Love Einstein's bagels. Always soft, always fresh, always yummy! The line moves quickly and gets you in and out so a morning commute starts off well.

Many years ago I made bagels and typically they were always fresh in the morning either warm or hot out of the oven. That wasn't the case when I had them this week, they were cold. Plus it lacked flavor. I am surprised since I...More

A wide variety of awesome bagels. Great sandwiches. Reasonable prices. Try the french toast toasted with a little butter!

I would love to leave this place and a great review considering how many times I've stoped in for loxs bagels but it's often very crowded and loud. The good news is the food is good. So grab a bite to go.

Good bagels, fairly fresh if you get there early. When you get 12, they give you an extra one. You get free cream-cheese but you have to ask them for it.

This place is popular because the food is good and in particular, the bagels. Management is very cognizant of moving the line so putting resources where they are needed is standard operating procedure. It's a popular meeting place. Fnding a table can sometimes be a...More

We go through phases when we go here a lot then months without going. Parking is ok but the drive-thru, though a nice addition, makes the parking lot hectic. I did drive-thru a couple times and it took forever. Eating in can take some time...More
