Good coffee and atmosphere!

Coffee is excellent, though my breakfast sandwich could have been better. The bagel was dry and crunchy in the wrong way. I'll give it another try next time.

Nice atmosphere with great little bar to look out onto street. Ordered medium cappuccino and got a cup full of air. Tasted like all she put in it was espresso shot and foam, no milk or cream. Probably a good place most of time but I don't think they trained the girl well.

I’ve eaten breakfast here lots of times because I love bagels, and they are open very early in the morning. I’ve never had a bad bagel here, and I’m happy that someone in the Sierra is actually baking their own bagels and not having them trucked in from Sacramento or Reno. Plus, their bagels are very good. They make their... More

We split the cream cheese and salmon - Yum! It was small for the big price, but worth trying - once. I saw other sandwiches that looked more substantial. The fruit smoothies looked really good but we didn't try any, we had coffee instead, which was good. We ended up in this place because the place we really wanted to... More

One of the best bagels we've ever had. We had the salmon lox sandwich on the pesto/ mozzarella bagel, with a pickle on the side. It was a great accompaniment to our lattes, and was so good we even went back a second day! Local ambiance was fun and flavorful, but seating is limited so come early.

I had the pesto mozzarella bagel and the berry blast smoothie w/whipped cream. It was excellent! My wife had the apple cinnamon bagel w/butter and hot chocolate. It was also very delicious. They had so many other kinds that we wanted to try them all but narrowed it down to those. We also tried their cookies (sugar w/icing and sprinkles... More

We make an annual trip to Lake Tahoe every summer, and every time we always drop by to pick up some bagels and take them back to the house. My personal favorite are the pesto bagels, they are to die for! They have a great variety of bagels and all are very good. They also sell spreads that complement the... More

I went here 2 mornings over our 5 days in Tahoe for bagels & smoothies and was very disappointed this trip. I've been a customer here for years and I'd guess 50x. First, the bagels are not a good as they used to be. The Cinnamon Raisin barely had any cinnamon taste too it, and about half the amount of... More

Our family ate here several times for breakfast during our weeklong Tahoe vacation. They have many varieties of bagels to choose from and they are usually warm. My daughter absolutely loved the mozzarella and pesto bagel. They also have various pastries. I thought that the maple walnut scones were fabulous. Coffee was good too. The people that work here must... More
