pretty traditional Bagel deli. Food is ok, but why are all the staff always so miserable. Luckily at the moment it gets by because it has no competition.

Stopped here this morning for a coffee. I had an iced coffee which was disappointing not as good as I have had before. Will be back to try again and sample the coconut and orange cake that looked delicious.

We stopped by for brunch and had toasted bagels which were nice, and a fair price too (although beware as prices were higher than what was written 80p for water for example turned out to mean £1.40!). The staff though we're very rude, and the service slow. We had long finished our food before our drinks arrived.

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.
