“Excellent bagels and smoked salmon”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 12, 2014

Coffee also good. There's a line outside on weekends...deservedly. The bagels are fresh and delicious. Excellent value for money.

A couple of tables outside too.

“Love this place... Wait in line!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 30, 2014

The weekends will be sure to greet you with a long line, but its worth it. The bagel and egg sandwiches are good and everything is always fresh.

The owner is always around helping out and love love the funky 70s and 80s jams they play.

This is a weekend must stop for me.

“Twice in 3 Days for the Pastrami with Mustard!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 11, 2013

This is truly the best pastrami. I can't stop thinking about it. The whitefish was good, but the pastrami with mustard was worth the trip to Philadelphia ( or Carnegie Deli in NY) . Unfortunately they totally mixed up our takeaway order on an outrageously busy Sunday and we got the Russian dressing with Coleslaw Pastrami, which was less desirable as it was greasiest than the Mustard version and didn't compliment as well. I made 2 trips in 3 days. Weekdays are quiet but weekends the line is out the door with an accordion out front. I will be back!

“Long line is worth it”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 16, 2013

This is my go-to bagel joint. The bagels are Montreal style, which means they are chewy and dense. They also serve great coffee. It is hard to snag a table and the layout of the restaurant is a little awkward when you stand in line. I still say the bagels are worth the wait!

“Good Price”

My wife and I had been there several times when we are in Upenn, the price is reasonable and I like the bagels there.
