Beans in the Belfry is eclectically furnished with comfortable couches, antique church pews and table seating that has often been hailed as your home away from home and “Third Place”. The casual ambiance and friendly service heighten your experience. Relax, surrounded by stained glass windows, or work at your laptop. Bring your children to enjoy creative play in the kids corner.

Our Church Building on 122 West Potomac Street was constructed as the Brunswick Reformed Church in 1910 and served as place of community worship until December of 1968. Today, the red brick structure has retained most of its original appearance including the original stained glass windows. After undergoing an expertly -and lovingly conducted restoration by its owner Melanie DiPasquale, it continues to stand and is again a lively part of Brunswick’s downtown historic district and community.
