I have traveled the globe and this is absolutely the best bagel I have ever tasted. I have eaten their bagels for more than 10 years and I keep returning for the chicken club classis on a grilled works bagel. My wife and daughters have shared my 10 years of great bagels. We tried the NY and Chicago, the England, France, Italy, and Germany bagels and there is no comparison. The secret is the fresh soft chewy inside with the grilled buttery outside. Don't worry about the lines. They are an indicator of how great the place is. OC locals will only wait in line for a good thing. This place is worth the wait. I like the outdoor seating and eazy parking. I have known the honest hard working family owners for 10 years and they are the greatest. David, Michelle, Irena, and Billy, not to mention their wonderful mom serve with that special family touch. My favorite is to stop by on SAT morning with the wife, have a sesame bagel grilled in butter with rasberry cream cheeze and read Corky Carrolls OC Register surf stories. My wife likes the grilled chicken club on a works bagel grilled in butter with their special honey sauce. my daughters like a smoothie with their bagels. See you and your family there this weekend!
Pros: great taste, great prices, great parking, great service, great ownership
