I found this place on Yelp and it had great reviews so we opted to enjoy our breakfast bagel here. They had great service and are so busy that they provide you with a pager that goes off when your bagel is ready. There isn’t...More

I enjoy the bagels which are fairly akin to NY style...of course, the water is different... However, I once ordered an egg on toasted bagel and landed up with a bagel that was nuked in a microwave...a real way to kill any good bagel! If...More

We microwave the egg, but do not microwave bagels. Are bagels are fresh, made every day. We would never put a bagel in the microwave. We have a special bagel toaster to toast the bagels. I can pretty much assure you, your bagel was not...More

Hi Jim, Thanks for your review and glad you enjoyed the bagel. Sorry about the long lines, but it was Modernism week here in Palm Springs. That means more people in town than the week between Christmas and New Years. We do our best, but...More

Excellent, delicious and well-priced! Nicely laid-out, modern little bagel spot in Palm Springs. Perhaps the best spot for bagels in town!! I cannot wait to come back again!

Made the correct way, these are too small and overpriced.... but the closest to a real bagel we’ve found in the valley. After 40 years of near daily consumption I feel strongly about what a bagel should be..... and these need more dough and less...More

Although we enjoyed our bagels we thought they were incredibly overpriced and the receipt was difficult to decipher...seems they charge you for toasting them (they all come toasted unless you specify otherwise) and the smear ranges in price right up the +$4.00.
