You get here the best bagels in town. There bread is excellent too. And I love the owner. The owner is very friendly, fun to talk to and a good character. If you go regularly there, you become part of the family.

I would recommend driving to Knoxville before eating at this deli. The prices are more in line with NYC deli prices. The owner is bitter and her employees feel and reflect her attitude. I recommend finding another place for a nosh.

Simply the best bagels and other baked goods. No where else compares. We have known the owners since it opened in 1994. The quality is always excellent. No matter what is ordered you can't go wrong.
