The bagels appear oven baked from start to finish. They do not appear boiled first consequently they are airy and like eating a pillow as opposed to a dense round of bagel dough as they should be.

Some of the best bagels (made on site) I have had in a long time. Big, and soft, and just awesome. Had egg and cheddar cheese oatmeal-date bagel and I was so impressed. Coffee was really good. Expect long lines and extra time it was busy in early AM.

Service was quick and polite. Bagels were soft and you could taste the quality of the ingredients. We enjoyed the generously- portioned fruit cup. If I lived near here, I'd come everyday!

This place has bagels in many different flavors.. Strawberry bagel is my favorite, they are light and airy bagels and cream cheese delicious. They serve shakes, coffee and have fresh breakfast burritos. This is a good breakfast place or on the go snack.

Food is amazing, bagels are super fresh. Burritos are divine but you have to get there super early to buy some, because there is only a quantity made daily.

Everything is fresh and there are many varieties. The Bagel Cafe & Bakery has excellent bagels and beautiful pastries. The sandwiches are excellent. The cakes are gorgeous. The staff is friendly and helpful. They are experienced and gracious. I can't say enough about the bagels. You have to try it to appreciate how much truth there is in this review.

Great fresh coffee, delicious (big) bagels, a lot of pastries and smoothies to choose from also. They also have a lunch menu and sell cakes. The prices are fair, the place was very busy but well worth the wait.
