This place looks unassuming from outside, but the adventurous bagel and cream cheese flavors will NOT disappoint. And their coffees and espresso drinks are arguably the best on that bustling block! The woman who runs it is sweet, friendly and feisty. I recommend an everything-jalapeno bagel with egg and cheese, along with a large iced latte!
