I visit this place frequently. I love the Burekas (particularly with olive and cheese, potato). You can also buy freshest of fresh bagels here. I always buy the mini bagels from here regularly. They have variety of cream cheese which goes with bagels very nicely. Recently they have made Burekas bit more expensive than it should be. No complaints otherwise.

Wow, we love this place. Wednesday was our first visit ever and, in the past four days, we ended up eating here three times. All the food we sampled was fantastic. Despite being packed with patrons, no matter what time of day you stop in, the wait staff takes good care of customers. Our third visit, six of us waited... More

Great bagels! Usually right out of the oven. Fresh ingredients on sandwiches. Busy on weekends and often a lineup, but if it wasn't good people wouldn't line up!

Always busy. Open only for breakfast and lunch. Tables very close together and due to noise levels very hard to carry on any conversation. Lots of families, Moms and Babies.

I stopped here for a coffee and stayed for breakfast. The service was excellent and so was the food. The young lady that served me was very pleasant. I will be back.

Pleasant surprise at What a Bagel. Excellent food and wonderful coffee. I had a blitzes and they were excellent. My kids had the smoked salmon on bagels and oh so good. Can't wait to come back.

I want to start by saying that i have always loved the bagels here and it is definitely one of our go to spots for breakfast. Today, however, I was very disappointed with their customer service! My sister and I came in for a quick breakfast and we both ordered tea lattes. They didn't have that on the menu so... More

The food is absolutely delicious! Had the Herb Pesto Omelette with salad and a bagel. Great service, nice place, but, extremely noisy. Despite the noise, we love this place. Highly recommend.
