Superb food. All staff were hustling with great purpose during our lunchtime stop on a Friday. Excellent service and great food. We'll be back.

I had a classic breakfast plate of eggs, home fries and a bagel which I found pretty good. Nothing special, but good food for reasonable pricing. The bagels are particularity tasty.

Went here for breakfast and had a delicious fresh breakfast bagel with the most amazing sweet potato chips. Service was really friendly and helpful. A cheap and filling way to start the day.

You can literally grab them coming out of the oven. Super soft and fresh. The smell will have you hooked. They charge a lot though to toast and put cream cheese on them though. A $1 bagel gets to $4 pretty quick... Coffee is good.

You choose your bagel yourself and it is usually still warm. The content is put in while you watch, and, if a sunny day, as it was for me, you sit on patio. Not the cheapest, but certainly the best, and very casual and consistent.

It is wonderful to hear that you enjoy our concept of fresh bagels right off the conveyor, savvysolo! You are so correct - our patio really is a treat, especially on sunny days. We look forward to continue providing you with exceptional food!!
