Kelley Square’s Anthem Bagel Co. is Now Open

It’s been awfully quiet at 19 Kelley Square — home to Anthem Bagel Co. — and its likely because no one knows they’re open. Well we are here to change that.

Anthem Bagel Co. is now open Monday thru Friday 6 AM to 2 PM until they plan their grand opening. In the coming days, look for a deeper dive from TWIW into Anthem Bagel Co. and what they are offering.
