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

I darken the doors of Bean Hollow at least twice a week, usually just for a cup of coffee to take to "work" down the street at the B&O Railroad Station Museum, another Ellicott City institution, probably the best of the bunch. On occasion I`ve dined at Bean Hollow and the food and service are top notch, a bonus being... More

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.
