Stopped in for a hot drink on a cold day and was pleasantly surprised! Cute, tiny (read: kinda tight when crowded) spot in historic Ellicott City. Members in the group only had their coffee drinks but they were delicious! In a quick look at their food menu it seems they have sandwiches and vegetarians options, great looking desserts and even...

Fresh well made sandwiches and the coffee selection is always good. Very informal setting with a great location in the middle of the historic down town. Even when it is very busy, it doesn't take long to get your food. Lots of really good dessert/pastry items.

We go to the Bean Hollow often since it's a great local place to grab a cup of coffee on a cold day and a nice ice cream cone during the summer. All of the mocas are great, but I would stay away from the any of the steamers (they're pretty gross). The pastries, salads, and all other food is... More

I love Bean Hollow for coffee or a light meal, but keep in mind that it offers informal dining in a somewhat quirky but comfortable environment. You stand in line to order your coffee, bagel, sandwich or whatever and the staff then serves it to you at your table. Bean Hollow can get very crowded on weekends when tourists flock... More

Perfect! I felt like I'm in home but drinking a gourmet handcraft coffee. The Caranilla is the best and also the plan bagel with egg and cheese. Fresh food and delicious coffee.

Fantastic place to drop by after dinner to get a scoop of ice cream, your favorite coffee, or some hot chocolate!

We have been to Bean Hollow several times and enjoyed it every time. The fact that it is crowded every time we go is a testament to it's popularity and quality. That being said, get there early in the evening to get the best selection of goodies to go with your coffee. They sell out quickly and are not baking... More

I enjoy going here so much because they have different things to offer other than the standard coffee shop. I mean they still have coffee drinks and snacks but they are so good and different and have a larger variety to pick from. They have the best biscotti's ever. They are not too hard and taste so good.

Everyone who lives in Ellicott City has been to Bean Hollow. The hot chocolate is delicious. It comes in a green mug if you're sitting down to eat/drink, and it has the perfect amount of whipped cream.

Coffee at Bean Hollow was a bustling noisy affair when we were there. The service is prompt and friendly. The cappuccino was delicious as was the iced latte. There are arrays of items on the menu for breakfast and lunch. They also serve ice cream. There is plenty of seating and a small bar. A cozy atmosphere and a must... More
