“Eh.. Bagels suck”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 22, 2014

If you are used to a good bagel and have some sort of bagel standards... steer clear from this place. But if you don't really care then i guess this place will do.

“Better for Meetings than Coffee”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed January 7, 2014

This is a good place for meetings with wifi. The bagels are pretty good. The coffee is more expensive than Central London.

Everyone knows where it is though so a good place to meet.

“Good for meetings and a quick lunch”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed February 14, 2013

The restaurant is a good place for meetings, it usually has empty tables and free wifi.

Bagels are average and sometimes not fresh.

“Friendly service and nice bagels”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 23, 2012

We came here for lunch, change from the usual Subs, KFC, etc and found the food and service good. Friends had the bagels and said they were nice
Really liked the wrap, and the black coffee. I would recommend for lunch.I also like they put the calorie count on the tray paper.
We also tried the Rohrmoser outlet, when I had a complete. Good.
I think there are also 3 other outlets in San Jose, according to the leaflet I picked up.

“OLD BAGELS & WAY OVER PRICED, NOT WORTH IT.....”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed March 29, 2012

i order a bagel with cream cheese and banana bread.... the bagel was hard it was not fresh.... the banana bread was old and dry...... ordered a black coffee and it came with milk at least they changed that....my overall experience is this place is terrible and should not be recommened on trip advisor......not the first time i have given this place a try but it will be the last they just cannot get it right ...

they server you day old bagels and try to say they were fresh they toast it so they can try to trick you..... when i talked to the lady to explain she gave me a attitude and said no english...

just overall bad and very pricey for not being abe to eat my food... it cost $12.00 dollars for a bagel that was old and hard... the banana bread dried out and small.... the coffee was $4.00 for a black coffee .......

very bad and very expensive......
