Seems like every time we get within one more purchase for a reward Big Apple changes the program and does not carry previous purchases forward. Very annoying!

Bagels are great here but their loyalty program is frustrating. They have had three separate programs in the past two years and your “loyalty” does not transfer when they change to the new program.

Bagels are fresh daily and delicious. Lots of flavor choices too. Large and small muffins are also delicious. Breakfast and lunch sandwiches are available. And of course coffee and soft drinks. A reward program is available although their machine does not always work which if...frustrating. Indoor and outdoor seating is available.More

Never been to a Big Apple Bagels, but definitely would go back. Wide variety of bagel options, sandwiches and other assorted goods. The bagel sandwiches were great and the chocolate coffee was fantastic. We enjoyed it.

We eat breakfast here quite often on the weekends. The breakfast sandwiches are SO good. I usually get the Southern Tradition with bacon or sausage. A wide variety of bagels to pick from. I don’t like to bash other places so I won’t mention any...names but let’s just say that I haven’t had a breakfast sandwich on a bagel at my coffee stop since eating here! The bagels are made fresh and it really makes the difference! Actually their coffee is really good too. I’ve had lunch a few times and their turkey club is simply the BEST, most fresh sandwich...I have to say it may be one of my all time favorite sandwiches ever. The owner is fantastic (Kathy)...she pretty much remembers everyone’s names and makes you feel special. Oh and their reward program...if you are going to go “regularly”, definitely a must (from free drinks to $7 off of a visit quite often)! They have daily specials too (price breaks). They also make their own muffins that are fabulous! I see a lot of people getting take out (from single meals to bags to bagels and boxes of muffins maybe going to church or work).More

Lots of choices in bagels and they also have delicious muffins (large and mini). You can get a breakfast sandwich or lunch as well as coffee. Quick service.

We tried this place mid-morning for brunch. Wouldn't go back again. Assistants weren't very interactive with us or friendly. Food was nothing great at all. What did strike us was the uncleanliness of the place. Filthy, yes, filthy floor. Glass on exterior doors and interior...cabinets need a good clean. Base Inside of muffin cabinet needed a good clean. Instead of all the assistants being so immersed in chatting with each other they could try and keep the place clean. No newspapers in the newspaper rack BUT plenty of dirt and dust. Sorry for such a poor review and rating, but I tell it as it is. Won't go back again.More

I used to go here quite a bit before my low carb diet but when I did I loved just about all their bagel and muffin selection. The apple pie muffin is my favorite. The breakfast sandwiches are delicious too.

I tried this place many years ago, wasn't impressed so never went back. Today, I decided to give it another try. Big mistake. The bagel is small and doughy. Doesn't resemble any good bagel I have ever had. The coffee was also weak and tasteless....I settle on the black velvet because it was suppose to be a bold coffee. It is barely above brown water. Needless to say I will not be visiting ever again.More

Big Apple in Grand Blanc, MI is one of our favorite places to go for a quick meal and to stock up on freshly made bagels. Occasionally, we opt for fresh muffins. Both the bagels and muffins are made in a wide variety of flavors....Any of their muffins that have cream cheese are to-die-for. My favorite bagels are the cinnamon-raisin, poppyseed, and blueberry. They also have a small section for day-old bagels at about half price, which is a good deal.More

I have had many morning meetings (business and personal) at BAB in Grand Blanc. The atmosphere is friendly and charged with energy as people start their day with a quick bite and great conversation. The staff is friendly and efficient. The owner is generally present...and she is an outstanding example for her staff.More

The Big Apple Bagels is a nice quick stop for getting freshly brewed coffee to go with a bagel, muffin, or bagel egg sandwich. Friendly staff with a smile. Nice coffee selection with free refills.

This place always makes me feel welcome when I walk in the door. Rather I come in everyday or 3 months later. The owner always remembers me and my whole family and by our names. Great staff and great homemade bagels and muffins.
