Used them to cater two breakfasts for a large group and found them to be just average. I was hoping that they would use Panera's that I think is superior but they used Einstein's instead. Not enough variety for bagels and overall just plan boring. I know they are everywhere so there is a number of people who like them,... More

I go there with my mom all the time. She gets the bagels. I like their sandwiches. The bagels could have more "shmear" on them, but all are good.

Our Family likes Einstein Bagels over other sources and the Glen Ellyn store has a high sales level that means the bagels are always very fresh. The Monday bakers' dozen deal is an excellent value. Don is an experienced and excellent manager. As others have mentioned in their reviews, staff has it's issues, but my experience has been that I... More

Don and his crew do an admirable job amidst a customer flow that is anything but uniform --- it might be 30 kids from the nearby schools come in and are less than decisive on the ordering front. His permanent crew are top-notch young men and women but the newer crew have an appalling habit of stepping away from the... More

Typical Einstein fare, but very convenient for downtown Glen Ellyn. Great location for the commuters and for picking up a dozen bagels or so to bring to the office in the morning.

I know you say bagels are bagels, but the staff here is upbeat, quick, and efficient! Right in downtown Glen Ellyn just South of the tracks go to this place and enjoy the great atmosphere of downtown Glen Ellyn!

Had a meeting Friday morning at the Civic Center in Glen Ellyn. Went in to get a morning dup of tea and a breakfast sandwhich. The line was long but it moved very fast. I have always liked coming to this spot because of the variety and the speed. The quality seems to be consistent too. I will be back... More

Bagels are the best I've had in the Chicago area. The lox & bagel sandwich also comes with capers and is just perfect - pretty darn good coffee too

Large windows, sitting on the Main Street corner is a pleasant place to sit and have a bagel etc... Weekend mornings very busy inside and out making it at times impossible to get a table. However a bench close by is an option. Wish they had a gluten free option.

Liked the people behind the counter and the place is spotless.. Location is great for going into the city but, don't cut it too close to train departure time, it is on the outbound side of tracks.
