“will never be back”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 7, 2013

So sad to say that I'll be taking my business elsewhere. Orders are often wrong, but the bigger problem is that they DO NOT CARE. They do not care about fixing mistakes, they do not care about letting a customer walk out unhappy, the manager cannot be bothered to even leave the office to apologize or attempt any kind of resolution at all. Total failure to even apologize for the inconvenience. They make it clear they don't care about my business, I won't be back for any reason.

“Nothing like a NY deli”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 22, 2013

If you want to stake your reputation on bagel's they should be MUCH better than these. We found them fresh (that's good) but with texture more like biscuits than the bagels we are accustomed to in the Northeast.
Other things might be good, but it's not worth a repeat trip for barely average bagels.

“3 strikes you're out.........”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 28, 2013

HAVE BEEN THREE TIMES, DISAPPOINTED THREE TIMES
First time simple bagel with tuna: boring no flavor barely a scoop of tuna , the guys who make the sandwiches are slow and don't seem to be interested.

Second trip: egg on a bagel, dry... boring.., slow,
sounds like a boring order but I tons of folks eat 'em everyday and if you made it a s tatsteless as this you wouldn't bother

Third trip: yep tried the old bagel with an fried egg this time asked for twice toasted buttered bagel with double egg and bacon..
TWENTY (20) minutes later got the bagel, dry, no butter on it over cooked egg , over done bacon( which when I asked why it was taking so long the guy who took my order said "oh you got an egg those take a while..."
so while I stood there like a fool. I saw al the other order com out, small boring sandwiches one by one, barely any meat, cheese whatever was served looked sad and tasteless, I saw turkey sandwiches on rolls ( small dry ) a melt of some sort, bagel sandwiches ( the sad tuna again) the food just sitting there or taking forever your choice, better off for the same price at a diner or too jays, anything is better than this!

“Cute & Quick”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 4, 2013 via mobile

My husband and I live downtown & visit Makebs regularly as he says they have the best Nova in town! It took me 4 visits before I enjoyed the food (I don't eat Nova's)... And I recently found the ham & cheese omelet to be a good choice. Stay & enjoy inside, outside or take it to go... They have fast service.
