"Chick & Ruth’s is a wild, fun place to eat breakfast, lunch, dinner, or a late-nite snack. In the heart of old Annapolis, it is a Jewish style (but not strictly kosher) deli that is colorful, full of life, and so cramped that if you sit in one of the booths opposite ..."   [Read More]

Coffee is presented in a thick mug with a spoon along with a scattering of half-and-half packets. $1.85 buys all you can drink.

This view of the interior gives a good sense of how cozy Chick & Ruth's is.  On the far right, posted on the wall, are paper plates listing the famous-name sandwiches.
