Took family for a quick bite after movie. Food was served quick and was all excellent. Black bean soup was especially good. No simply regular sweet tea, just a lot of fancy teas. Would prefer to have normal team as a choice.

Nothing could be better than getting a late night craving for a bagel, then be able to hop online and place an order that will be waiting for you as early as 7:00am. Bagels are fresh and delicious. Pastries and breads are great too.

We ate dinner there Friday 6/9. The food and service was great. The restaurant was very clean and had a good atmosphere. We both ordered the corn chowder, great bowl of soup. Would definitely recommend this and will go back.
