⇢ Bagel Basket in York is a comfortable, homey cafe

If not for the exchange of currency, breakfast at the Bagel Basket is a little like breakfast at home – with a house full of guests. The breakfast and lunch cafe and coffeehouse on York Street is located in a Colonial-style looking home in York Village. It is set back from the road, and benefits from a welcoming, comfy courtyard, flower boxes on the windows and a dominant chimney that towers above the village. A well-lit sign and a red, white and blue “open” flag by the front door announce this as a business, but otherwise the house could pass as a residence. It feels kitchen-comfortable inside, as well. The shop is divided into two rooms – the kitchen and counter area to the right, a small dining area with tables, chairs and stools to the left. A central fireplace stands between the rooms, and opens to both. Wide floor boards and decorative trim suggest the age of the house. Offerings include bacon, egg and cheese on an English muffin ($4.50), pumpernickel bagel ($1.04) with cream cheese and an apple fritter ($1.84). This is an extremely busy place. As York does not allow formula restaurants, a place like the Bagel Basket offers the quickest and most convenient place for coffee. Food traffic is constant.
