We ordered bagels from this shop twice while staying in town. We found the employees behind the counter to be pleasant and the service quick. The cinnamon sugar was a huge hit with our group.

I needed to use the restroom before having a coffee and something to eat. The door was locked so I inquired about a key and the waitress said that it must be occupied. Waited and even knocked on door and no answer. So I left.
