My 4 Year Old Daughter and myself, LOVE the unicorn bagels. So colorful and delicious. Just a tip, you can preorder and pick up if you are having a gathering, which makes it really easy and convenient. Just remember to ask for them to be precut, if that's the way you like it.

There are 4 bagel places between my house and my office. I almost always choose Bagels & Brew when I am in the mood for a basic bagel and cream cheese, or when I am in the mood for a bagel sandwich. The food is always fresh, and the customer service is excellent.

Very popular bagel restaurant for locals where you have the option of dining in or sitting outside on the patio with friends.

This is not your typical fast food restaurant. It's great salads, sandwiches and bagels carefully and tastefully prepared at a quicker than sit down restaurant pace. On the weekends, this place is very busy and crowded. Patience leads to a great bite to eat. One observation--why is the music for the food preparation clerks sooo loud that you can hear... More

We have been coming here for years and years! I love the jalapeño bagel with Nova and egg! The place is usually jam packed with all kinds of people and their dogs.

Always enjoy Bagels and Brew. The menu selections are varied and the food is good. Sometimes a little slow but worth the wait.

Family took us here for breakfast and we returned on our own for lunches a couple more times during a brief visit to the area. The *huge* menu can seem daunting but it seems whatever you select will be delicious.

We have eaten here many times. Food and drinks are consistently very good = reason for 3 stars. Organization and customer experience suffer a bit. Most employees are very young and organization/ customer service can be good or not so good. Most employees are trying to do a good job but can get overwhelmed. Often there are long lines at...

Bagels & Brew is a popular place. The Bagels and the Brew are good. The parking is adequate. The atmosphere is above average. Fortunately, for the owners, a popular place with decent bagels and coffee is very very busy. Unfortunately, the staff has little to no oversight and appear to prioritize the catering orders rather than the customers standing in... More
