I pick up a bakers dozen of bagels here regularly when I'm in town. I take them to my clients. This is a very cool business with great bagels. Love the area of Detroit as well.

I had a ham, egg, cheese, and avocado with a cup of coffee. I was in and out in 5 minutes and enjoyed the bagel out on the lawn in a comfortable chair. Exactly what you'd want from a coffee and bagel place.
