    I am not surprised to hear you are disappointed. black coffee, overpriced, like every Starbucks on earth. No reason to waste money there, bagels or not. I try to avoid all these chains spreading out like pest.

    And speaking of Rolling Pin, went to Ludwigs German Bakery across from HyperMart for coffiee and sandwich. Saw a Rolling Pin menu on counter and I inquired about that. The clerk said Ludwigs has been sold to Rolling Pin. New Rolling Pin sign to go up soon.

    Go to the Rolling Pin, they have pretty good bagels, plain, and with either white or black sesame seeds.

    Checked out the new Starbucks next to Gerry’s today. I was disappointed, downstairs small, cramped, uncomfortable chairs, coffee ok but 15p higher than the medium cappuccino at Bo’s. I am unable to climb the stairs to check out the upper level.
    I actually went there to have an everything bagel and cream cheese. I requested toasted well done and crispy like I enjoyed them everywhere else, uI received it soft, probably microwaved.

    I love those bagels at the RP. However, if I happen to be driving by Starbucks AND parking is available, I will (would) definitely stop by for a coffee and an everything bagel with cream cheese. I did that once. The problem is, I drive a car and not a motorcycle thus ruling me out as a customer in most restaurants in downtown Dumaguete due to lack of car parking spaces.

    Someone mentioned Ludwig’s so we went there this morning; they have sesame bagels and we bought a dozen & purchased cream cheese across the street at hypermart. The bagels taste great. Thanks for the information.

    I know what you mean about the white flour. White rice is not good either with its high glycemic index and tendency to build insulin resistance. But once in a while...;-)
