Edenwald

Towson, MD

The contemporary café design is more open than its predecessor and allows for greater circulation space between the food offerings. The resulting design took cues from a local farmers market, focusing on fresh foods (some locally sourced during the summer) and a wide range of options. New to the café are a coffee shop, Grab-N-Go offerings, and a pizza station, which complement a salad bar, deli, and hot entrée station. Another new dining experience to be offered is a patio dining component.
