Beans & Bagels is the epitome of a neighborhood coffee shop—it’s on a quiet corner in a residential area of Lincoln Square. You can’t sit inside, but you can stare longingly through the walk-up window at the variety of baked goods on display. That includes some very delicious bagels, ultra-flaky croissants stuffed with chocolate or cream cheese, and other pastries like butter tarts. Beans & Bagels also serves organic coffee, which you can drink sitting on one of two outdoor benches while fending off the birds circling your breakfast sandwich.
