They have some of the best bagels and cream cheese! Highly recommend the honey walnut cream cheese! They also have very good salads!

Clean place, friendly service and food was good. Had broccoli and cheddar soup and a roasted chicken with avocado sandwich. Good flavor but maybe a little pricey for soup and sandwich.

Food quality and speed was very good. Was somewhat put off by employees taking a smoke break out on the curb of the restaurant.
