ANNAPOLIS, Md. — Maybe the rain tonight caused you to get into a fender bender, maybe your little one just told you about a science project or maybe you just took a sad phone call.

Life can pile up, but then life can lead you to walk into a coffee shop where your life changes.

You'll never meet anyone more happy to make you a cup of coffee.

The company, Bitty & Beau's is a North Carolina run business run by people with intellectual and developmental disabilities.

Amy and her husband Ben have four kids, the two youngest being Bitty and Beau. To honor their lives with Down Syndrome, mom and dad wanted to make sure their names were always up there in lights to be celebrated.

Wilmington, North Carolina. Savannah, Georgia. Charleston, South Carolina, Bitty and Beau’s have now docked on Dock Street in Annapolis.

In this coffee house in Annapolis, you will find 26 of the nicest, friendliest and kindest human beings you will ever come across. When you walk out, you will no doubt be touched by what can been done if you just give people a try.

You walk in for a cup of coffee and walk out with a cup of compassion.

Bitty and Beau’s Coffee House opens this Saturday on Dock Street in Annapolis.
