The best bagel i've ever had and i love my bagels! There's so much spread to order from that it's actually quite daunting as you feel like you're going to cause chaos if you hold up the queue. Took one star off for service as we basically got shouted at for having the audacity to try and pay at the... More

The combination of a huge variety of bagels and spreads ensure even picky eaters come away happy. And the bagels are so darned good! Everything bagel with the bacon/scallion spread is virtually perfect. Salt bagels are so crunchy with salt they're almost hard to eat, but oh my how tasty... Good coffee and quick service adds up to an every... More

On a recent family trip to NYC we tried Brooklyn Bagel for breakfast. My wife eagerly volunteered to make the run to the shop for take out. She came back a little sheepish noting that it was intimidating to order food there. My reply, "Welcome to the Big Apple." Like many service establishments in NYC, Brooklyn Bagel's employees missed the... More

I thought I'd been eating bagels my whole life. It turns out that the approximation of a bagel that I thought was a bagel was hardly a bagel. Well baked outside, chewy inside, flavorful, huge. I had no idea a NYC bagel could be so much better than what I'd been eating. I had the egg bagel with jalapeño cream... More

Everything bagel with cream cheese, add some smoked salmon, NYC breakfast heaven. Place is always busy, but they keep line the line moving with an efficient system. Nice cup of drip coffee to boot. Eat here now!

Well overdue for lunch, we finally stopped to have a bagel. The salt one was VeRy salty but acceptable with a grill chicken cutlet in it. The turkey club and the salmon and cream cheese were also very good. A bit pricey as every extra ingredient (lettuce or even tomato) is charge 50 cents or more . Service ok, searing... More

So, I'm not from here. This was my first ever bagel from the East Coast - I've looked forward to this day. Now, granted, I have nothing substantial to compare this bagel to, as I've been told frequently by my east coast friends that any bagel made in the west, is not a real bagel. I ordered the sesame toasted... More

Tasty bagels but limited seating capacity and very crowded. But worth the wait. Numerous spreads to pick from.

Very efficient, quick friendly service. Being my first time, I was spoilt with choice! I had a toasted onion bagel with lox cream cheese - absolutely delicious! My daughter had a bagel sandwich (with egg) that was a real winner! Will get that next time for sure! So filling, good to share too! Nice fresh orange juice and great vibe.

Love their bagel with cream cheese, so much cream cheese, the bagel is big and chewy. The clam chowder was tasty but not enough clam. The line was long but they were very fast and friend, very helpful with our order.
