Stopped here to pick up lunch on my way home. I had their egg white, turkey sausage, tomato, and cheese on a whole wheat bagel. Was only $4 for the sandwich and it was perfectly filling and delectable. Their whole wheat bagel was very flavorful which can be hard to find (most whole wheat items taste like cardboard). Really enjoyed... More

These bagels are the best tasting bagels I've had in the US. I love bagels in general, but these were just the right amount of chewy, soft inside with an outer layer that isn't soggy or moist. I travel and live outside the US, so when I come 'home', each meal counts! I would drive an hour out of my... More

We always try local bagel shops as we travel. This bagel shop does an excellent job offering many varieties of bagels and spreads to go with them. Very large bagels and very good. My husband orders his burnt and it was perfect.

The place to go for a bagel! Several different bagel 'flavors' to choose from...new favorite is a cheddar herb. They make breakfast and lunch sandwiches. Warm, fresh bagels. Staff is friendly and I've never waited long for my order. They have coffee, special drinks, smoothies, bottles juices and pop. I try to stay away from the caffeinated beverages, but I... More

My husband and I had lattes and bagel breakfast sandwiches, and a muffin, $17 total. The coffee and breakfast were both wonderful. Great value for TC breakfast options. The atmosphere is nice.

It's Bagels, but bagels done right. We often stop here when in Traverse City if we are hungry and limited in time this is a great take out for bagel sandwiches, smoothies, and baked goods. Service is fast and friendly too.
