This place used to have some of the best bagels in a 100 mile radius. Since the new owner took over, they've become some of the worst bagels I've ever had. Misshapen, bad texture, cracked during the baking process... It's a shame to see what happened to what was once the best bagel you were going to find save going to New York to get one.
I took my young daughter there to get a crumb cake for her and a lox bagel for me. We sat down after ordering and waited. And waited. After realizing that someone who ordered after me got their food (after inquiring what was taking so long), I went up and asked about mine. They hadn't made it. They had to find my ticket. We had already been sitting for 20 minutes at that point. A guy quickly made mine and we headed home. After two bites, I bit in to something rather hard. Turns out the salmon was old and had turned hard. I spit it out and removed the rest of the salmon. It was discolored, so there's no excuse for them not noticing it had gone bad. I used to love going there, but I don't think I'll be back after that experience. I gave two stars only because my daughter really liked her crumb cake.
