Never a bad experience!

I know you say bagels are bagels, but the staff here is upbeat, quick, and efficient! Right in downtown Glen Ellyn just South of the tracks go to this place and enjoy the great atmosphere of downtown Glen Ellyn!

Had a meeting Friday morning at the Civic Center in Glen Ellyn. Went in to get a morning dup of tea and a breakfast sandwhich. The line was long but it moved very fast. I have always liked coming to this spot because of the variety and the speed. The quality seems to be consistent too. I will be back... More

Bagels are the best I've had in the Chicago area. The lox & bagel sandwich also comes with capers and is just perfect - pretty darn good coffee too

Large windows, sitting on the Main Street corner is a pleasant place to sit and have a bagel etc... Weekend mornings very busy inside and out making it at times impossible to get a table. However a bench close by is an option. Wish they had a gluten free option.

Liked the people behind the counter and the place is spotless.. Location is great for going into the city but, don't cut it too close to train departure time, it is on the outbound side of tracks.

We've been going here for years, the food is very good, but the staff on some days is not up to par. I've lost count of how many times they have goofed up our order. The manager Don is a great guy and he always makes it right for us, but it's still a hassle. Besides that it is a... More

I used to eat here quite a bit, but the past several times, either my sandwich was not made correctly or the sandwich didn't look anything like the photos. The restaurant needs to be cleaned more during the day. The tables need to be kept cleaner as well as the floors.

Our favorite bagel chain anywhere, wish there was one in our town in the East. Salad ok, seemed a bit pricey for a pre-made. We stop here every time we are visiting for a quick lunch. Cute atmosphere. Great town.

Right downtown, in the center of the business district. Good coffee, fresh bagels and smiling helpful servers. What more do you need?

Good bagels, small portions. Try the salmon bagel or the humus. If you need something quick this is a great choice.
