Just across the way sits Elephant & Bagels, which as the name suggests is a purveyor of bagel treats. I visited with a simple set of requirements in my head: bagel and soup.With an extensively comprehensive array of styles, I alighted upon a wholemeal bagel with which I requested their filling of the week, pesto chicken and mozzarella.
The soup was tomato and basil. It was a reliably good effort.The bagel was very good, although it was unusual to see the cheese being melted to molten runny-ness in the microwave prior to it topping the chicken.
So overall, I was quite impressed by Elephant & Bagels. It served me a tasty bagel and pretty good soup, in smart surroundings. I’d be comfortable pointing you in the direction of place.
