I live in New York and I have been dying for a New York-esque bagel and Bethesda Bagel didn't disappoint! They're chewy, poofy, and delicious.

I ordered online (I tried calling but they only take online and in-person orders) and my order was ready less than ten minutes later. I waited outside very briefly and a woman asked me

So good! Huge selection. I'd suggest getting the bagel scooped just so you can fit more toppings!

One of the best bagel spots in the DMV!

The bagels are thick and chewy. They scream "Almost New York!" I've tried the breakfast sandwiches, lox and cream cheese but the veggie sandwich is my favorite. I get a toasted sesame bagel with veggie cream cheese, lettuce, tomato, onion, cucumber, sprouts and avocado. They always gener

I've been on this street before but never noticed the bagel shop until today because they had a ton of people waiting outside or in line. I figured that this place must be good and boy was I right. This is probably the closest I have had to New York bagels outside of New York. I am pretty basic plain bagel and plain cream cheese kind ... read more

This is a good spot to get bagels. I usually get their everything bagel with cream cheese and they are pretty generous with the cream cheese. I got their breakfast sandwiches a couple times but I'm not a huge fan of them. The sandwiches taste like they're missing something but I don't know what. I also had a slice of their pizza sinc ... read more

Great spot for breakfast or lunch - you can really customize it to your liking with all sorts of ingredients. They build your sandwiches to be worthy of two servings. I ordered custom breakfast bagel sandwiches here and had no idea it would be so packed with all my favorite ingredients. I had it for breakfast and lunch and was not hu ... read more

Oy, usually so good like 5 stars, but today's bagels are overly chewy and dry:'( were these leftovers from yesterday? I dunno.

Thanks for being open for us during these challenging times. It's comforting to know I can still get my fave everything mini bagels. Don't know if I could make it without those. And your egg salad is perfect. I can't make it better myself. I love the celery in it and the fact that it's not too mayonnaisey.  Hubby loves your mock chop ... read more

I’ve been searching forever for a legit bagel 🥯 spot here in Montgomery country MD and I think I finally found one! I would highly recommend!!
David hanley via google.com - Jan 13, 2020
The line that was out the door is a testament to how good their selection of bagels and sandwiches is, and I was equally impressed with how fast they got everyone through with quality food and minimal complaints. Good local bagel place, with lots of good bagel sandwiches for both breakfast and lunch. We will definitely be back.

I celebrated my birthday yesterday in this gorgeous place. Well we passed a phenomenal evening and the place was absolutely one of the reasons for that fruitful meeting. The stuff contributed in a splendid style, the cuisine was delicious and my friends were so thrilled. We shall surely return for more events. Thank you very much.

Смачні бейгли. Брали бегл з лососем, з омлетом та сиром та з намазкою з білої риби. (Три різні). Чудовий смак, смачна скоринка, свіжі продукти, усе просто супер! Біля закладу є купа лавок та столиків, де можна зручно поїсти на свіжому повітрі. Рекомендую!

Tremendous bagels, so delicious.  These bagels were so fresh.  Chocolate chip, blueberry, and cinnamon raisin were all great flavors.  Bethesda Row is great spot.  Service was quick.  Staff in this bagel shop were super friendly to me.

I love their lox cream cheese and my daughter loves their sprinkled donuts. The lines are always long but it's worth the wait. This is one of those places that you would label a staple to the community. I wish they would open a location in PG County.

We went here because we wanted to try their bagels. We recently got back from a trip to NYC and we wanted to see how their bagels compared. We got one plain bagel and split it between the two of us. We didn't get any toppings or spread we just got the bagel. It was crunchy and had a nice crust on the outside but on the inside it was ... read more

Better than Average
Huge variety of bagels freshly made on site Delicious assortment of spreads including flavored cheeses. A flat bagel called Flagel is worth adding to your purchase. Bakers dozen! Adequate parking! Strictly take away.

The bagels are great! Huge, very filling and such a variety of combinations to choose from. The only real downside to this place is that it is PACKED on the weekends. I would recommend ordering ahead for pick up unless you like long lines.

Delicious bagel sandwiches! It's a great place for a casual breakfast, but I should warn you that it's a small shop with no seats. The setup's not the most organized, as the line will snake around the room during the mornings when it's the busiest, leaving not that much space to stand when you're waiting for your order (which is why ... read more

Love their bagels - chewy on the outside, thick yet soft on the inside. An added bonus is that they have non-dairy cream cheese - I couldn't even tell the difference! Worth the wait.

Delicious bagels! I organized a breakfast for the David Munson Agency and surprised the team with fresh bagels from Bethesda Bagels! The one dozen bagels I ordered were reasonably priced, came with plenty of cream cheese, and were such a great surprise for our Monday morning meeting. Would 100% order again in the future.

I was very pleased with my egg everything bagels. I see why the place is always so busy. My one nit pick is that I wasnt impressed by their veggie cream cheese, but I'm not having that impact my score of the bagels.
