“5 stars and yet underrated”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 18, 2014

The LOX bagel... amazing and priced fairly. The atmosphere was friendly and comfortable. Perfect place to stop in for a snack (half a bagel) or a full meal (a full bagel)!

“Delish Bagel Sammies”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 14, 2013

Great selection of sandwiches for breakfast or lunch at this small shop in Beacon. Great service too.

The only tiny negative is I wish they had more seating. The menu is so inviting and it just makes you want to sit down, relax and eat your sandwich -- very hard to do with limited seating.

“Authentic, tasty bagels and sandwiches”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 9, 2013

I have been here for both bagels to go and sandwiches to eat in. Both are amazing! The bagels are authentic and delicious, with many flavors to chose from. My favorite is the whole wheat with seeds. There are plentiful choices for sandwiches-both breakfast and lunch-served on your choice of bagel. Every one I've tried is delicious, and hand made to order! Highly recommended!!!

“Excellent bagels and sandwiches”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 30, 2013

I eat here on a pretty regular basis. The bagels are fantastic and the quality of everything (the meats, cream cheese spreads, veggies, etc.) is REALLY good. They have a wide variety of sandwiches too (and you can custom order all kinds of things).

The only downside is the service. The staff is very friendly, but this place gets crowded and it can take a LONG time to get your food. Most of the staff is young (high school/college kids) and it's not really clear where the line starts, who's next to order, do you pay here and order there? It can be chaotic. If you don't pay when you order, you may end up waiting AGAIN just to pay.

That said, the food is worth it and I will keep going back even though I have to wait 20 minutes for egg and cheese on a bagel. I think one of the reasons it takes so long is that you can custom order your sandwich and a lot of people seem to do that. They just need a better system.
