Ordered two bagels. Both without butter and topped with peanut butter. Ate the bagels. All was good. Went to buy the already made bagels and checked the ingredients to be sure. Of course it contained eggs. Who uses eggs in bagels? I'm more than sure...More

Hi Microsnook, Thanks for the review. While we certainly have vegetarian topping options our bagel recipe isn't vegan. Our bagels are authentic Montreal style ( rather than New York ) and as such contain egg, they are also simmered in honey water which I believe...More

2 days in Auckland and 2 breakfasts at the best bagel shop. Day 1 salmon bagel = perfect. Day 2 = pastrami and habanero mustard. This place makes the best bagels done the old fashioned way. A must.

Thanks for the killer review Rich. The King ( salmon ) and Yodi are certainly two of our most iconic bagels!

Thanks for the amazing review Graeme. Yes we would love more indoor seating at all our stores but an 11 ton oven takes up a lot of room!

Well it's all a bit style over substance at first glance...pricey for a bagel and a bit too cool for school but then you get your freaking expensive bagel and it is ... delicious. I've been a repeat offender and I drop in when I...More

Thanks for the review. We yell the orders so the kitchen staff can start your bagel before the docket arrives ( which may be a couple minutes later ) This is important when we are really busy which happens a lot!

Got the triple m bagel. Was really good for a bagel shop! If you're super hungry you might want to order 2 bagels. You can tell they are Fresh because you can see them being made. Prices are between 7-14 per bagel. Coffee is good...More

Like uncooked bagels with no taste cream cheese then this is your place. Best feature the very average coffee. Sit in the courtyard (it's the only seating) and you can be entertained by the loud speaker yelling out the name of the orders....perhaps style over...More

I'm not the biggest bagel fan, but I have to say, the bagels here are damn tasty. It's got a lovely texture, different to the regular store bought ones or the ones used at many other cafes. I really enjoy their summer time special beverage...More

I came here for breakfast and had the king salmon and a latte. The salmon bagel was delicious, the latte the best I have had in quite a while and the environment really nice. Best place to stay your day!
