    I’m not sure if “stuffed” is a reference to the dish or how I felt after eating, but I’ll take a food coma for the cornflake-crusted challah slices layered with whipped strawberry cream cheese. Read more

    For the “Italian,” a ciabatta is piled high with Genoa salami, capicola, mortadella and provolone, glistening with an enjoyably acidic red wine vinaigrette. Read more

    The new Breakfast Sandwich is AWESOME! The pumpernickle bread is ridiculously good and the side of potatoes are delicious! And only for $7.50. Just found my new break from shopping spot.

    The food here is great: if you're looking for a delicious lunch spot, try the goat cheese BLT, the avocado salad, or any of the flagels.

    As a New Yorker, I have pretty High standards for bagels. But this place is great! They've got a huge selection of bagels and artisanal cream cheeses. The sriracha guava cream cheese is amazing.
