This place is great for outdoor breakfast! They have great bagels (especially the pizza bagel) and coffee. I like to bring dogs to sit with us outside!

I have frequented this establishment many times over a period of 5 years, both personally and for business lunches with colleagues. I have found that the staff and management are not personable. I have looked past their personalities based on the quality of the baked items (especially the faccacia bread) and the yummy club sandwich. Truly the service has impeded... More

I have been going to City Bagel for breakfast or lunch (and the occasional Italian night dinner) for more than 20 years. Until recently, the restaurant was owned and run by Mary and Joe Tkach, but they trained the new owners so it hasn't changed very much, and that's a good thing. City Bagel has always been known for its... More

We got there at just the right time on a game day Saturday. They had a game day bagel (maroon, of course!). Bagels were good. We've also been there for Italian night, very tasty as well. Pizza bagel was yummy, as was just the plain butter & cinnamon sugar.

Can't go wrong with this spot, fresh bagels made & cooked daily. Great for coffee/breakfast in the am and also offering a "brown bag" Italian nights Wednesday - Saturday with delicious pastas. Pastry chef is putting out some amazing stuff! A must visit.... A+ spot!

I ate here today with my former department head. I placed my order for a veggie sandwich on foccacia bread and a cup of corn chowder and had barely had time to get my water and sit down when my name was called. My lunch companion said "That was quick," and he was right. I took one bite of my... More

Most importantly, the bagels were great. True bagels -- boiled and all. I would return, but only on a slow day. We went the Sunday after a MSU game day and they were unprepared for the volume (although I would think this is standard on game weekends). They take your name on your order, not a number, and they call... More

The name is very deceiving for this great dining location. They do have great bagels but the dinner options are phenomenal. On selected nights, they have Italian night where they offer some of the best Italian food menu items you will find anywhere including thin crust stone fired pizzas. The atmosphere is very casual but comfortable. Outside seating is available... More

Best Gazpacho Soup in Starkville. Sit outside and bring you pup. They will even provide a dog bowl and water. Best Italian in Starkville on Italian night Wed-Fri. Bring your own wine. They provide the corkscrew and wine glasses. Fun evening with lots of locals dressed in everything from formats to shorts and tshirts.

Love this place! As a graduate student I like to come here in the mornings and work. This place has a very relaxed atmosphere. It's common for people to bring their dogs to the patio and just hang out. Their bagels are amazing and freshly made every day. My personal favorite is the sun-dried tomato but this is a hotly...
