An LA- and NYC-based coffee chain call Caffe Bene has told Michael Gioioso of Bmore that they're opening their first location in Ellicott City.
Does anyone know about any specific plans? The Caffe Bene Web site looks like the Rte 40 coffee shops like Bon Appetit and Shilla that do European coffees and pastries by way of Korea. Some savory pastries, but lots of sweets. They're really nice places to shop or to hang out -- very family friendly and an easy way to meet friends or get out of the house.
