Maybe they were having a bad day, but I went here expecting decent bagels and came away disappointed. First: I have been eating bagels for a long time, in almost all of the lower 48 (never had a bagel in Alabama or Louisiana) and every time I ordered a dozen to go I got 13 bagels. I guess this place... More

Thank you for your review and your honest feedback. Indeed we (or I) must have been having a bad day. First, I believe I am the one who took your order and mixed up your bagels. My most sincere apology. As for the baker's dozen, I even remember you requesting that, which is why I think I am the one... More

Fresh coffee, tasty handmade bagel sandwiches, casual cool atmosphere and superb local art on display! Occasionalyl Colorado musicians play live shows here... A "secret spot" for locals, visitors welcome!

Coffee and a bagel--what better way to start your day. Whether an egg and sausage on whole wheat or an "everything" with a "schmeer", the food is fresh, good, and served with a smile. The choice of coffee is varied and tasty.

Our family of 9 stopped here for lunch on our way from the airport to Telluride. The food was fresh and yummy. Great variety of bagels, sandwiches and to my daughters great surprise they had a gluten free bagel too. Very friendly. A great way to begin a vacation!!

Top notch bagel. Yes it's a little different than Nah Yorkahs (wife is from NY I can get away with it) bagels but it's mighty close to mom and pop shops there. All ingredients are excellent quality no matter what you get. Also they recently expanded so it's not quite so packed. Even when packed rarely have I waited longer... More

newly remodeled and expanded, the absolute best place in Montrose for a breakfast bagel, a lunch bagel or any time you want a good, fresh chewy, perfectly baked treat. There are really no bad choices here, so come often and come hungry

My husband and I were visiting Montrose for the weekend while exploring the Black Canyon of the Gunnison and we ate here 3 times. Definitely the best place for breakfast and lunch in Montrose.

Local hangout... Great variety of bagels, sandwich options, sweet treats and specialty coffees... The breakfast bagel sandwich with coffee combo is a good value. Recently the the new owners have added space with local artists on display. They also host an outdoor space both in front with bistro style tables and the back with a more picnic style.
