sofa seating with some people reading or working on the computer while others enjoy a social chat. Our coffee and ginger teas were hot and tasty. We were left alone and had no trouble talking even over the semi-country sound track. A young woman sitting right next to the three of us engaged us in wonderful discussions, and we had a SUPER time. Highly recommended!

Parkway is a long time favorite in the Rock Creek Shopping Center. But to my mind it's overrated because there aren't any really good delis in the area. The service is barely OK, and sometimes it can be impossible to get the attention of the wait staff. The food certainly doesn't come up to the standard of places in NY like Stage Deli. Take out orders have to be rigorously checked to make sure they got it right. Not my favorite place!

Welcome to Kin Da where you can indulge. We are a Thai and Sushi themed restaurant with delicious food, good service at a reasonable price.
Have eaten here many times, and am generally always pleased. Their menu is a bit more creative than the standard American Thai fare that is typically offered, but of course incorporates those components as well. Spicy eggplant and garlic and brussels sprouts are a few of my favorites. The sushi is great too.

We upon our friend's recommendation and really enjoyed our dinner. In addition to the samosas and ginger salad (which our 3 year old great nephew loved!), we tried their chicken in coconut cream sauce, the curried beef with cilantro and pork with sour mustard (which was surprisingly good). You can specify how spicy you want your dishes. This is a family run restaurant and the matriarch is the one cooking for you. Service was friendly and quick, too! And don't forget to save room for dessert!

We were there with our daughter, out son-in—law, and out 11 year old twin grandkids. We all had something different and the food was excellent. I had lasagna bolognese, it was one of the top three bolognese sauces that I’ve had, one of which was in Sorento, Italy. The ambience is very nice.and the service was excellent. We are going back.
