Einstein Bros. Bagels

In a word: Have we mentioned that Madison has a lot of bagel places?  We have? Oh, then nothing new is contained in this capsule.

The specs: #0152
Address, hours & details via Isthmus; review at the Culinary Adventures of Jahboh and Tossy; official web site; Einstein Bros Bagels on Urbanspoon

JM ate the bacon egg & cheese frittata on a plain bagel with a cute little apple juice.
Nichole ate the cheese & egg frittata on a wheat bagel with a coffee.
The bill was $10, or $5/person, plus tip.
JM and Nichole both gave Einstein Bros. a B- (see our grading rubric).

It was an uneventful breakfast at a chain place, except when Nichole spilled JM's apple juice. She was trying to admire the adorable little round bottle when it rolled out of her hands.

Not much to say, really, except that Einstein Bros. bagels are too smushy. They almost shouldn't be called bagels. On the other hand, their "darn good" coffee is, actually, very good, and very hot, and the bottomless cup is a plus.

My girlfriend loves Martinelli's apple juice. I'd like to point out that the bottles make great loose change holders, although the people at the bank may complain about the width of the opening when you go to cash it in.
