Every time I go there, I hesitate but I don't know why, because it usually ends up being great, but you have to know what to order. Always ask if something is made in-house because you won't get hand-breaded chicken fingers like some other spots....More

My husband and I both have a gluten intolerance and sometimes find it hard to find breakfast places. The bagel cafe had the biggest, fluffiest and best omlettes we have ever tasted! Be warned, the portion sizes are GIGANTIC, no need for the extra side...More

A very eclectic cafe that serves a classic breakfast/brunch menu. My Vegan companion passed on this breakfast as choices for her were scarce. Cool nooks and tiny tables fill this space and it seems full every time we walked by. Toads in the Hole with...More

Not quite what we expected. If you want a big traditional breakfast this place has it all. If you want a simple bagel or baking look elsewhere.

Followed the advice of the front desk guy at the hotel and ended up at Bagel Cafe for breakfast. Delicious food (especially the hashbrowns!), huge portions and a nice setting. Highly recommend it!

Might have to wait to get seated, but worth the wait. With over 180+ items on the menu, there is something for everyone. We tried the eggs and cod and a Mexican dish with spicy sausage. Both delicious, a meal that stays with you a...More

I only had time to go once, but was not disappointed at all. I go there around 11:00 and had to wait about 15 mins to get in. I was seated close to the door and there was never a lull in the traffic coming...More
