We were looking for an espresso and saw this charming place. It was decorated so pretty out front with all the fall decorations! The inside was charming, and warm, and had a great vibe to it. You order at a counter, then take your drink/food into a dining area with cool, eclectic furniture (I loved the hardwood floors). My friend... More

This is one of the most well run bagel establishments I have ever visited. The line is often long, but, before you know it, they are taking your order. The person who handles your order and takes your money (unfortunately they don't take credit cards), generally does not do the food preparation.

Maybe the staff/owners are worn out from the sheer volume of customers because of their great location, but after a few visits we've started to feel like our business is somewhat of a burden given the attitudes of those behind the counters. A smile and thank you would go a long way...especially for those dealing with the inconvenience of cash... More

What a wonderful bagel cafe! A sure stop for my friends who visit our home in York. They must experience the delicious bagels and egg combos... Our family has been visiting this adorable place for over 12 years. They could not be kinder... I am disappointed to see the negative reviews, but feel that they would always make it right!... More

We stop here for breakfast at least once every time we're in York. Nice variety of options and good coffee. They even offered to let me try the apple butter, which I had never had before. Parking can be tight and lines can be long, but we lucked out showing up after Labor Day this year!

We came here for lunch. I ordered a chicken wrap and came across inedible pieces of chicken. Fortunately, no questions were asked when I returned this item and got my money back. They also need to reorganize their fork location. I believe I waited 10 minutes for 2 plastic forks...

I have had better. Simple order was done wrong (asked for butter on bagel). Cash only which is inconvenient and strange.

The chicken salad sandwich will blow your mind. It has delicious and fresh chicken mixed with awesome spices and herbs to create a perfect flavor. The sandwich also came with the usual tomato, lettuce, and onions, but also came with sprouts (which usually is charged extra at bagel places). The coffee was also really good and there is a good...

The indoor and outdoor sitting areas are gorgeous. The service is speedy and the staff is incredibly attractive. I would recommend this place to anyone who likes food, particularly breakfast or...

I have been here many times and think the sandwhiches and coffee are terrific. Love their bagels and the hazelnut/coconut coffee is out of this world. The downside is the help have the most obnoxious tip jar I have ever seen anywhere and I cant imagine why the owner allows this. You really feel as if they might just spit... More
