I don't care that Noah's is a national chain - they're still great! I love their selection and specialty bagels (pumpkin? sundried tomato? chocolate chip?) They have tons of options for shmears and toppings, and if you are hungrier, go for a bagel sandwich with turkey or other meats thrown in. They have soups, sandwiches, and other options as well. It's a great place to grab a bite on the go, or stop in with a friend for a morning nosh. The New York decor and cozy vibe make it a comfortable and familiar place. Also ... it's cheap!
Pros: tasty, cheap, consistent
Cons: parking, not good for sit-down dining
