What A Bagel (Spadina)

Posted by Staff / Posted on May 28, 2012

What A BagelThe What A Bagel location near Richmond and Spadina gives off a new edge compared to its nine sister locations in Toronto. With ceiling to floor windows overlooking lower Spadina, this beautiful corner bakery & restaurant offers a 5 page eclectic menu with endless breakfast, lunch and dinner options. Highlights include eggs couture, Jerusalem Toasts, deli sandwiches, sweet rugelach, packed salads, and even a decent wine list. Of course, there's also their signature fresh bagels baked daily.

What - A - Bagel at Richmond & Spadina is often a go to lunch spot for our office but they really went above and beyond for me this week. Donating more bagels than you can shake a stick at, I was able to raise my first chunk of funds through an office lunch fundraiser. Thank you so much Isaac at What - A - Bagel (on Spadina and Richmond), for getting the ball rolling and supporting local offices & the charity I am raising money for!

I've written the full story on our office blog: http://artscom.tumblr.com/

At their 808 York Mills Road location, every time I go there the staff are rude and unpleasant. Today I walk up to the counter with bags of bagels and the clerk says to me "What?". And she gives me this look like my being a customer there is an inconvenience for her. After ringing in the sale she asks "You want the receipt?" and I politely replied "Yes please" and she rolls her eyes like it is a hassle to give me the receipt. I hold my hand out to take the receipt, and she throws it on the counter while walking away.

I was going to meet my girlfriend for lunch at what a bagel today but walked out after waiting in front of 4 staff without so much as a "hello" from any of them. When two people walked in behind me (I was standing in front of them) one of the servers looked past my shoulder and asked the people behind me to sit down?? I waited for about 12 minutes in front of the 'please wait to be seated sign' and I even tried my luck in front of the every-so-observant counter staff - again without even a gaze.

This is by far the worst service I have ever encountered in Toronto. I will not try my bad luck again.
