24 hours in Baltimore

Hello chowhounders-

I have spent two days reading all the old posts on Baltimore and wanted to see if you had any ideas for my family. We are headed to a doctors appt at Johns Hopkins so we will be in town (from DC area) for about 24 hours. I will have my hubby and 2 yr old daughter with me (makes things a little tricky-er). We are staying at the Homewood Suites by Hilton in Harbor East area.

Planning to come into town after lunch time and visit the Lexington Market to pick up some snacky type stuff. (Any favorites?)

Then after checking into the hotel I think we will walk over to the Water Taxi (daughter will love a boat ride) and head to dinner somewhere with good crabcakes/seafood off of one of the Water Taxi stops. I love a trendy spot but I am sure that most of the seafood places at the docks are going to be more my hubbys style (paper tableclothes/picnic tables etc) Was thinking of maybe Bo Brooks in Canton? Are any of these near the Water Taxi line (By The Docks in Essex, Pappas on Taylor Ave., and Dock of the Bay in Millers Island.) Whats your favorite?

The next morning we will just grab something at the hotel as we are headed to the Aquarium right when they open. But for lunch I was thinking Attman's deli (do they have seating areas inside the deli?) I know my husband would like it. Also loved the creative sandwhiches on the menu at the Dogwood Deli but it is kind of far from where we are staying right....any other spots like that closer to the Innerharbor?

Then as we are heading out of town any good cupcake/dessert/chocolate shops that we should grab something to take home...who am I kidding--eat on the car ride home:)

I always get the best advice from this site. Our last trip to the Florida Keys were a homerun~every restaurant we ate at was suggested on Chowhound and we loved all of them!
