Reviews for Ess-a-Bagel

Ess-a-Bagel is the first bagel shop where human looking robots serve you. Too bad the friendliness or hospitality modules never got installed. Their fresh everything bagel probably tasted great yesterday when it was made. But at least the coffee was good. It brought back memories of going to a bank branch and drinking watery complimentary bank coffee.

I normally like essa bagels being a local, I felt comfortable enough to grab my breakfast in the area like I normally do. I grabbed McDonald’s and I looked at the outside tables (they had 6 available) I wanted to just eat my breakfast and be on my way. No sooner did I sit down, but the male staff dude came out and said miss you can’t sit here, that’s not our food. There was literally no one else outside on the other 5 tables. I was so disappointed, and I will full review
The aroma pervading from the freshly cooking bagels made it impossible to not go inside and experience the origin. The variety of bagels, sandwiches, cream cheeses, and other various toppings allows for infinite possibilities. I went with my "go to": poppyseed bagel, regular cream cheese, freshly smoked lox, capers, and red onions. It was perfection. My fiance had an everything bagel with jalapeno cream cheese; which was delicious but I'd recommend incorporating lox. full review
