  • Found this place from Yelp and online reviews of delicious foods to try in Philadelphia. Do yourself a favor and spot by this place if you are in town. It is a tiny fast paced delightful bagel shop with in house made cream cheeses and the famous tie die bagel. I got mine with Honey Pecan Cream Cheese. Delicious!
  • Great great bagels! We tried everything bagel with avocado, cream cheese, tomatoes, cucumbers, sprouts. Wow! That was an amazing experience. Price equals quality and taste. Thank you for wonderful place! :)
  • I never feel disappointed enough to lease a review but this overpriced center city establishment gets one. I went during morning hours while the place was pretty busy (makes sense for a breakfast place) and was offered rude service, my order was inaccurate and extremely overpriced. I paid 7$ for a pork roll egg and cheese, in turn received a cold bagel with a slice of bacon on it and microwaved eggs. I guess if you're into paying center city prices for not so great food, this place is good. Save your time and stop at a cart on the corner, or go to DiBrunos across the street and get a quality 7$ sandwich.
  • Great place to stop by for morning coffee and bagles. Great staff and great location.
  • Fantastic bagels that go well with high quality lox and cream cheese. Lots of bagel sandwich offerings too, but for about 4 bucks you can get an amazing bagel with cream cheese of your choice. Definitely worth the trip.
