I stopped her for lunch and had a nice bagel with lox. It's not Zaro's (NYC) but still, very good. Hamantaschen was doughy and heavy, and rugelach was dry. Concentrate on the main courses - not the dessert.

Enjoyed it so much we went twice in our 3 day stay. Once for breakfast and the next day for lunch. Gluten free bread was available. Pancakes were tasty. Tried beef bacon for the first time and was pleasantly surprised.
