Popped in for a coffee and beigel, won't be returning. Unwelcoming, brusque staff with bad attitudes - "Service with a smile" this certainly isn't. If I were the owner I'd think seriously about the staff I employ as they are certainly deterring repeat business.

Good little find. Does authentic Jewish foods. Bagels. Garlic gerkins. Potato latka. Etc. Service is hit and miss. Constantly having to repeat yourself

Upon entering the Deli this afternoon I gathered the items that I wanted to purchase and waited in line. A female staff member completely ignored me and acted like I was invisible. The previous reviews on here are completely accurate and I can't comprehend why the owners aren't paying attention to a stream of negative reviews.

The fodd is really delicious and nicely presented, however the staff leave a lot to be desired. Unsmiling, unfriendly and robotic, and you just know that they are speaking about you as soon as your back is turned. Shame really as the food is good and reasonably priced. Nearly everyone I speak to says the same thing about the staff,... More

Nice place for a quick coffee and bagel. Not a great selection but quick and efficient. Miserable, unfriendly staff.

Miserable and unwelcoming. Food was ok but small in size. Staff were miserable and the girl serving made it seem like she was doing us a favour. No atmosphere. Would NOT go again.

We stopped of for a coffee and croisant and to collect some genuine bagels, which are far superior to the supermarket versions. The food and drink were OK but the service was efficient but unsmiling, so we didn't really feel welcome.

The restaurant was good and then they decided to charge for hot water even though you are having lunch. Service has become awful, no customer service. Don't go here unless you don't mind paying for hot water!!!!!! Disgusting.
