Firstly, the manager is a saint. He makes it all right from catering to sit down meals and his staff know to follow his warm, kind nature. All of the food is responsibly sourced so there is no bitter taste of remorse for factory eggs and corporate junk from who-knows-where. Vegetarians and vegans as well as gluten- and sugar-free people are all accommodated. Sure, it's an older building with exposed brick so it can be noisy but what do you expect at such a popular and hopping place? They have a generous community bulletin board, recycling bins, and neat messages (without being preachy) in the washrooms. This is a small family of shops in New Hampshire but it feels nothing like a chain but more like a nice, little family run independent place. You will love it.

I am from NYC and these bagels are not even close. They are the best you can get in the area. Service is wonderful, the cream cheese flavors are great, and the atmosphere is fantastic.

Golgo8: The bagels might not be *exactly* the same as NY bagels (although we prepare and bake them the same way), because our flour is unbleached and unbromated. While the taste might be slightly different, the healthy effects for your body are what we pride ourselves on! The cream cheese is all locally provided, and flavored in the store. I am glad that you had a good experience, please stop back anytime! ~Jennifer

Bagels are made onsite. They were so fresh and light. Sidewalk seating available, as well as plenty of indoor seating.

The food was excellent. We got a tuna salad sandwhich and an everything bagel. One of the best I've had. Great stop.
