Best bagels south of Hudson River but same price as you'd pay by the Hudson. Good when really craving a NY bagel. Sandwiches are loaded, great for splitting which helps keep cost of going out for breakfast or lunch down. Great to have fir holidays too!

We went for just their baked goods this time. Haven't had anything I did not like. THeir brownies are huge, topped with a delicious chocolate icing (split one since they are sooo large), black/white cookies are super good just like NYC and their eclairs are the best. They are filled with custard as they should be. Been there for lunch... More

Great place for breakfast with NY style bagels and service with NY style attitude. Very popular place on weekends. Haven't tried lunch but I'm sure it is just as good.

Crunchy on the outside and a good chewiness on the inside. My everything bagel(toasted) with lox spead was great. Generous smear of cream cheese with chunks of lox. Will go again. Everything I had hoped for. Significant amount of other baked goods and a deli section. Poppy Seeds and Bagel Bin are the best I've found in the Charlotte area.

Went here this afternoon and got a chicken salad sandwich on a croissant and chips, six bagels to go. I went to this place a few years ago and wanted to try it again. The chicken salad sandwich I got had lettuce tomatoes and onions on a croissant. The croissant was fresh and flavorful, the chicken salad could have been... More

Go for breakfast for delicious donuts or danish, breakfast sandwich, lunch they serve fantastic sandwiches and finish with one of their many baked goods. Haven't had anything I haven't liked. Every time we are in town, we always stop by. You must... More

Perfect stop for breakfast when you're in the area. Many bagels to Chios from along with cream cheese. I am celiac and was able to have one of the omelettes. Delicious!

Do not go there thinking all you are going to find there are bagels (all kinds of huge delicious bagels) but a small bakery of cookies, danish, cannolis, eclairs, freshly made sandwiches that come with either potato salad (just ok), macaroni salad, chips, and a slice of a dill pickle.
