My go to place in town to get bagels for the family on the weekends. Also do good breakfasts. Definitely worth dropping in, if you are passing through town!

“Great bagels, nice choice of coffees”
Reviewed September 18, 2013

Not a fancy place by any means but a good, basic bagel stop. Great selection of bagels, a variety of Green Mountain coffees to choose from and plain little tables to sit and enjoy.

The cheddar bagels are delicious.. a meal since they have quite a bit of cheddar in them. A lot of yummy choices.

Kid friendly.

“My breakfast go-to”
Reviewed August 23, 2013

This is where we often grab breakfast when I visit - a bagel breakfast sammie? How can you go wrong?? I offer this advise, the everything bagel is often far too salty. Safer to stick to the plain. They add a lot of pepper to their eggs on your breakfast sandwich, which is AWESOME. The bacon is usually crispy. Yes, I ate bacon today.
Anyhow, worth a pop-in for a quick breakfast or hangover remedy before you go walk up Talcott Mtn. They take cash or plastic.

“Best Bagels in the Area”
Reviewed July 29, 2013

The bagels are always fresh and the toppings are what you would expect. The breakfast sandwiches are worth the trip.

“Not all impressed”
Reviewed July 21, 2013

Decent bagels, but both the times I went there, they were old and stale. People's opinions on what's fresh must truly vary, because I classify anything not baked the same day as old, and expect it to be sold at half price as such. Even if warmed up, it's still stale.
I also don't like corn meal on (or under) everything. It changes the taste, and not always for the better.
It's an okay place, I guess, but I wouldn't go out of my way to visit it.
