Friendly people in a great setting with good food. WE ate upstairs overlooking the "church" just watching people and enjoying a bite - wonderful.

An old church building turned a cafe. It's a unique place with warm design and atmosphere. Good food and coffee. The staff was very friendly. Highly recommend.

Regrettably, we cycled into this kitschy converted church coffee shop on a holiday weekend when their POS (menu ordering system) went down. The line stretched from coffee bar altar to the entrance and moved slower than DC’s Beltway traffic. THE UPSIDE was that the staff...plowed ahead with smiles and diligent service as our weak legs stepped ever-forward to order. The breakfast sandwiches and coffees are Devine and Heavenly .. and the shabby sheik ambiance was as comfortable as a good friend’s living room. This is a must do stop in visiting Brunswick. Happy cycling.More

This place has parking in the back and on the street. It is a beautiful old church with stained glass windows. Seating is indoor and outdoor. Every spot is socially distanced. There is a little gift area and comfy furniture too. You can even sit...high up in the balcony! Our coffee latte, spiced chai tea latte and quiches were perfection! Well worth finding and dining there!More

Dropped by on the way home based on the name and reviews - good stuff! The service was fast and friendly for a few simple drinks. The ambience is fantastic - great job.

This is a unique location in an old church in Brunswick Maryland that has been re-purposed into a great place to relax and have coffee and breakfast. The three of us all had breakfast sandwiches which were delicious. Interior is beautiful and definitely looking forward...to visiting again!More

The restaurant is a converted historic church, complete with stained glass, wood floors, high rafters and tin ceilings. They've furnished it with mismatched sets of chairs and tables, antique sofas and comfy lounge chairs. Very pretty and funky. For Covid issues, they have spread the...tables out and they disinfect them for you. Masks are worn and they are careful with contacts. The food was creative and tasted very good. Prices were very reasonable. Their menu is longish and varied. We'll be back.More

I want to love it. The building is beautiful, but the service makes this place disappointing. The coffee isn’t bad tho. I have been here twice, and both times I have felt like my presence was an inconvenience. I feel like maybe if they weren’t...understaffed on a Saturday morning they could be great! Good luck folks.More

I gushed about this place to my wife, took a one way bike ride out from DC and discovered it was a 40min wait in line and another 40min wait for food. A lot of inefficient buzzing about by waitstaff. If you’re hungry, don’t come...here until they get it together.More

Dear timc301, thank you so much for "gushing" about Beans in the Belfry and then for coming out for a visit with your wife. I do apologize profoundly for the wait time on Labor Day which ruined your experience. With such gorgeous weather many people...More

My husband and I followed purple signs of the highway and found this place. It is absolutely incredible. The ambience is incredible and the food was so good. apparently a woman bought this building and renovated it by herself over 3 years. She's done an...amazing job. Corey was working today and showed us all around and told us about all of the decorations. This is a definite must stop if you are in the area. we had the oatmeal and breakfast sandwich and they were delicious and the coffee is incredible.More
