The staff is friendly and helpful. They are experienced and gracious. I can't say enough about the bagels. You have to try it to appreciate how much truth there is in this review.

Great fresh coffee, delicious (big) bagels, a lot of pastries and smoothies to choose from also. They also have a lunch menu and sell cakes. The prices are fair, the place was very busy but well worth the wait.

If you like large, bread-type bagels, and lots of different flavors (strawberry, blueberry, sourdough, seeded, plain, whole wheat, sesame seed, and more), this is the place to go. They also make amazing desserts (fruit topped flan type cakes) and also serve coffee and smoothies.

If you want a sweet creamy smoothie, they make them here. Maybe too sweet. Filled with caramel. At least that was my experience. I don't like bagels, but if I'm going to get a bagel the big, non standard bagels here are the best bagels.

We needed a bunch of bagels for a school brunch. We ordered a variety of bagels,and they were all fresh and delicious. It is hard to pick just one. The pastries are also very good and fresh. The Bagel Cafe is a great place for breakfast and lunch.

Okay here's the deal, I've never been a big fan of bagels. They're heavy and doughy and they sit around in your stomach for hours after you eat them. But that isn't the case at the Bagel Cafe. Their bagels are fairly light and nearly fluffy and they are sooooo good! My favorite is the jalapeno bagel with cream cheese.... More
