I wrote before about my first impression of Einstein Bros Bagels restaurant and coffee shop. It wasn’t necessarily bad, but it wasn’t good either. It would be fair to say that I thought it was just ok. I’d like to take this opportunity to say I was wrong, and I am sorry.
I have since been to Einstein several times, and have been happy with each of these subsequent visits. It turns out that my hunch was right – stick to what Einstein does best and order a bagel. Upon the recommendation of a friend, I ordered something I probably wouldn’t have ordered on my own, but I am thankful I was turned on to the deliciousness of the garden veggie spread on a toasted Asiago cheese bagel. They toast the bagel perfectly and don’t skimp on the spread, making each bite better than the last. Especially the bites in the middle where most of the spread seems to end up.
In addition to their fantastic bagels, the coffee is good too. I’ve ordered several of their pumpkin lattes, and they are hot and delicious each time. I’d like to try something else at Einstein, but now that I’ve found the Asiago bagel with garden veggie spread and their lattes, I doubt I will stray too far. I am happy I was able to make peace with Einstein and see what they really have to offer.
