Went to Syds yesterday for the first time but I was with a Syds veteran. He had his favorite Lox & Bagels and I had an Asiago bagel with sun dried tomato spread. Both were fabulous and the shop is warm and comfortable - perfect...More

As a business owner and manager I cannot understand why this business is open. Such slow and sullen employees serving (if one can use that word) bland espresso and sodden croissants and bagels. I left everything only tasted before leaving and locating another coffee shop.

Great place to stop in for a bagel or something more substantial to start your day. The coffee was also very good, with any starbucks-like alternative that you may crave. A steady stream of locals and others headed into the mountains for a day of...More
