“coffee”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 18, 2013

This place has really good coffee but, it gets really crowded. The prices are also a bit steep. But, if you are in the market for a great cup of coffee in a quaint little town..this is the place

“Best Beef Stew/Soups for a Coffee Shop”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 14, 2013 via mobile

I work up the street and found this place the first week I started my job late last year. Love the scene!!! Cool vibe...but noisy and sometimes slow service. But...the best beef stew & other soups around. Great place to grab coffee, tea, and a quick lunch to go!!

“Not the place to have a quiet cup of coffee.....”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 18, 2013

This little coffee shop right on Main has the possibility of being tops--it certainly draws a crowd--often full-but the crowd makes a lot of noise, and the MUSIC!! gives me a headache every visit. The wait crew is ok-doing a good job with the various orders, but the egg bagel I ordered tasted like McDonalds---so won't get that again..The coffee is fresh and good-seconds do not seem to be encouraged though, unless maybe for the regulars--and there does seem to be a "regular" crowd-of which I am not. I would like to order one of the expensive but luscious muffins/goodies and a coffee and be able to relax but the music pounds on---and when the coffee is empty noone checks to see if maybe you would liek another bit-but that tip jar is right up front near the cash register....altogether sort of disappointing. Lots of take out coffees-probably the best way to go-

“Cool kinda hippy cafe...”

Great place to stop in for a soup and sandwich or coffee and a pastry, either way - nice vibe, tasty food, great coffee, and great employees.... Fun place to check into on Main Street

“Excellent location”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 15, 2012 via mobile

If walking about Main Street, Ellicott City- you need to stop in for a cup of coffee. The coffee was very good on par with Starbucks. The coffee dive had a nice touch inside fitting in quite nice along the other shops on Main Street. The prices were the norm for a coffee shops. This is worth your time if you are in the area. :-)
