Aroma bagel$$$ in CG

Enheduana | Feb 4, 2006 07:20 PM

Had a bizarre experience at Aroma bagels on Henry and Union in CG. I went in to see what they have and was a bit taken back at the prices. $14 a pound for whitefish salad, $12 a pound for egg salad and so on. I didn't want to spend all that money considerring they sell excellent whitefish salad for half that price at Fish Tales so I just ordered 2 bagels. When I got them I asked the guy how much I owed him and he said $5! He then laughed and said no, $1.40. I don't know (or really care) if he was making fun of me for asking prices on food and not getting any or if he was making fun of how expensive they are. Either way, I doubt I'll ever go back since the bagels were solidly mediocre and the food is way too expensive for what it is. Does anybody have a different opinion or reason to go there?
Thanks for letting me share.
