Blending the tastes of the Chesapeake with traditional Mediterranean cuisine, Paul’s Homewood Cafe will entice you with an intriguing menu. Choose from a selection of Mediterranean and Greek specialties, or American favorites including grilled steaks and our version of the Maryland crab cake. Our popular dining room has the classy, yet casual feel of a European bistro and there is a separate dining room upstairs for private gatherings. Located away from the bustle of the city's historic district, our Zagat-rated restaurant offers plenty of free, off-street parking. If you never visited us, come experience our family-friendly atmosphere and the food that has made Paul's Homewood Cafe an Annapolis favorite for more than 60 years.

If you are a European or an American who enjoys the flavor of the life you MUST eat there! It is like a fusion best food from Greece and USA. Definitely The best option in Annapolis.

We went there Saturday night to celebrate our anniversary and brought along two friends who had never dined there and they were so impressed with the outstanding service by Frank, the delicious cuisine ( we always order their “ specials”) and the overall great and neighborhood friendly dining experience. We will certainly come back many more times and our friends will too!

Great food. Great service! Food was flavorful, however Greek specialties could have had more of the delicious spices that are highlighted in Greek cuisine. Flavors were mild, but delicious.

This was only the second time I was at Paul's for brunch but have eaten lunch and dinner there many times over the years. Service and food are always reliably good. Brunch offered a nice selection of classic dishes plus some with Paul's signature Greek cuisine such as Greek eggs and lamb. Plus, the restaurant offered a free mimosa at brunch! Paul's has a comfortable neighborhood feel and offers good value for the money.

We decided to have a small Fathers Day Brunch at the last minute. As Paul’s Homewood was a recommended restaurant, we reserved a table. Upon arrival, we were greeted warmly and shown our table. Paul’s lived up to its reputation. The meal was delicious, our server amiable, and the price was very reasonable. We will definitely return.

Location is perfect, not too far downtown and don't have to fight traffic. Lot parking. Hostess was great and very accommodating. I had the Chesapeake Benedict from the brunch menu and it was perfect! we couldn't choose so we shared french toast on the table. Also delish! The bloody Mary's were very tasty and they made their mix from scratch. Definitely a must try! I will be back:)

Our dinner was a special occasion to celebrate Father’s Day early and we all had a great time. Our server was attentive but not intrusive throughout our dining experience . We couldn’t have asked for better service. We had a great table and everyone enjoyed their food. Would certainly recommend this restaurant to others and will return!

Brunch at Paul's Homewood Cafe is always a relaxed, no rush experience. The menu selection spans traditional breakfast and interesting luncheon/dinner items. And there are choices for the kids as well. The meals are plentiful and reasonably priced.

My husbands birthday...our server took great care of us and paced the meal very well. She offered taste of wine before we decided to buy the bottle. Kitchen accommodated request to leave out an ingredient. Seafood appetizer was excellent and the branzino special was very good. All in all a great evening!

We ate here last week. We both enjoyed our dinners. I had the blackened Ahi Tuna salad which was cooked exactly as ordered - medium. Just the right amount of blackening seasoning. My husband order the sautéed seafood platter which consisted of scallops, stuffed shrimp and a crab cake. He pronounced it to be perfect...a compliment he rarely uses. Service was very good. Always glad to return to one of our favorite restaurants in Annapolis!

Paul's Homewood Cafe was fantastic. The atmosphere is lovely and the service was excellent. We where for brunch. My husband has the softshell crab with eggs benedict. I tried some of his softshell crab and it was the best I have ever had. I had the same dish, only with crab cakes, which was also delicious. Our friend ordered the lamb. That was preferred perfectly, although I would have like a bit more of the Greek flavoring. We also had the lemon orzo chicken soup. I wish I had some now! Their desserts are made at the restaurant. Their peanut butter mouse pie with the chocolate crust was silky and scrumptious! We are definitely going back very soon!

Excellent meal, outstanding service. A little noisier than usual due to a large group. To their credit, we were offered a move to a quieter area, but it wasn't that bad, so we stayed where we were. We'll definitely go back.

Everything was very good except the spanakopita was not up to the restaurant’s usual excellence. Something tasted different...maybe less cheese? Less garlic? I am sure this was just an off day, because It’s normally excellent!
