I doubt that I'm the first to wonder about this so there is probably an existing thread that covers this.
However, I've been reading Chowhound daily for months so I don't think there's a recent thread.
I live in the southern part of Rockville ("North Bethesda").
I love going to Ambrosia and Ize's Bagels. The food is fine...nothing exciting but I really, really, like the owners.
Do you have any favorites where you go there because of the staff?
