Foursquare Tips

  • Lots of cute girls eat bagels here. Try to "bust a move" or buy them a bagel and maybe you will find love :-)
  • The Western for breakfast. Sara's Secret for lunch. The Cosby for dinner.
  • Freshly baked bagels; delish. Crunch and Munch is my favorite (pictured)
  • Try the Heisenburg, bitch
  • Get a Sara's Secret and add some Chipotle Tobasco sauce
  • If you went to Ohio or Miami University, GO HERE. You'll be back in college in no time, steamed bagel in hand.
  • Aiming to open next week, the Chicago Bagel Authoritys Lakeview branch is setting up shop next to one of the busiest L stops in town, offering on-the-go commuters specialty bagels
  • Highly recommend the Crunch & Munch. I rarely order the same thing twice, but this is one sandwich I order regularly.
  • Breakfast bagel sandwiches. Boom.
  • Steamed Bagels are the best way to eat bagels, and CBA makes the best bagels in Chicago.
  • The Bread Intruder is the best thing you'll ever put in your mouth. For extra deliciousness, add pepperoni (or salami...or both!) #NomNom (also ask for Honey or Spicy Mustard!)
  • Wednesday is BOGO. Dinner & Lunch. Breakfast & Dinner. So many possibilities!
  • Get a Go Local card and save 10% on every purchase! Go Local! Go CBA!
  • You can add bacon to Everything!
  • Watch Bears and Buckeyes and BYOB :)
  • The Oak Pork is my favorite!
  • Smitty's Nook is delicious. Tip these people too they're super nice.
  • Bialy or bust!
  • The Swanson Sandwich of Greatness is a hangover-abating mix of ham, bacon, sausage, roast beef, scrambled egg, hardboiled egg, smoked cheddar and American cheeses.
  • Bagel sandwiches are delicious, amazing decor, & friendly service
