Nice little coffee shop.

Let me start with the soup. The soup they serve is amazing! It is so flavorful and delicious. Bagels are large and always fresh. There is no table service but that doesn't matter to me but it may to some.

Excellent coffee, snacks, and sandwiches. You can't throw a stick in Saratoga without hitting a coffee shop, and many of them are fine stops, but this one you should not miss. Sitting at a window stool will give you a front-row seat to sidewalk traffic, including the boys who park their Harleys on the street all day and night and... More

My friends and I stopped here for coffee one afternoon and the bagels and pastries looked so enticing that we came back the next day for breakfast. It didn't disappoint ... The various breakfast sandwiches (all on bagels, of course) were yummy and I really enjoyed the chicken salad sandwich. Reasonable prices too!

You have to visit this place early or else you have to fall in line waiting for favorite bagel thing, yes, it's true, it's really uncommon and very unusual types of bagel and it's different menu that you would love.

I know it's a coffee shop, but they push a large menu so I hold them to their food being as good as their coffee. I got a small Caesar salad and it was small. For $4.50 I expected more.

We stopped here the other morning before taking a stroll through Congress Park. There was a line at the counter but it moved quickly. There was a nice selection of muffins and baked goods in the case and the board above showed the typical cafe selection of espresso drinks, coffees with various flavors, and teas. There are bagels freshly made... More

Coffee and a bagel The coffee is good and the bagels are fresh. There is a large selection of spreads and bagel sandwiches to choose from, including a lox variety and a vegetarian option with avocado and pesto. Tea, soups, and tempting pastries are also on offer. Grab a seat by the window or outside to enjoy your cuppa and... More
