Easy location and great bagels. Fresh and friendly service. Get a dozen to go on the way to work. Sometimes lines take about 5 minutes. Go early as they close before 5

Wish they were open later during the day! I appreciate their bagels and light cream cheese options. I think they have more seating than you'd expect.

Make sure to go before noon if you want a decent selection of bagels. That said, the bagels, schmear, and sandwiches are all very good!

Chain restaurant on Lemmon Avenue popular in the mornings, especially the weekends. Early morning singles and couples read the paper and have coffee and bagels. Mix of guys from the Oak Lawn gayborhood, Uptown couples, and post workout crowds. Some families with kids as well as seniors. Very busy so expect a line on weekend mornings and managed chaos. Staff is friendly and service is fast so long as you know what you want-- (Type of bagel, type of cream cheese, toasted or not, for here or to go, your name. Use a simple name if it's not).
Inside seating and limited outside seating available. Self serve beverages/coffee. Adequate parking most of the time, otherwise street parking. Seasonal muffins and bagels. Various egg & bagel sandwiches and of course lox and bagels. Regular and lite cream cheese choices.
Listen for your name when your order is ready and go get it. Remember if you shortened it. See above. Don't be the person who everybody knows your name because they heard it a dozen times while you were on the phone and weren't paying attention. If you have a large order or office party, you can order online and set a pick up time because nobody wants to be in line behind that person.

I really like the bagels and find them to be as good as the older bagel places in the area. Coffee is good too. My favorite are the jalapeños bagels with cream cheese, always one of my first and last stops when we visit from out of town.
