I have always found that a good bagel can be almost as good as a donut. Einstein Bros. Bagels always seems to deliver on a good bagel. You can get the bagel dressed any which way that you want. The staff is friendly and they are quite efficient. They have so many bagels that I don't know how they keep... More

The bagel sandwich is very good, the coffee is also very good! Highly recommend over Dunkin or Panera. I was hesitant to try until I got a coupon. Now it is a favorite!

Stopped in after a co worker brought in bagels to work, had the egg and bacon sandwich on a 3 cheese bagel and a vanilla hazelnut coffee. Very tasty! Have been back several times since and always good. They have an online email sign up that sends you coupons for Bogo or discounted items.

I love the taste and the price of the bagels at Einsteins. I also eat my lunch there at least once a week because of my favorite turkey/Swiss on a toasted pretzel bagel. Lots of hot and signature bagels to choose from. Staff is very friendly and hard working.

I make every excuse I can to eat here---mostly lunch; Love the $6 Mondays (13 bagels and I've learned to pre-order). My favorite sandwich is turkey and Swiss on a pretzel bagel--no one has pretzel and Asiago bagels that taste like Einsteins!!! Friendly employees who don't rush you from the table.

The staff at Einsteins is always friendly (especially Martha) and their bagels are always delicious,cheaper than competitors, and even less calories! My favorite is the pretzel bagel but their everything bagel and asaigo bagels are quite delightful. I go there once a week for lunch as their deli/lunch offers are very reasonably priced (with chips and a drink) and make... More

By far this place is the best place for bagels!! We love them! Large selection! They also make excellent lunches of course using their bagels for bread! My only advice is sometimes you have to wait a bit for your lunch if they are busy as they make it fresh so make sure you have the time, it's worth it... More

The bagels are always fresh and the lox sandwich can't be beat. The best place to go for breakfast on a Sunday morning.

Delicious bagel and schmear. We decided to get a dozen to go home with. When we got home, there were two bagels which had not been processed correctly. Flat as pancakes and totally wrong. We ordered everything by two in the different varieties and these flat ones were most likely supposed to be the plain bagel. I tried to review... More
