Einstein Bros Bagels closed its Penn location in Houston Hall at the end of the summer, according to Business Services.
“Penn Dining routinely reviews the offerings on campus, taking into consideration current options in and around campus as well as feedback from our diners gathered through various channels,” Barbara Lea-Kruger , director of communications and project management at Business Services, said in an email. “As a result of that review, the decision was made to close Einstein’s at the end of the summer.”
In 2013, Einstein Bros was found to be in violation of several health codes, and has received relatively consistent poor customer reviews on Yelp. Nevertheless, lines in the bagel shop routinely circled toward the door.
The permanent replacement for Einstein has not yet been announced. However, in the interim, Houston Market will be serving breakfast options Monday through Friday from 7 a.m. to 10 a.m.
