    Cute decor. Fun bagel names... Try the vegan tequila sunrise. Note: ask for your coffee to come out with the bagel, otherwise you'll have no sips left while you eat.

    " Work/Study Experience " - 3, "Food & Service" - 3. This Pavement House has average space but gets very busy during the afternoon and can be challenging to find a seat. WIFI is limited to 1 hour.

    We're not sure which is more impressive - the famous toffee cookies, piled-high sandwiches, carefully crafted coffee or the incredible knowledge of Pavement's baristas. Either way, it's worth a visit Read more
