I went there for Breakfast on a Saturday morning. There was a long line but it moved relatively quickly. The service was fast and efficient. I had an everything bagel with Lox and it was excellent! I definitely recommend this place!

I grew up in NYC, so I love authentic bagels and crusty sourdough bread. They have over a dozen varieties, of which the "works" is my favorite, followed by jalepeno. The black walnut raisen bread is outstanding, as is the olive, black pepper parmigian and parmigian. This bread makes a plain sandwich special. They also have scones, hallah, sandwichs and... More

If you're looking for a great whole-wheat loaf that hasn't been sweetened like the supermarket stuff, this is the place to go.

This place has the nicest staff. The same girls have worked there for along time. They can turn a long line into a short line in no time.. The bagels are always fresh. I don't need to get them toasted as they are of the perfect consistency as is as they are freshly made. My wife always enjoys when I... More

The bagels are made the old fashioned way- boiled in a vat of boiling water then baked in a revolving oven on burlap boards. No steam ovens here. Chewy good bagels- hard to find with the chains doing the quick and easy bake off program.

They have it down pat, a great staff, pleasant environment and really good bagels at a fair price. This is the place for a good breakfast, eat in or take out. The juice is fresh and the coffee exceptional. I wouldn't buy a bagel anywhere else!
