looking for a few good ideas

The Bagel Cafe

301 North Buffalo Drive,
Las Vegas,
NV 89145

This is a full on deli/restaurant, and if I were influenced by such things as the quality of chicken matzo ball soup, they would get an A. But I must be true to the bagels, alas. Their logo includes the motto, "Home of the Bigger Bagel" and unfortunately I must respond with the adage, "bigger is not necessarily better". This is against my better judgement, mind you, because the idea of a bagel bigger than my head actually appeals to me.

In other words, I'm not docking them points for size, but they're not getting any bonus points for it either. Overall they are pretty good bagels, but maybe a little too bready and not chewy enough. You could do a lot worse than picking up a dozen and having some chicken matzo-ball soup while you're there.

Grade: B+
