Actually, wellitsme, they do slice them; they just charge extra. Bought half a dozen sliced bagels at Brueggers and half a dozen sliced bagels at Panera in the same day. Half a dozen SLICED bagels are considered ""prepared"" bagels and are $8.46, three dollars more than their NON-sliced. Half a dozen SLICED bagels at Panera = $5.89. Brueggers, get a slicing machine like Panera's. I'd only go to Panera's if it wasn't for the fact you were so close by and had one kind of bagel I like that Panera doesn't have (but Panera has plenty you don't have).
Pros: bagels taste good
Cons: charge extra to slice
