I had breakfast here three mornings in a row while I had business errands nearby ... now I'll have to make up excuses to come into Gainesville so I can eat here again. Excellent bagels, pleasant atmosphere, good coffee, reasonable prices.

I last reviewed this place about a year ago, and it had always been awesome. The food still is, but over the last few months, the staff has gone waaaay downhill, and they're killing this place. The bagels are still always awesome and fresh, and the prices are reasonable. The owners are very environment & community conscious, even carrying Fair... More

Great bagel restaurant! I go at least once a week. They are my favorite bagels! I love how it's locally owned and its all fresh! Only problem for me is that it's a little expensive for my budget but well worth it!

Stopped here for lunch. Got the lunch deal with chips and a drink. The bagel sandwich with turkey and bacon was terrific. Your choice of toppings and condiments. The bagel was crispy on the outside and chewy inside. Just right!

The best BAGLE bakery in Gainesville. All bagels are made on site and superb. You are truly blessed if you are lucky enough to arrive and order when they have a fresh batch of bagels. I love going their for lunch also. One of my faves in town. I will continue to dine here for years to come.

I've suffered so many of this places competitors over the years: bready bagels, in-authentic toppings, pre-made or bought-in fillings, and either poor service or poor quality. NOT HERE! The bagels are good, chewy, boiled-and-then-baked NY water bagels, and the large salt crystals on the salt bagels are like you'd find on a pretzel (instead of the sand you get at... More

I've been going to this locally owned, fairtrade minded coffee and bagel shop for years - a decade or more. Through that time, the owner has stayed true to his mission of doing business directly with Guatemalan coffee farmers. I can tell the differencebetween this organic coffee and other brands. We only buy coffee from this place. We get the... More

This place was pretty pricey for what it was, but still pretty yummy. Nothing about it convinced me to come back after one try, however.
