Great place for breakfast and lunch. Their bagels are amazing, they spread a lot of cream cheese on, and the service is great! You can run in and get a bagel to go or sit and eat in.

Stopped for a quick breakfast this morning. Bagels cream cheese & coffee. Usually 2 or 3 times a month. Bagels are always fresh and selection of cream cheese is quite extensive. Haven't tried their lunches, but the place is packed at lunch time!!
