3 stars (out of 5)
We added this to our tour of greasy spoons in the city, only because it has a typical breakfast special (2 eggs, home fries, toasted bagel and side salad – no meat) for under 7 bucks, but this type of breakfast is definitely NOT it’s specialty.
If you want greasy spoon, go up the street to Mars, The Sunset Grill or Good Bite, but if you want tasty pastry, bagels, cream cheese, lox and the like, this is your place.
Other locations of What A Bagel (my favourite is at Leslie and York Mills) would earn 4 stars for their quality of food and baked goods, but this one loses a star for it’s outdated and unattractive decor. It really needs a makeover.
