I hit this place on a whim while visiting family in the area. We were all hungry, didn't have much time, but sure didn't want fast food. We saw Country Bagel on our way into West Chester, and figured we'd give it a try. The whole family piled into the place and though we were noisy and grumpy, we received a warm welcome from the owner and staff. The selection was a bit overwhelming for the kids, so Rob (I think he's the owner) made some suggestions to find something the kids would love. After a few minutes we had piping hot bagel sandwiches served to us. Now, I was expecting a chain-store dryness and blandness...but was blown away by the freshness and flavor of these treats! Not only were these delicious, there were (as my kids called them) "Big Bagels". Everyone left full and happy, and the grumpy travelers arrived at the grandparents in great spirits!
Whether on the way or out of the way, we're hitting the Country Bagel every time we come back to PA! I simply love those sandwiches, and what great people running the place!
