Bean Hollow roasts their coffee right in the cafe about once a week. The coffee is always fresh, well made and can be accompanied by delicious and innovative sandwiches or fresh delectible pastries. This is THE place to go in Howard County!

This is not a "highway food" kind of place. We like espresso coffee which is hard to find. The coffee here was hot, very good, and promptly served. We shared an "apple betty" which we ordered slathered with butter and heated. It was promptly served with the coffee. Excellent. Lots of papers to read, lots of books, too. No one... More

We visited this cafe last week on a short visit to Ellicott City. It looks like a good place for breakfast but we got there closer to lunch time so the menu was a little limited. The coffee looked good but it was a little late for me to have coffee. I had a turkey sandwich. The turkey was good... More

This is the place to go to get the urban coffee shop vibe without actually having to go into the city. Great coffee and coffee drink, good dessert selection and uber coffee shop vibe.

Ellicott City is a neat little town filled with great restaurants and interesting shops. At the end of your time, if the weather is good and you are lucky enough, grab one of the seats/tables outside (very FEW)enjoy your snack/drinks people watching along main street. I find it especially nice in the early evening. Bean Hallow is THE flavor of... More

Popped in last week to meet a friend for coffee. I had been there, although my friends goes weekly. The coffee is good, but the tiramisu was the star for me. It is usually a boring dessert and poorly done. Bean Hollow's tiramisu was terrific. It had a variety of layers and the lady fingers did NOT predominate. Instead the... More

We popped in to this coffee shop in the late afternoon for sandwiches (yes...sandwiches, not a coffee or latte or etc.). The Bean Hollow offers a nice, unique variety of fresh sandwiches & wraps. All ingredients were fresh and the portions/sizes were decent. I wouldn't necessarily say that the sandwiches were amazing or exemplary, though...they were just good. Seating is... More

The cappuccino was delicious and I REALLY like that I can get it in a ceramic mug! The line was quite long so be prepared for a wait.

Such character! Such ambiance! I stopped in this morning as they were roasting their beans and the place was filled with the rich smell of roasting coffee. The historic building with its high ceilings and wood floors has a vibe that can't be recreated. The tables were filled on a weekday at 10am because this is the go-to spot for... More
