Beans in the Belfry Meeting Place and Cafe

Beans in the Belfry is located in a century old, historic, restored church building nestled in downtown Brunswick and rewards your visit with the finest quality coffees & teas, excellent espresso, delicious coffee specialty drinks & the best hot chocolate.  Breakfast lunch or dinner, served all day, our delicious fresh baked goods, soups, chili, snacks, salads and Panini sandwiches get rave reviews, seven days a week.

Comfortable Decor

The warm, comfortable & friendly ambiance  of overstuffed chairs & couches invite you to linger.  Find a quiet niche & read from our library of antique and classic novels and local history books, or our Newspapers which include the New York Times, Frederick News-Post, Washington Post, and Brunswick Citizen.  Young visitors love to play dress-up with finds in our costume trunk, or read in the children’s corner, play with blocks, dominoes, chess or the doll house.

You can also check your email or surf the web on the guest computer in the choir loft cyber café or use our free wi-fi.

Favorite destination when bicycling the C&O Canal towpath.  So bring the entire family for an enjoyable time out!
