So, I watch Food Network religiously. One show that just got the boot is called "Restaurant Makeover" and I especially enjoyed it when it first came on air. Then, the show started to get more and more annoying, with really egocentric interior designers, chef's with a bit too much "know how" and each restaurant I saw renovated looked more and more like the last one they did. Ok, I'm off on a tangent here, so back to Bagel World. I pass Bagel World every time I go to Costco Warehouse. Located on Wilson Ave., just west of Bathurst, this morning, I took Miah there because I have constantly driven by it, and it had been on "Restaurant Makeover". You'd think after a restaurant's been on t.v. like it has, they would keep up the inside standards not just with the decor but the food as well. I got the small lox plate with a toasted sesame bagel and it was just, o.k. Nothing special. Bagel's here are thick and chewy. Lox looked like it could use a little more color, it had a sad pale orange pallor. And the cream cheese---wow, it was a huge ice cream scoop of cream cheese that could be spread on 5 bagels, not just my 1. Miah got her eggs over easy but they were really runny. Coffee was just decent. Service was with a smile. I can not recommend this place nor would I ever go again. My curiosity has been sufficiently assuaged.
