Walked to Sams from the Hotel Indigo on Saturday Jan 21, 2017 for Bagels. This was the only place i could locate that was within walking distance. It was a 1.3 mile walk one way but it was an easy walk and enjoyed seeing downtown Baltimore early in the morning. They had great bagels and coffee. Very clean and friendly.

Great bagels, great coffee, great staff, great neighborhood of Federal Hill. They are obviously a local favorite.

We stayed at the inner harbor and walked to Sam's in about 5 minutes. The coffee was great and the bagels were very good. We may return tomorrow before we head out of town. The walk was through a residential area so it had trees along the way that shaded our walk (it is already really warm out there!).

Very small place and very busy in the mornings and on weekends. They make a sandwich called Key to Lox which is their cream cheese salmon bagel which is pretty damn good. Their breakfast bagels are average. They have good local coffee. It's a little expensive for the quality but super convenient for bopping around Federal Hill.

Sam's Bagels were so delicious. Freshly baked, great choices, simply so good. Perfect neighborhood place for breakfast. Went back there for an entire week while attending a conference.

The best I can say is that these are better than grocery store bagged or frozen bagels. Beyond that these are mediocre mass-produced chain-store bagels. The dough is produced elsewhere and get the final cooking at each location. . The quality is only fair. At times, some bagels are slightly undercooked and the inside gummy. They often run out of...

We thought we'd hit the Crossstreet Market for some breakfast, but we weren't impressed with the morning options. We ventured up Light Street to see what other options were available and happened upon Sam's Bagels. Walking inside, the smell of the coffee welcomed us. There were about 6 tables, 3 of them open. The bagels were made fresh in the... More
