$0.85 each, $0.75 each for twelve or more. Our bagels are made from scratch "in-house" every day, at each location. Every step, from the mixing of dough to the baking, is done on-premises. We follow a traditional all-natural recipe, with No fats, preservatives, dairy or soy, and we only use unbleached, unbromated flours - for health, and for flavor. We boil our bagels just before baking, per New York style. (If they're not boiled first, they're not authentic "NY style"). Our "100% Whole Wheat" bagels are just that - they're made entirely from healthy 100% whole-grain wheat flour. We bake continuously - morning, noon, and night, so we can serve oven-hot bagels all day long

It’s a cville classic, one of the best cheap eats in town! Better than any bagel shop I’ve been to anywhere. If you’ve never been, you are depriving yourself of the finer things in life.
