Take a Tour of Good Neighbor, the Cafe-Meets-Shop Peddling Small Bites and Cute Wares in Baltimore
Welcome to Shop Tour, where we introduce you to some of our favorite new independent retailers and share the stories behind the beautiful products they stock.
The idea behind Shawn Chopra and Anne Morgan’s Good Neighbor was simple: excellent café bites and drinks served on plates or in mugs that are also for sale. While COVID-19 may have put dreams of indoor gatherings on pause, the Baltimore-based café, which features a casual-yet-experimental small plates menu led by chef Durian Neal, is finding new ways to host its customers.
More than just a curated retail experience showcasing local artisans, socially-distanced events, like Good Neighbor’s “Chaat Hour,” offer a chance for the community to gather safely. The outdoor, ticketed snack times (live music included!) offer a much-needed hangout spot during an era otherwise marked by collective isolation. Here we chatted with Chopra about some of his favorite items in the shop.
