Living nearer Benzonia than Frankfort, I frequent L'chavim in Beulah. It is the only place I've found within a hundred miles that has actual, real, honest to goodness Bagels. Forget those strange baked things at Panera, or other places (sadly including some breakfast cafes) that...More

Had lunch here on a Saturday, the place was packed, but the sandwiches were well worth the wait, everything was delicious!

Lots of variety here - I remember this place from when I was little. Very happy to see that it's still in business!

Busy place. The bagels were definitely not your usual doughy Midwest bagel, but maybe the real NYC deal.

I visited on July 4 weekend (probably the busiest weekend of the year in Frankfort). Business was steady but not overcrowded. Everyone in my group ordered sandwiches, I ordered the Oy Vai. The bread and meat was great, the combination of ingredients amazing. Everyone enjoyed...More
