We went here on a nice Sunday morning for breakfast. Ordered TAB and Big Hog bagels with coffee. Yum! Prepare to wait as the place is always busy.

The bagels were delicious - Although a little less olive oil would have been good! It’s really nice to be able to watch how the staff prepare the dough and all the process of bagel making!
