“Mediocre bagels; mediocre coffee”
Reviewed 31 August 2013

Everything here is fine. Not great. Fine. It's a chain and the employees are chain-like employees and the fare is consistent mediocrity.

margesty: Thank you for stopping in, and for taking the time to post a review. I appreciate your honesty. I'm sorry that you feel that you encountered "chain-like" employees; we do have 7 stores across New England, but we pride ourselves on our local help and enthusiasm.

“Great breakfast and lunch on main street.”
Reviewed 19 August 2013 via mobile

Amazing selection of bagels. They have eggs and many fresh ingrediants . Lunch sandwiches can be on either bagels or a nice selection of breads. Everything is fresh. Friendly service. Free wi-fi. Relaxing place to eat. They even have an area for kids.

“great sandwich lunch”
Reviewed 11 August 2013

We all enjoyed our sandwiches in this nice open refurbished space. I was surprised at how flavorful my grilled ham and cheese; the apples and honey mustard really brought out the flavor. The staff also prepared a simple grilled cheese for my daughter that wasn't on the sandwich board menu. Muffins and either pastries looked good but not tried by our party.
