This is a great spot to grab a quick and delicious breakfast. The coffee is also fresh and excellent. Plenty of street parking and a small lot in the back.

The bagels are great and they have various options to make a breakfast sandwich. Everyone is very friendly and the restaurant is spotless. They have water infused with cucumbers etc... which is a really nice touch. Prices are very reasonable.

These are full on legit bagels. Not your mass-produced steamed/soft product like the chains have. We tried one of each of what they had when we went. All were excellent, but the jalepeno pretzel bagel was exceptional. Everything you love in a pretzel and a...More
