Bethesda bagels in my favorite place to get a bagel outside of NYC. They are always fresh and delicious.

It is pretty busy on the weekends, but they do a pretty good job staying organized; especially when it comes to picking up an order placed online. On weekdays there isn't too long of a line, but if you visit on a weekend I

Bagels were yummy as always! We ordered our bagels on Saturday 9/19 at around 11 am through the website and once our order was ready we headed to the store to pick them up.

Unfortunately, the employee getting the orders was a bit rude. Before I could even tell her my order number, she held up her finger at me and ignored me w

The bagels were great! We got a baker's dozen and got a variety of bagels including cheese, seasame, and plain. The were thick, chewy, and made great snacks for later in the day too. They are also very very busy, but they move relatively quickly, which is nice. Next time, I definitely want to get a bagel sandwich, but their bagels de ... read more

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

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 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 also had a slice of their pizza sinc ... read more

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.

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!

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.

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.
