Review: Best Ugly Bagels

I have heard a lot of great commentary about “Best Ugly Bagels” so decided it was time to experience first-hand.

Outside people populated all the tables, eating their delicious bagels and sipping their “Havana” coffee with delight.

All the crew were working industriously making these wood-fired bagels from scratch. Very impressive to watch.

In the shop you can opt for DIY or order Al Brown’s way. You can take out 6 packaged bagels (plain, poppy seed, sesame seed, cinnamon & raisin) with all the toppings to boot. Bagels cost $12.

I was dubious about the coffee as a coffee snob, however it exceeded expectation.

When I placed my order, the American-dressed, animated staff member forgot to charge me for half my order, so instead of paying for 2 purchases (which I didn’t mind) she cancelled the transaction saying the bank fees were to high, and punched in correct amount.

Made me smile.

She asked my name and announced on their in-house microphone. Just in case, I couldn’t hear, with the (bustling) crowds inside and out.

Too cool.
