If you'd like to be insulted and get an awesome bagel...

Marx Bagels is an experience. And it's not for the faint of heart. The staff is curt, bossy and quite often - rude. But - it's all in fun. I don't know how "PC" this is - but it's a Jewish bagel shop with lots of Jewish things like Challah bread. They have a ton of bagels, lox, cream cheese and all sorts of stuff. You can buy Marx Bagels at some Bigg's locations...not sure where else. They're good.

I stopped in the other day and got my standard. Salt bagel with 1/2 egg salad and 1/2 tuna salad. The tuna salad used to be Weight Watchers recipe - not sure if it still is or not - my friend says it tastes the same...so maybe? I have to get 1/2 & 1/2 because all of one would be too much - but the split is nice. And truly - unless I'm really hungry - it's nearly two meals!

On this day I also tried a cookie. They aren't made on site - come from another state per label. Honestly - I didn't like it. I didn't realize that it wasn't probably just a regular old sugar cookie...it was drier and not as sweet.

I love Brueggers and Panera - but sometimes - I like to be bossed around while waiting for some fantastic tuna salad.

And if you think I'm kidding - once I walked in during the winter. Someone came in behind me in shorts. One of the main guys hollered "Heads up everybody - somebody from Kentucky just walked in...talk slower when you ask for his order."

I totally laughed...
