in­clud­ing this one in Jupiter, that serve a va­ri­ety of bagels, muf­fiffins and sand­wiches.

AT­MOS­PHERE

With dé­cor evoca­tive of all things Brook­lyn, the restau­rant is set up like a fast­food eatery, with chairs and ta­bles very close to­gether. You order your food at the c ounter. Dri nks a re s el fserve, which can cause ad­di­tional con­ges­tion. Din­ing out­side is a good op­tion, weather per­mit­ting.

MENU

Bagels are the main­stay, but there are other op­tions: bialys , muffins, omelets. Lunch in­cludes a va­ri­ety of sand­wiches, in­clud­ing egg, chicken or tuna salad, ham and swiss, and roast turkey. Menus do vary ac­cord­ing to lo­ca­tion.

OUR FA­VORITE FOOD/PRICE

Does Brook­lyn wa­ter make a difffffffffff­fer­ence in the bagels? I don’t know, but ev­ery­one en­joyed the cin­na­mon raisin bagels I brought home ($6.49 for a half dozen). My 201 N. U.S. 1, Jupiter, 561-277-9757 (visit www. brook­lyn­wa­terbagel.com/lo­ca­tions/ for other Palm Beach County lo­ca­tions)

Daily, 6 a.m. to 3 p.m. hus­band went all-out with his Jer­sey Boy bagel ($6.49), which in­cluded egg, Amer­i­can cheese and ham on a plain bagel. It was a lit­tle messy, but tasted won­der­ful he said. The ba­con-and­cheese omelet ($8.48) was tasty and came with hash browns, a bagel (I chose asi­ago — yum!) and a choice of mixed fruit or toma­toes.

REA­SON TO GO

A fresh bagel with cream cheese is a great way to kick start the day. Get there early for the best se­lec­tion. I plan to go back for a bialy — they were all sold out the day I was there. Be­sides the Jupiter store I vis­ited, there are lo­ca­tions in Palm Beach Gar­dens, Lake Worth, Boyn­ton Beach, Del­ray Beach and Boca Ra­ton.

SER­VICE

I got my order to go, but ser­vice was friendly, quick and — most im­port ant — ac­cu­rate.

NOISE LEVEL

I stopped by on a Satur­day morn­ing and it was crowded. Ev­ery ta­ble in­side was taken. It was very noisy, but that’s to be ex­pected in a busy break­fast place.

KID FRIENDLY

Very ca­sual. Kids will have a great time here. I saw sev­eral fam­i­lies with lit­tle ones when I stopped in.
