Perfect for breakfast or lunch. They have a large variety of fresh made bagels and toppings, as well as eggs, sandwiches and more. They have a good variety of specialty cream cheeses. My favorite if the Lox Cream Cheese. They are always busy. Go Nosh!

Small place with 12 closely spaced tables. However the atmosphere is great. The bagels are delicious. My favorite is the everything bagel with garlic and herb. The eggs are really good. Desserts are also good. Super for breakfast or a light lunch.
