My wife and I happened on this spot on a Sunday afternoon by chance. As soon as we opened the door we heard wonderful country music coming from inside. There in one corner were about 20 musicians - fiddlers, guitar, mandolin, base players - a pick up group of young and older players, having the time of their life and... More

I don't live in Maryland, so it's unfortunate that I can't visit regularly. I'd heard of this place and made a point to go while visiting a friend, and boy is it magical. The food was delicious and the interior is gorgeous. It's a place you can meet with friends, or curl up with a book while sipping a yummy... More

Got carry out on a Tuesday at lunch. Out of a couple things I wanted and was told the french press coffee was " to difficult " to do for a Togo order , do not understand that. My wife enjoyed her curry chicken panini but the raisen and celery completely covered every other flavor. Not well balanced. I ordered... More

The wife and I stopped in today at a wonderful coffee bar/restaurant called Beans in the Belfry. It is in an old church that still has the stained windows (not sure if they are original but they looked it). The decor inside is quite different, but comfortable. We stopped for lunch and had a couple of their sandwiches which were... More

A very casual place for a light lunch or afternoon break. Remodeled church with beautiful stained glass windows and an eclectic mix of tables, chairs, and benches. Quiches, soups, and sandwiches predominate the menu and you place your order at the cash register - then they bring it to your table when it is ready. Cafe also serves as a... More

I live about 8 minutes away, across the river, so I guess that I'm a regular at "Beans". It's mostly a morning visit on weekends for me, time to enjoy a cappuccino and read the Post and NY Times. Occasionally, I've been by in the afternoon or early evening when a group of musicians have been doing their thing. Simply... More

Good food and service. I like the sausage gravy and biscuits. Breakfasts are good as well this is a great place to have a leisurely meal after biking the C and O canal.

Went there for a light dinner on a Friday, and lucked out that a local trio was setting up to perform for a few hours. The atmosphere is fun, comfortable, with traditional tables and chairs for small or large groups. They also have couches and plush chairs invite you to stay for a while. The food was amazing. I had... More
