David thought I wouldn't like it, I think because I'm not a fan of 2nd Cup which sort of has a similar cold vibe with its concrete floors and open layout, but I actually didn't mind Gold Bagel's atmosphere, maybe because it's smaller. I would come back. I ordered an Everything Bagel toasted with Cream Cheese, I wished they had lite cream cheese, but they didn't. The coffee was a bit bitter. I tried some of David's Cinnamon Roll and not bad. Overall I liked it, I would come back if I was in the mood for a bagel and sit down conversation. My favorite bagel run is Hot Bagel on Shepherd near Fairview, which is more of a in and out kind of place. Not the kind of place you want to sit around with friends. Anyway, that's my 2 cents.
