Go get the fresh bagels!!! Try the Parmesan. The ice cream is very good. They make their own ice cream cookie sandwiches. ..best bagels in the state. Fresh every morning.

Haven't had one of those in years. For some reason, I had a craving the other day and stopped in. As others mentioned, they do tend to run out of varieties but they still had a dozen fragels. Which I promptly bought :)

Just because it is round with a hole in it does not make it a bagel. These are light weight and small with a more crumbly texture than the correct chew a real bagel has. Think of something you would get athe a supermarket or at Panera. Add to this that they run out of most bagels by mid day... More

I come from New York and it is hard to get a good bagel and this place has it!! Even rye bagels and egg which is impossible. Always a line out the door to get these. The staff can be hit and miss and they do sell out fast and they don't always have what you want which can be... More

This place is not much to look at, but what they do in the back is memorable. Friendly staff and great coffee to go with those authentic, fresh bagels. They also sell some excellent cookies that you can try while you wait to get your order. On my drive to work, I pass them every morning and only wish I... More

I have NEVER had a bad bagel here. Honestly, when relatives come to town, this is where I get their bagels from (and I used to work for a competitor LoL!). This shop is sort of a hole-in-the-wall place tucked between a few other retailers in an unassuming strip mall off a busy intersection. Once you shoe horn your vehicle... More

I really like the quality of the Bagels, and the attitude of the employees. They always greet me with a smile, and the bagels are consistent. I moved to a apartment bldg about a mile from there in 1992, and in spite of my discipline, i would stop by for 2 bagels at least once a week. I live about... More

The service was nice, the food was good, and the value was fine. Sometimes the service took too long. This was disturbing.

Soft chewy center, crisp on the outside. Couldn't ask for a better bagel, cream cheese was nice an light and the veggie actually had large chunks present. Variety was perfect. I took 3 dozen to go with 5 containers of cream cheese.
