    Mixed review. Food was well cooked and flavoring was satisfactory. They were out of medium roast drip coffee so I requested a refill- which took about 15 minutes while 4 employees stood around talking. I ate in but wasn't asked if I was dining in or to go so I was handed a brown paper bag. Table was not clean when I sat down. Love the vibe of the place and it was very friendly and welcoming. Seating is comfortable, a mix of booths and tables. Lots of customers coming and going so you know the place is popular. Bathroom were clean and handicapped accessible with grab bars. No stairs going into the establishment.

    This was my first experience this past week and I'm sad I haven't been here before. Walking in, it's much bigger than anticipated and boy do they have a large selection. I got the campfire coffee, iced and it was delicious. I also got an egg and cheese with ham on a garlic bagel, a hash brown and a cinnamon roll. Everything tasted so good! The cinnamon roll tasted homemade, not sure if it is or not but it was the best I've had in I don't even know how long. The associates up front were all friendly and genuine. The atmosphere is so nice; very quaint.

    This is a quaint little bagel shop in downtown DeKalb. They have a good selection of product, with several unique flavors, such as Hawaiian, though everything does kind of taste the same. The atmosphere of the place is nice as well, though they could do to play music or something create more of an ambiance, and the staff is friendly and attentive. The issue here is the value for what you get. The portions are small for what you have to pay and the quality of the ingredients is a little suspect. For instance, I got a spinach & egg bagel and the egg was cooked to in a microwave and, as a result, it came out rubbery. And I got a “bagel dog” as that sounded interesting but the bottom was so overcooked I couldn’t bite through it and the hot dog was shriveled and gross. Overall, I’d stop in for a drink and a bagel to go, maybe even a sweet treat, but their sandwich option are underwhelming to say the least and far too expensive for what you get.

    Stopped in while walking downtown and thought the food was unique and fresh. Had some bagel sandwiches and put together well. Only negative is the seating area was very dirty and we were dining in. Basically all the tables were full of crumbs and overflowing trash bin. Probably a better place to take out all things considered but overall would give the place a shot

    I have enjoyed the bagels at Barb City Bagels. I have had the Asiago, the Pretzel, the Sun Dried Tomato, the Jalepeno and Cheddar, and the Hawain thus far. My favorite bagel is the Jalepeno and Cheddar. My least favorite due to the saltiness is the pretzel one. And that is because I tend to only taste the more abundant flavor. And if you are a coffee conesour you can enjoy Iced Coffe, Latte and many different sugar free and cream options that are self-served. I usually just add Vanilla and sometimes Carmel to my coffee. There is also outdoor seating that you can enjoy from the outside seating of Tavern on Lincoln. Dine-In is also available.
