    Hands down best bagel in Cape Town.

    I got a delicious bacon, avo and tomato bagel this morning. It had plentiful crispy bacon, half a beautifully ripe avo spread on top, thinly sliced tomatoes and thick lashings of cream cheese. So good. The only problem is that the guy behind the counter (who was very dashing and charming) handled money, card machine, till etc and then went straight back to the food station to slice open and butter my bagel without washing his hands or donning gloves. Not cool!

    There are few things that make me happier than a simple dish, made well. Max Bagels do bagels, and they do them really well. I love that they offer a spelt bagel - which is for some reason fine for some wheat-free people like me - but has that hard-to-come-by soft, white bread texture. Their salt beef brisket bagel is spectacular with it's sweet and sour pickle and Dijon mustard. I work in the area, and have to ration myself to one per month to avoid myself from bankruptcy by bagel.

    Decided to give it a try before work. I think I was abit too early, but the guy was really accommodating. Great coffee and the best bagel I have had. Would really reccommend this to anyone who is looking for new things to try or who can appreciate great food.
    First rate food... Fresh, tasty and well balanced. Service was prompt and polite. We live in London and were just visiting Cape Town for a few weeks...only wish we had a bagel shop like this where we live because would definitely be a regular.
