Very Nice Little Main Street Spot

This place is great. The atmosphere is cozy and kind of hipster. You'll find a drawer next to their coffee roaster full of napkins with people's secrets on them. Local art is for sale on the walls. They have about 4 seasonal coffee and/or tea related drinks that change every month (like cookie dough lattes) that are ALWAYS amazing. The... More

I've lived in Maryland (ellicott city... the newer part) for most of my life until I moved somewhere where everything that is sold is basically a normal cafe menu no matter where you went. Coming here was such a nice breath of fresh air. I had their "powerhouse" sandwich, which was hummus on nice bread along with lots of vegetables... More

Wonderful atmosphere, great coffee, and the best mocha, hands down! I love these little non-chain coffee shops with a charming appeal and good coffee, and this place fits the bill.

i love coming here for coffee, dessert, and lunch. chalkboards above the county show what they have and the daily specials. a tempting dessert display changes routinely and everything is fresh and good. sandwiches are made to order and soups taste homemade. i typically buy my coffee here when my style is in stock. the place is small so procuring...

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.
