I ordered a gluten free everything bagel with butter to which I was informed they do not have a GF toaster, I decided I’d take my chances since I was already in an environment riddled with gluten particles everywhere. The bagel is small, comes frozen which I was informed of, and is very thick. I feel I’ll have a hard time digesting this and will not eat balsam bagels for their off shoot gluten free bagels in the future.

The company I was with sucked so I didn’t have the chance to really look over the menu, knew they had a GF bagel though. Hopefully today’s a reminder that I don’t need gluten or them in my life.

As per cost, he had ordered a lox bagel with potato salad and a large coffee, lox was $8.00, coffee estimated at $3/4.00 which means the bagel which was subpar was also around $4.00 as he said our total was $15/16.00.

Grateful to have eatten today but really wish I had different company who made me laugh and giggle as I enjoyed a bagel I haven’t had in years, instead of the person who rubbed it in my face that I’d needed bread when the staples of breakfast are eggs and meat, and the bagel I’d gotten wasn’t to my liking. People suck and it sucks that food makes me sick too.

Gluten free bagels are frozen and made somewhere else. They’re very doughy (after roasting them myself at home), have very little flavor and are tiny. The staff did know to change gloves and seemed knowledgeable and the cream cheese was good.

Variety of flavors- I took home a pumpkin and plain. They are frozen bagels that they get from another company (didn't catch the name). Staff member changed her gloves and asked if it was for a gluten allergy (knowledgeable). I took them home frozen but she did offer to warm them up. I toasted them at home.

Different consistency than Udi's- I'm not sure which I like better. They sell my favorite cream cheese as well which helps the flavor of the GF bagel.

Very good gluten free bagels in a variety of flavors. Unfortunately no gf toaster, but great to take bagels home. Also a huge variety of cream cheese including vegan!
