Proper Bagel slays it with their hand-sliced Nova, scallion dill cream cheese, red onion, tomato and capers on a bagel. Also stoked by their house pickles on the side. Their chunky chicken salad shreds the gnar.

We stopped in here for a light lunch after touring Belmont. This is counter service, so a line will form. Not bad when we got there. We ordered a couple bagel sandwiches and a salad. All the food was excellent. Would definitely come back.
