Foursquare Tips

  • The soda selection is ok but not nearly as good as at joeys soda and snacks at 1946 w montrose
  • Really great sandwiches. Good bagel selection. Cool staff. Always seems hot, though.
  • Get there by Noon for a bagel. They plan it that way so that they don't produce a lot of waste, and that's something I can appreciate.
  • Get there early if you expect to get your choice of bagels. Basically all gone except raisin by 11am
  • Albeit it was almost 1pm when I tried this place. One would expect a BAGEL shop to not run out of ALL their bagels
  • The ham and cheese croissant will make love to your taste buds.
  • Just stumbled in today, first time. Great food, excellent coffee & the staff was friendly. They clearly enjoy working there and it shows.
  • My morning office prior to my morning office. The best damn bagels outside of Skokie!
  • Go for the Honey Bunny smoothie. So good you'll want to make out with it
  • Don't rely on the big signs to decide what you want. They are often out of things and only cross them out on the tiny brochure near the register.
  • Voted best croissants in Chicago in 2011. Definitely the best ones I have had since I got back from France!
  • Bagels for dayz
  • Best coffee and croissants in the city. They've redone the interior too so it's much more inviting.
  • Great little place near the L, enjoyed the sandwiches and mocha
  • Absolutely love this place! They have amazing bagels with different choices of Jams. Coffee is good too.
  • Love the chai!
  • The BEST croissants. Hands down. Not kidding. These rival what you can get in Paris (and are big enough to split). Ham & cheese, chocolate, & almond are my 3 faves :)
  • 5 cheese sandwich.
  • Croissants!
  • Gotta get a cup of Colectivo coffee.
