Because, to put it simply, I want my breath to smell as terrible as possible before noon.
The atmosphere hasn't changed a bit over the years, the place looks and feels the same. In a time and place where restaurants come and go with the seasons, I have to say it's almost a relief that places like the Bagel not only exist, but persist to offer classic dishes, quickly, in a no-nonsense manner, and always with a side of pickles. I've had the pleasure of eating here twice in the last month with sorority sisters from Knox, and let me tell you, it is such a treat to be able to share old traditions with new friends. Not to mention, we all grew up eating here and can now continue to dine in each others' company. Most recently, I ate with Carly, and it was an absolute blast. We were laughing non-stop! And after, we popped into Hanig's Footwear for wool socks, and left the store with discounted Hunter wellies for $30, because they were the display shoes - naturally, we loved the deal.
