Spot Coffee - Delray Beach

Went in this past week. I ordered a ham and cheese. For starters the girl said what is that? Didnt know they had that on the menu! Took half hour to get it and the girl at the end of the counter where you pick up your food (she was covered in tattoos in case managemwnt is reading so they know who im talking about) was giving me attitude the whole time and not 1 apology! Food was ok but they seriously need to work on their staff. I give them until oct/nov tops. No way they'll be able to survive after the summer with people like that working there

Montreal Bagels in South Florida

I am from montreal and had a hard time finding good bagels down here until a few years ago when brueggers opened in boca. They are the best bagels I have had outside montreal. I used to live in ny as well and they are better than h & h or any other place you can bring up there. try them out

need review of the new "brooklyn water bagel" store in Delray

had to try it out.. really nothing special. I know they have been making a lot of noise but they're bagels are not that great. I've suggested Bruegger's in Boca on the board before, go check them out! Best bagels I've had in South Florida and I've eaten at probably every single bagel place down here

Anyone have any details?

Breakfast in Boca

Bruegger's on federal is not to far and they have the best bagels around! It's close to mizner and you can walk around there

Bruegger's in Boca

been going to Sage for years. Even though Bruegger's is a chain, their bagels are much better than Sage. They boil their bagels first, and even though I'm sure Sage boils and bakes, still isnt as good.

Bruegger's in Boca

They opened up this week, and I had to go try them out. Went twice! Great atmosphere. Hot bagels that they boil first! No one does that down here. I have to say it is definately the best bagel in south florida, or at least that I've tried and I've probably been to them all. Herby turkey is great, and I also had a soup salad duo the second time which is great because you can create your own salad.

They're in boca on federal hwy and 20th st in the 5th ave shops

noodle shop near central station amsterdam

When I was in amsterdam a few years ago, there was a noodle shop right near central station across from the water. It was on a corner, and very very busy. I think it was run by israelis. Sorry I'm being vague here, just remember it being very good and wondering if its a chain. Thanks

If you can, please let me know, I'm very there!

christina's greek in pompano great site with reviews on practically all southflorida restaurants..

how does this place compare to kostas? Kosta's is probably some of the best authentic greek food i've ever had, but i find it very heavy and can still feel the food the next day
