Incredible bagels but suggest you eat that day because they go stale fast. Love the Western sandwich on a jalapeno cheddar bagel. Many selections but seem to run out so have a back up.

I picked up a 1/2 dozen bagels at about 10am and they were freshly made and warm.also picked up cream cheese and salmon. They have a selection of cream cheese. I bought the veggie and it was delicious! Delicious 🤤

The bagels were fresh and tasty but the service was painfully slow. Don't go here if you are in a hurry. On a busy Sunday morning they never cleaned the tables.

Bagels are prepared to order with the wide variety of cream cheese that is offered, many seasonal flavors, such as pumpkin in September and October, and others such as plain, onion and chive, lox, strawberry, maple, etc. Bagels are definitely different, always warm and crisp.

The bagels are freshly baked all day and above average in size, texture and taste. Breakfast and lunch sandwiches made to order, and are tastefully prepared. Soups to go with the sandwiches at lunch. Friendly with ample seating.
