Read thru the reviews and I can see some of the criticisms so I call it as i see it. This is an island bagel shop. It's not Starbucks, it's not Hortons. You're not going to get artificial bouncy service. That said I thought the service was fine. The ladies working the counter will talk to you you if you... More

I agree with other reviewers. From the moment we walked in it felt like we were inconveniencing them. The woman who took our order was about as unfriendly as you could be. She took our order and then barked at us repeatedly to SIT DOWN! Very rude and off putting. When my wife approached the counter to ask for a... More

A fun little place in the middle of a strip mall. They do things "their way" which adds to the experience. Great pancakes and omlets !

Great food, fast service and friendly staff. What more could you ask for? How about very reasonable prices too? This place has it all. I am truly sorry we waited and visited this restaurant on our last day on the island because we would have stopped it more than once. The food is fantastic and is served hot and surprising... More

Don't be fooled by the bagel sign. They serve the most amazing fresh blue berry muffins! We also enjoyed chocolate chip pancakes and blueberry pancakes. Everything was made fresh and served quickly. Highly recommend !

Our first morning on the island we were looking for a place for a latte. They said they have them here - but interestingly enough, there was no espresso machine. Turns out they have a tiny (home type) espresso machine and it takes about 10 minutes for each latte. It was very evident they wanted our money, but really didn't... More

I thought a bagel is a bagel. This place changed this thought in my head. The bagel is soft and tender and flavorful. Kind of a home time kind of place in the midst of tourism. A sight for sore eyes. I had a egg and bacon sandwich. A half would be plenty. If you can and enjoy doing this,... More

At 7 am at opening, one would expect the bagels to be warm and fresh but they weren't. But the really odd thing is they look like bagels but taste nothing like a bagel. They taste just like a dinner roll.
