The children wanted to go to Subways, not my cup of tea. They were glad in the end because they got a superb BLT bagel and some compose-your-own-hot-chocolate. The adults got one of the best smoked chicken avocado sallads ever. I am very picky with my cappucino, but this one was bery good. Extra points for the relaxing atmosphere and... More

Good variety of bagels and fillings...so nice for a light meal with a coffee or fruit drink. In expensive, and all food freshly made. I chose a fruit bagel with fresh sliced banana - plus coffee. Son in law had a tuna and cheese bagel...looked good to me as well...:)

In the middle of walking through this fairytale Dutch city, on a recommendation we stopped here for lunch, opting to eat outside overlooking the canal and being amid the pedestrians and bicyclists. Our sandwiches, salads and beverages were all quite good - not a complaint. The atmosphere made everything that much more delicious.

This was a lightly toasted bagel, soft cheese/jam, orange juice , and a hot drink .The sesame bagel was warm and crunchy, but not hard nor over cooked. There is an... More

Avoid on saturdays! It's way too crowded and staff is almost unable to cope! That aside this chain seems to have entered a slow decline. When it started it was innovative and new. Not cheap but you got sustainable, often organic, products turned into good food. Nowadays... Bagels seem to have shrunk and are turning into buns to satisfy the... More

The cafe is in the shopping street in the heart of the old city center in Leiden. It's a populair place, we were glad to find a table that was free. The interior fits with the classis style of the building. The staff was thoughtful and kind. The bagels are very tasty and are there in so many variations. I... More

There is also a wide range of hot and cold drinks. I had a very nice cup of coffee and a dark rye bagel with tuna... More
