|Fresh sausage was a plus, wish there was a little more seeds though.|

Here are some notes on my review of Knead Bagels:
1- The look... I have to say, when I first pulled the bagels out of the bag, they sort of reminded me of mass produced bagels. But, they did have a nice sheen. I guess they were missing a deeper caramel color that I was expecting. I would give the look a 2.5 out of 5 poppy seeds.
2- The crust... was quite firm and did have a bit of a crunch. There was no need for us to toast the bagels the first time we had them and took them home. The second experience was consistent with the first; the crust had a pleasant bite. The crust gets a 5 out of 5 poppy seeds.
3- Inside Texture and Taste... I have to say the interior texture was pretty on par with what I would call a great bagel. It was not overly doughy and certainly not dry. The flavor was pretty balanced; I didn't get a sense of salty or sweet. I'll rate this a 4.5 out of 5.
So, the overall rating for Knead is: 4.0 out of 5 Poppy Seeds = Very Good. I will definitely go back, I'm tempted to try some of their non-traditional flavors. Lemon Goat Cheese, yes please.
Till next time,
