They have the best baked goods around. Home made bagels and muffins, bread too. They will make you something to make your mouth water. Friendly, too.

I am giving 4th. St. an "Average" because I don't think it deserved a "Very Good". If there was a "Good", I would reward it that. Anyway, I never tried the place before until my wife suggested it the other day. I was not sure what to get so I just haphazardly ordered a BLT/Turkey on the sour dough bread,... More

Great place to catch up on work with a great cup of Macha and a beautiful blueberry scone. Will definitely come back.

My son and I often make a weekend trip for breakfast or lunch to this friendly establishment. The baked goods never disappoint, and the atmosphere is relaxed. They do run out of certain items by midmorning, so make sure you get there early for the best selection.

Made a quick trip to grab something. I'm a vegetarian and they don't have a large selection but I left full and satisfied.

First time here. Stopped in around 10:30am for a bagel and coffee. Service was fine, nice coffee selection as well. Even had 2 choices for decaf which was a nice surprise. Good amount of seating inside and they had plenty of sandwich options for lunch as well. Overall, they were helpful and the bagel and coffee were good.

Many times they are sold out of bagels by 8 in the morning. When you ask if there are more coming out the answer is always no. I can't believe they can stay in business that way. And don't even get me started on customer service. The owner doesn't reserve her rudeness for her just her staff. She spreads it... More

Terrible, terrible, terrible customer service. Stopped in to place an order and the OWNER told me to hurry us basically because the line was to the door and I was taking to long. I am a frequent customer here 3xweek and last year I quit going for 6 months because of the rude owner and her staff. I just decided... More
