Golden West Cafe

1105 W 36th St, Baltimore, United States



When you say Golden, we say West! Golden West Cafe is a beloved Baltimore culinary institution, serving Americana cuisine and Southwest comfort food, rooted in traditional New Mexican specialties. After opening more than a decade ago in a tiny space on “The Avenue” in Hampden, Golden West relocated to its current, larger space in 2003, in order to accommodate the constantly expanding crowd of loyal regulars and curious new customers.

Our newly reconceived dining room boasts an eclectic setting for customers while they enjoy our house-made specialities, old school lunches and dinner favorites.  Our Long Bar has become one of Baltimore’s favorite late night hotspots, and is open all day for eats and drinks, with food served until midnight.

Golden West sources from local producers such as Springfield Farm, Cherry Glen Farm, Tanner’s Pickles and Zeke’s Coffee. We are also proud to serve a wide array of vegan and vegetarian options, and have a full gluten-free menu that includes our house-made desserts.

We are located at 1105 W. 36th Street, in Hampden, one of Baltimore’s most distinct neighborhoods. Our atmosphere is casual, family-friendly and often bustling. If you’ve already visited us, we appreciate your patronage, and if you haven’t yet, we look forward to serving you soon!
