Being an ex-pat, I have discovered there are no good bagels in CR. The store looks promising with lots of choices & cream cheeses,but the bagels are frozen & they are bricks....super dense. My advice, go to any of the panaderia (bread shops) and get what the locals have, Save the bagel craving for back home :)

We picked up assorted bagels to have bagel and lox for breakfast. Every thing was great...except the bagels which did not taste fresh!

It isn't bad, just not someplace I would regularly go. The quality of the food is not consistent, and they take the fast out of fast food.

If you want a good bagel, or sweet treat, this is the place. Easy to find, and well within your budget. Wi-Fi? You bet!

Coming from NY I find the chain bagel places a huge disappointment. The bagels taste frozen, not properly made fresh daily. Sorry, not a great experience.

This place makes great bagels! Just like back home... The prices are a bit steep but well worth it. I like it best for breakfast, they have some good combos. Especially the Tico Combo, which comes with gallo pinto, a drink, and a newspaper. Biggest Caveat: parking. Very limited and very tight.

Their cofffee was nice, but the food was a bit pricey for what it was.
