Stand-up bagel joint with benches outside. Decent bagels with many flavours. Sandwiches are also available for breakfast or lunch. Lines can be long but it moves quickly.

The best bagel shop I've ever been to!!! Seriously can not go wrong with any breakfast sandwich or bagel/ cream cheese combo they have. They also do catering trays (pictured below) which are a big hit in our office!

If you're looking for a breakfast place in Bethesda, this is the place to go. It's located in the heart of Bethesda in a prime, pedestrian friendly spot. There's a parking garage nearby for easy access. I ordered the BLT with peppered salmon on a cinnamon crunch bagel, I know, odd combination. The sandwich came out amazing and tasted ... read more

Surprising little bagel place, has it's own identity in spades and yet keeps the familiar feel of a NY bagel shop. Very creative in its sandwich composition as well.

I'm from nj, and moved to sc. There's no good bagels for miles. I've been stopping by here when visiting a friend when i'm in town. They've been consistently good.

I rarely eat bagels or donuts because I feel like excess portions of either or both will cause my body to quickly transform into something resembling a sweet potato.

I moved to Bethesda from New York. I wasn't expecting much, especially after seeing "NY-style" highlighted in the menu, but overall the bagel was pretty good. I ordered an egg and cheese sandwich on a plain toasted bagel. The bagel itself was decent, but the cheese wasn't melted, just slapped on top. I placed my order on a busy Frida ... read more

I came here all the time when I was growing up--when prices didn't matter because I was a child. We would get breakfast, usually just a plain bagel with cream cheese but occasionally with the addition of smoked salmon, and I always had orange juice with it. We'd sit in the old Ram truck parked at the lot on the corner which is now an ... read more

Authentic, delicious, chewy, "meaty" bagels.  The cinnamon chips bagel was delicious, and I'm so glad that I opted for their sweet pecan cream cheese.  Even their plain wheat bagel was very flavorful -- and I don't usually like wheat.
