I stopped by Essex a couple of weeks ago (thanks to Chow Down Atlanta's heads up) . These bagels are massive, fresh, chewy and delicious. I fell in love with the Everything & Cinnamon-Raisin varieties (easily my favorites of the half-dozen I picked up that day). Pick up one of their flavored cream cheeses to go along with your bagels (I'm partial to Horseradish Bacon). A full breakfast menu (which includes hot breakfast sandwiches and three egg omelettes) is served all day. Essex is located at Johns Creek Walk, near the interection of Medlock Bridge & Bell Rd.
