“What I have loved is that we have so many regular customers, weekly and daily, and regular weekenders. There’s a variety of people who come in and set up shop to work, hold meetings or do homework,” Fester said. “I love that people see us that way — a comfortable place to get good fresh food, made from scratch in house, and they can hang out. There’s no urgency, they feel at ease, feel at home and comfortable.”
Barry’s Bagels also offers catering for large and small events. You can place your order online have it delivered to you between 10 a.m. and 2 p.m.
