Einstein Bros Bagels Restaurant Review: How a national chain creates such a neighborly feeling in each of its locations is a mystery, but Einstein Bros Bagels manages to do so in style. The bagels are pretty good, too, whether sweet or savory, served with a double-whipped cream cheese shmear or traditionally decked with Nova lox, capers and red onion. Breakfast brings egg-themed sandwiches and panini, while lunch expands on the theme by adding salads, soups and deli sandwiches to a roster of well-stuffed bagels. Those watching calories and carbs should look to the Smart Choices menu for “thintastic” sandwiches and low-fat salads, soups and smoothies. Service is generally quick, and most locations are open until 5 p.m. for an afternoon nosh. Other locations.
