There is a reason why this place is packed for lunch everyday! I always order the Greek salad, Side scoop of tuna and a bagel. The flavours are amazing. Food is always fresh and service is outstanding. If you want to indulge, try their chocolate buffalo!

What a bagel is typically busy during the lunch hour seven days a week so be prepared for a bit of a wait. While you can order any of the salads in the menu, you can also create your own, choosing from a vast selection of fresh ingredients. The Israeli toast (grilled veggies and goat cheese) is also excellent. Bagels... More

Located in a small strip mall with plenty of parking. Hostess was friendly and fast seating us. Our Avocado Grilled Cheese was a large tasty serving but the fries that were supposed to come with it weren't delivered until a third of the meal was finished. The Greek Omellette while big in size could have been served hotter. The Two... More

I visit this place frequently. I love the Burekas (particularly with olive and cheese, potato). You can also buy freshest of fresh bagels here. I always buy the mini bagels from here regularly. They have variety of cream cheese which goes with bagels very nicely. Recently they have made Burekas bit more expensive than it should be. No complaints otherwise.

Wow, we love this place. Wednesday was our first visit ever and, in the past four days, we ended up eating here three times. All the food we sampled was fantastic. Despite being packed with patrons, no matter what time of day you stop in, the wait staff takes good care of customers. Our third visit, six of us waited... More

Great bagels! Usually right out of the oven. Fresh ingredients on sandwiches. Busy on weekends and often a lineup, but if it wasn't good people wouldn't line up!

Always busy. Open only for breakfast and lunch. Tables very close together and due to noise levels very hard to carry on any conversation. Lots of families, Moms and Babies.

I stopped here for a coffee and stayed for breakfast. The service was excellent and so was the food. The young lady that served me was very pleasant. I will be back.

Pleasant surprise at What a Bagel. Excellent food and wonderful coffee. I had a blitzes and they were excellent. My kids had the smoked salmon on bagels and oh so good. Can't wait to come back.
