We've been going to Bagel's and Brew for many years since we live in the neighborhood. The food is always good, especially make your own omelette, chipotle ranch turkey sandwich and the bagels themselves. They are the only bagels in the area that can still be eaten 2-3 days after you buy them. They definitely have the recipe down. Cleanliness... More

"Bagel and Brew is the one at the end of the plaza - and they are always busy!" The California resident holding his Ralph bags warned me.

Little fruit flies are the evidence. Manager has been... More

I can walk to this place, it is always busy and there is a reason. The bagels are good and they serve a great breakfast as well. Convenience is key on a Saturday/Sunday morning, but along with that you get a yummy meal. I also stop for one of their great sandwiches at least once a month. There are a... More

This is the best sandwich place for miles around. Each sandwich is unique and flavorful. There is chicken (always a breast, not sliced), turkey, etc etc.

The bagels are okay, the coffee is okay, sandwiches are good. Breakfast eggs seemed microwaved. Local place, just wish they were better with the food.
