Bagel Nash, Kingsgate Shopping Centre, King Street, Huddersfield, West Yorkshire
Bagel Nash is a chain of light eateries specialising in bagel foods. This branch of Bagel Nash is in the Kingsgate Shopping Centre in Huddersfield, in the open area near the House of Fraser store, and on the other side of the Costa Coffee branch. It is not inside a shop, but instead is in the arcade itself, with seating in a fenced off area. There is pay car park in the shopping centre itself.
The location was visited late on a Friday lunchtime, and was very busy at that point. It was busy enough that the server stated that it would be 15-20 minutes for the food to be ready, and asked if that was okay. However, the food took only about 10 minutes to be served.
You have to order and pay for your food at the counter and, should any items need bringing over when ready, you are given a number to take with you. You find a table and then wait, if required, for your food to be brought over. There are a variety of different bagel types, and a large selection of possible fillings, in different categories: Breakfast, Bagel Melts, Classic and Deli. Bagels can be bought to eat in or eat out, with those bagels bought to eat out being cheaper.
There are a some food deals available. Every week day has a certain bagel available for only £1.99. Another offer is to get a Deli bagel, a drink - Coke, Diet Coke or water - and either two hash browns, a bag of crisps or a cookie for £5.
The food ordered was a Smoked Salmon Deluxe bagel, The New Yorker bagel, a can of Coke, regular latte and two cookies, one with milk chocolate chips and the other with white chocolate. Each bagel was ordered on the £5 Meal Deal; although the latte was not listed as a possible drink on the meal deal, it was possible to get it for an extra £1, totalling £6, which still worked out cheaper than getting the bagel and coffee separately, never mind the cookie. Each bagel was sliced in half, toasted, filled and then made into a sandwich, which was sliced in half the other way.
The Smoked Salmon Deluxe was ordered on a multi-seed bagel and consisted of smoked salmon, avocado, rocket, mayo, lemon (juice) and pepper (ground). The New Yorker was ordered on a sesame bagel and contained smoked salmon, cream cheese. black olives, red onion, lemon and pepper. Both had plenty of fillings in them, which were fresh and full of flavour and were toasted just enough.
The latte was fine, and the Coke was in a can, so also fine, if a bit on the warm side - although ice was offered. The cookies were soft and flavoursome.
The total cost came to £11 for two people including drinks. The food was served much faster than was stated, and everything was fresh and nice. Bagel Nash was more expensive than a fast food restaurant, although not by that much, and the quality, and nutritional value, of the food was much better. Overall, Bagel Nash is a nice place for a light meal.
