Visiting my son over Memorial Day weekend, we decided to take a stroll on Main St, in the historic area of Ellicott City. When my 5 year old grandson wanted ice cream,we were conveniently outside of Bean Sensation, which could easily be missed. My wife, daughter in law, and grandson went inside to order ice cream. Within 5 minutes, they... More

Ellicott City, the location of Bean Hollow, is a very charming little town filled with history, boutique stores and quaint shops - and a number of diverse restaurants. Bean Hollow is more of a coffee shop, though does offer savory comestibles in addition to a number of delicious sweets. The star attraction, though, is the coffee, which is roasted on... More

took my cousin from L.A. for s stroll thru historic Ellicott City one weekday. We stopped for lunch based on reviews. The sandwiches were tasty, but small, no chips or fries. We are not big eaters, but still wanted something else. Not a great value if you are hungry.

I grew up in Catonsville, so when I took my husband back to the area to visit, I told him we had to visit Old Ellicott City, and we had to go to Bean Hollow for coffee and pastries. This coffee shop has a very unique atmosphere that summarizes Old Ellicott City -- artsy, querky, earthy. You just have to... More

I was a first time visitor, and I was impressed. My wife, and I had seasonal hot beverages, which were delicious. The food here was also very good, which includes their prepared hot sandwiches, and bakery items. I would recommend as a place to stop by if you are passing through or visiting Ellicott City.

I return to Ellicott City every few months...first on my list is stopping in at Bean Hollow to have a cup of coffee and perhaps more.....staff is a bit offbeat and earthy....but, that's why I go. I truly love this place....I feel that I am on vacation and it's barely 20 miles away from my home...Praise the town of Historic... More

Kids had two amazing desserts. Chocolate layer cake and chocolate mousse. Both great and they have others too. We had two flavored coffee drinks both unique and good. They have a sandwiches and salads as well. We didn't try but other customers said good and fresh. Glad we stopped as most restaurants are brewpubs with bar food. Other reviews are... More

Like most independent coffee shops, Bean Hollow is fun and funky. Of course all the servers are cool as cucumbers...you know, cute hair cuts and color, funny T-shirts, tattoos.... And their service is always good. And there is the classic coffee shop feel and smell too. It is in a perfect spot in Ellicott City, down the hill close to... More
