New Orleans, LA
finding Artz Bagelz was a bit of a challenge because it’s on the side of the furniture store. Maybe a sign or something that says “This Way” for directions-challenged ppl like me. New Orleans def needs a bagel shop and so I’m glad that this business is here to fill that niche. They have a dozen or so flavors available. The bagels are on the smaller side for what I am used to but I was excited nonetheless to try out this place.
i like the ambiance. it’s youthful and very clean. it’s like eating your paperbag lunch on the playground during recess in elementary school.
My friend had the breakfast sandwich with ham, egg, and swiss cheese. she said it was pretty good. My own preference, I don’t like the egg yolk fully cooked when going for sunny side up style.
my friend had the garlic bagel while I had the asiago cheese bagel. we both agreed that we would’ve liked our bagels to be toasted more. our bagels were still cold but full of flavor. I think they would’ve been a bit easier to chew if they had been toasted longer but again that might just be my personal preference for toasted bagels.
i had the chicken salad sandwich with garlic herb schmear on asiago cheese bagel. The garlic herb spread was delicious. The chicken salad was minced and pretty typical for a chicken salad. My sandwich was supposed to come with cole slaw or chips and I had asked for cole slaw but it never came out…..
