The menu is simple and filled with signature items like bagels, sliders with fries, and a lot of pies and pastries. Since it’s really hard to find good bagels in the country, seeing them on the menu, we got excited. So, we ordered the chicken, caramelized onions and cream cheese bagels, chicken sliders with fries, salad and bacon on the side, mint lemonade, and blended mocha.
The chicken bagel with caramelized onions and cream cheese is pure heaven! The chicken is coated with the perfect seasoning, cooked to perfection, and then smothered in a delicious cream cheese sauce. The bagel has tons of crunch from the sesame and poppy seeds.
