What Makes Them Bagelicious: The bagels, dubbed "the great round one;" have been baked fresh every day for the past 33 years. They are done the old-fashioned way -- boil the first, then bake them. There's also a nice assortment -- of both the "usual" suspects -- i.e. poppy, sesame, cinnamon raisin, pumpernickel, egg and everything, as well as oat bran, blueberry, cranberry, and sun-dried tomato. Folks also rave over the coffee and friendly service.
