Good fast breakfast.

We ate here more than once while on vacation. It was good food and great for picking up a quick breakfast before we started our sightseeing. The bagels were fresh and had several choices on the menu of sandwiches.

Having travelled here with my fiancé, I wandered out from working at my hotel to grab a bite while she is out impressing the world at an international medical conference. Having read around and preferably after somewhere relatively affordable, I stumbled onto this little place just away from the Chinatown gate. What it turned out to be was a well-priced,... More

It is a good place for a quick Breakfast to go but sometimes you need to wait since there were only 2 of them working on Oct 31st around 11 am. Don't get me wrong but they served a very good bagel with all the frills for your breakfast needs. Unfortunately, I didn't like the Bubble Tea I ordered since... More

Excellent Bagels and Sandwiches if you are in a hurry. There are many types of bagels offered and choices of filling you can have with your bagels too.

Those bagels are better than those I was forced to eat in London but way below to those one can get in New York. I had high hopes based on the previous reviews but ultimately was disappointed. No typical bagel fillings either.

We were looking for a quick breakfast before our drive up to Napa and stumbled upon Posh Bagel. Soooo gooddddd. My husband and I love breakfast sandwiches and they did not disappoint. I got an everything with sausage/egg/cheese and my husband got the smoked salmon/cream cheese/capers/etc sandwich. Very reasonably priced and was steaming hot. Good bagel options and the donuts...

We ate here twice for breakfast. Prices are good and so is the food. They have everything from bagels to breakfast sandwiches and their coffee is very good also.

Great tasting bagels (quality ingredients and rich selection) location (near wharf) is also nice (decor is just ok though). If you are a coffee lover however, BYOC (bring your own coffee) as the one they serve is forgetable. Would certainly recommend and will be returning

Nothing fancy. I had the most amazing sourdough bagel with lox cream cheese. It was so light and good I could have eaten two. Price for bagel and cheese $4.50. Coffee tea and juice fruit etc all avail. Def a good cheap meal.
