I was secretly hoping that Tony Scotto would change the name of his popular café from Towson Hot Bagels to Timonium Hot Bagels, after finalizing a move to the area earlier this week.

Scotto opened his third bagel shop over the weekend, with a grand opening celebration Monday.
On Tuesday, Patch had lunch at the THB Bagels and Deli of Timonium.
I hadn't dined at a THB since college, and frankly, didn't miss having to pay for parking in Towson. The bagels were good, but not worth the potential $75 ticket I was risking for not paying the meter.
I tried the Al Pacino sub Tuesday with a side of macaroni salad. I believe this best sums up my feelings about it.
The shop is larger with considerably more tables and it's a welcome addition to the lacking WiFi enabled dining spots of Timonium. (But more on that later.)
But enough about me.
How do you feel about THB making a move to Timonium? If you've already been to the new shop, which features a new menu—consider posting a review in our Patch Places directory here.
