Great place to chill in Ellicott City. Cafe was hip, with a good selection of food. I had the BLT and lintel soup, special for the day. Both were good, about $10 for the half sandwich and soup combo. Coffee (espresso macchiato) was mediocre, not bad but not great either. Food his the highlight here, for sure. Lines were long,... More

A walk around Ellicott City on a sunny day is always fun. Bean hollow is known for their excellent coffee and deserts so we were surprised to see that they have sandwiches as well on their menu. We had the Turkey Club. It was prepared with all fresh items on a hearty wheat bread. Now a new favorite place to... More

Max Von Sydow would agree... Sumatra is the best bean for the value and you have to buy Hawaiin or Jamaican for better flavor. But those are twice the cost of Sumatran. Bean Hollow has them all and you can prove it to yourself in personal trials. Gretchen takes great care to roast these and other great selections from the... More

Coffee, tea and the most amazing chocolate cake I've ever eaten. I think Zanzibar ? Something but who cares. Try them all! It was very busy when we were there and I loved how calm and attentive the staff was. Very mindful in providing eye contact and assuring they got the order correctly.

Every year during Ellicott City's Midnight Madness my husband and I will stop at the Bean Hollow for a yummy holiday espresso and dessert. Their chocolate cheesecake is extremely rich - I could only take a few bites but it was the best I've ever had. There is usually a long line and no free tables, but totally worth it.

This cozy spot has breakfast sandwiches, pastries, delicious coffee drinks and great ambience. Right on Main Street in Ellicott City. It is a great way to gear up for a meander through the quirky shops on this cool street. It opens 2 hours before the stores so there is plenty of time to enjoy their offerings. As a matter of...

Love this place. We've been here twice, and it ROCKS. The selection of affordable food is tough to beat and they do coffee right.
