You could drive around in traffic until a restaurant sign draws you in, but we've got a better idea. Each week, Johns Creek Patch picks a great restaurant either in town or nearby that is worth checking out. Here's this week's choice:
While this popular deli specializes in bagels in almost any flavor you could possibly want, it also features pancakes and french toast hot off the griddle, breakfast platters, pastries and an extensive variety of lunch sandwiches. Plus, the cream cheese is the creamiest and fluffiest you'll find in town. The cozy restaurant has an almost retro-diner feel and offers free Wi-Fi, too. Tip: Get there early for fresh, steaming hot bagels.
