“Relax with a coffee and bagel”
Reviewed November 17, 2012

Great spot on broadway in Saratoga Springs. Order your food, pay, find a table and relax. The coffee is hot and full of flavor, the bagels are delicious and there is a great selection of cream cheese or eggs to put on your bagel. There is no table service, therefore you aren't rushed at all. However, the tables don't get cleaned by staff as often as they probably should. Most of the crumbs are easily swept away with a napkin, but the sticky residue from the cream cheese was a little problematic. The staff is very friendly and helpful,

“Dependable coffee and conversation”
Reviewed November 16, 2012

Certainly a place where the pulse of Saratoga shows. Coffe was excellent, great home made bagels with lots of choices to smear them with. Only disappointment was the way the place was layed out for seating with large couches blocking movement in the center of the space. More thought could be given to make the space more user friendly for customers

“Good food & coffee, but so so busy”
Reviewed November 16, 2012

Great bagels--especially the apple cinnamon ones they have in the fall--and I love their coffee and soups. Workers can be somewhat dismissive, and I've witnessed the shift managers talking down to and making fun of the other employers at times. Incredibly busy, so if you want to come for a casual conversation and to relax, this isn't the place for you unless you come later at night. I wish they continued serving bagels and making sandwiches until closing--they often stop serving them an hour or 2 before closing. Still, a nice spot if you don't mind a bit of chaos in the mornings and on the weekends.

“Good Soups”
Reviewed November 5, 2012

The soups here are actually very good in the winter months. Be sure to hold your spot int he line of the college groupies will work their way in front of you.

Also, don't be afraid to order your drink or meal "for here" to have it served on real plates and in real cups.
