This is a bagel shop but there is a small restaurant in the back. It is a "go to the counter and order" place, but it is very good. The bagels are baked daily and the food is great. I am not comparing this to a top restaurant, but for breakfast, sandwiches and things like that, there is none better!

Town is lacking a really good deli--food begins to taste a bit institutional after a number of visits--service is good.

Once Upon A Bagel's bagels are really special! They're chewy with a light crust and worth going out of your way for. In addition to bagels, Once Upon a Bagel offers a full-service deli menu. Your order at the counter, wait at a table and they bring your food to you. The food is very competent deli food. You get your own drinks. The atmosphere is busy and business-like. It's a good place to eat, but it's not designed for lingering.

I'm not much of a breakfast eater, but I'd go back to this place. I loved their corned beef hash and the chicken soup. It was all so yummy, huge portions too!

Fresh bagels and good deli food. Great soups and corned beef sandwiches and all the rest that you would expect at a deli. May goodies to take out too/
