I REALLY want to be excited about Signature Bagels and Deli. I've been here a handful of times over the last several years, twice in the last week. The bagels are fine. That's it. To me they are just fine.
The selection is okay. It's all the usual stuff... well, most of the usual stuff. No egg bagels, which I love. Maybe sometimes they have them... not this week. No bagels with cheese on them, cheddar or pepper jack would be nice. They do a jalapeno which is fine, but not a jalapeno cheese and the jalapeno is so fine in there, chunkier would be yummier. Maybe that's it. The ingredients aren't chunky enough to stand out. The online bagels are good, but the onions on top are already black, so after toasting they are pretty burned... not so yummy that way. The bagels are okay, but I just don't get excited about them.
I did once get an open faced bagel, lox, tomato & capers sandwich and that was tasty, but I haven't tried any of the other sandwiches. The cream cheese is good and not too whipped.
I won't order the iced tea because I did once and it was AWFUL. Could just be the water or the pipe the water came out of but it tasted sulfury and just bad. So that is a bummer because I do love iced tea with my bagel.
Overall, they are fine. If you want a bagel in Escondido, it's this or Panera, so give it a try. Others seem to love Signature.
