Though it looks like a recycled Dunkin’ Donuts with its pink, brown, and orange color scheme, and though there’s slightly more available than the name lets on, there’s no question what the highlights are here. Classic beef is the best of the six varieties of bun-stuffers, arriving juicy, flavorful, and cooked just as ordered. A turkey burger is nicely seasoned, its slight dryness best offset with avocado from the dozen-plus toppings. Veggie, salmon, chicken and portobello mushroom are some other options. Want fries with that? The onion rings are your best bet, as the limp, soggy potatoes are truly disappointing. Cupcakes—a choice of twelve—stand out for their moistness and buttery, not-too-sweet icing. You can also indulge in cookies, apple turnovers, brownies, and cheesecake. The spot is open for breakfast, too; maybe lunch hour wouldn’t be so crowded if the area office workers knew that. But perhaps adding “bagels” to the name proved a bit too unwieldy.Recommended Dishes
