Mrs. K's Toll House Silver Spring, MDI've lived and worked in the Silver Spring, MD area for a decade now but never had the opportunity to dine at Mrs. K's Toll House on Route 29 in Silver Spring, MD. I have driven by hundreds of times and probably thought "I must eat there" just as many but it just never happened. 

Until today that is. I was in the area for an appointment and had made plans with a past client turned friend to meet up for lunch. Mrs. K's!! 

Mrs. K's is a fixture in the Silver Spring (dining) community with distinct character and quite the history. It used to be a Toll House back in the day, before Route 29 bMrs. K's Toll Houseecame Colesville Road and horses and carriages were the mode of transportation.

I absolute love the house - full of vintage charm and a large collection of antiques which are displayed throughout the restaurant - and beautiful garden.. The wine cellar is spectacular, the view lovely and the staff was very attentive (although I did have some trouble understanding them sometimes).

We chose a table right by the window and I got to enjoy the view while talking to my friend ... so much so that I forgot to take pictures of the food. I had Edamane Potstickers with Soy Sauce (yum!) as an appetizer and a Caesar Salad with Salmon (the latter wasn't as crispy as I prefer but delicious nonetheless). I didn't have room for a "sweet ending" but my friend tried the Kit Kat Bars (crunchy hazelnut mousse) and by the way he devoured it, I would assume it was quite tasty.

I don't think it will take me another 10 years to eat at Mrs. K's Toll House again!

Definitely a very unique restaurant, Lou, which I prefer over chains any day.

Hi Eric, I didn't have the chance to take in all the antiques, a good excuse to return soon.

Andrea, Mrs K's Toll House sounds like a great place to enjoy a meal in a relaxing atmosphere.  It looks like a very nice place that where one could become a regular.

I think they have quite the following Silvia. I'll definitely have to take my parents next time they visit, they would love the history behind it and, of course, the wine cellar.

It is Fred. I enjoyed my first lunch there a lot.. I'll have to return soon.
