Donna’s Café in Charles Village is located at 3101 St. Paul Street. It features an open kitchen and outdoor seating and is the fourth restaurant to meet the popular Eat in Season Challenge. Their regular menu will be available during the Challenge week.

The Challenge is an initiative of Slow Food Baltimore. It invites area establishments to serve -- during one week of the month -- a special three-course menu each night with the primary ingredients in each course to be locally sourced, and either currently in season, or traditionally preserved. The metro-wide campaign encourages chefs to be innovative; to create food that otherwise may not be featured or showcased. The Challenge also teaches people about the powerful benefits of eating seasonally.
