Yum!

Great sandwiches!!!!! The smell is fantastic! The staff was friendly enough but a bit in attentive, given their young age that was expected. I would def go back if in the area.

We like to visit this place almost every time we come to the historic part of town. It is a particular favorite for the local college crowd (UMBC in particular). The coffee is good and hot. Plenty of flavors to please just about everyone. The pastries and snacks are particularly good at this place. I have tried the blueberry muffins,... More

My favorite is their hummus platter. the best I've ever had. I love the atmosphere in there. I go there at least once a week.

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
