Poppy's Bagels & More
This place used to be so amazing but its rapidly gone downhill. This is a picture of lunch time: out of bagels, out of chips, almost out of staff. Every single time I come here the prices have increased while the quality has gone downhill. When they get my order right (which is rare) its usually on a burnt bagel or a bagel that has no toppings. I reached out to them (as a loyal customer since they first opened) & no one even bothered to respond. Take your business to the Good Wurst instead & get 10x better food for half the price.
If this is the best Charlotte has to offer re bagels / Jewish deli, then I'm sorely disappointed. Got a late breakfast here at 1115 or so - bagels are ok, but nothing like I've had in NJ. Bagel was not toasted, cheese and sausage ok, egg not so much. Bagels are certainly better than grocery store bagels, but leave a lot missing. Strongly recommend you purchase a poppy's dozen and then make a sandwich at home. It's worth a visit, but the cost of the breakfast sandwich and how it's put together warrant making this yourself with their bagels.
Please do something about the coffee. Hands down worst coffee Ive had, just disgusting. Place was very dirty especially behind the counter. One employee was eating behind the counter. Bagel was pretty good. Wish there was a menu of bagel topping options.
I used to love this place, but the prices are now through the roof and the quality is not what it used to be. Too many good places around to spend this kind of money. 3 stars because the bagels are still pretty good, but we cant afford to go here anymore

Great spot for a NY bagel and a schmeer! Terrific variety of bagels, cream cheese, fresh pastry. Feel like I'm back in a Yonkers bagel shop
