Kupel's is a classic. The bagels are great and they make wonderful sandwiches. In addition, they have a wonderful selection of Kosher pastries and other sweets. The chocolate Danish is my favorite.

Been coming here for 30 years. Whenever i come back to Boston, it is a must for me. Whatever bagel combination makes your fancy, they can do. And all are wonderful. They have a bunch of specials named after Boston celebrities and areas. I still...More

Delicious bagels- and wonderfully sweet and melt in your mouth challah. All kosher. Kids favorite are the black and white cookies, and the big chocolate chip cookies. Cakes are moist. Mandel brot, since my grandmother made the best, is wonderful. Here it is moist and...More

I am a regular at Kupel's. I usually go for breakfast on Sundays. They are closed on saturday because of religious matters. Everything I tried is very good. If you need a recommendation try their St. Paul or Coolidge Corner.

Kupel's makes the best bagels I've ever had, and their sandwiches are fantastic! I have been several times, and my favorites are the Fenway and the Longwood. Counter service is really fast. There aren't too many spots to sit, but most people take out here...More

Quick caveats: 1. Bagels should not have fruit, pumpkin, or chocolate. Bagels should not be green. Bagels should not be presented as a cute, clever thing with a bunch of fake Yiddish. 2. Real bagel places aren't open on Saturday, so if you show up...More
