Everything a bagel shop should be! The bagel shop in my hometown misses the mark with microwaved eggs and what a joy it was to have two meals here. We are artists in town for the weekend for the Bethesda Art Show. Two days in a row we have gotten breakfast sandwiches...day 1 toasted everything with scrambled egg and pepper jack, day ... read more

I've always wondered why this place is busy and I now understand. Their bagels are awesome! Sure, there is a wait sometimes but that didn't bother me at all! I'll wait for a great product and Bethesda Bagels has it down. Definitely check this place out!

Everything a bagel should be! Chewy, dense and fresh. They have a lot of bagel options and now they serve pizza, which is probably amazing.  Its not just a bagel and cream cheese place either, they have tons of sandwich options. It's always pretty busy in there  but they are pretty good as moving the line along. Bagels aren't just fo ... read more

Good bagels/sandwiches but a little expensive and the place has a horrible layout. From what I understand, its the original location and they do not wish to relocate so it is cramped on top of the fact It's almost always busy. Worth checking out for breakfast.

Best bagels in the DC area. Lucky to have this in Bethesda. However, expect mediocre service, LONG lines early morning and on weekends, and frequent mess up in your order. Always check your item to make sure they packed or made the correct bagel sandwich or item your paid for.

Sometimes the wait can be long, but the bagels are top-notch!

Good Bagels
If you are in the mood for a bagel and cream cheese, this will definitely do the trick, however, it is not best I've had. They have lots of bagel and cream cheese flavors and the pastries looked yummy!

Great Sandwiches, just get coffee from next door
Nice vegan options (tofu spread with or without veggie is really good). You can make is a veggie sandwich, which has lettuce, tomato, avocado, sprouts, onions. Bagels are top notch, portions are good. No restrooms. Coffee is from a machine that is completely sub standard....More ... read more

I was in Bethesda for the summer and this was one of the best parts! Most of the food I missed from New York could be found here. The bagels were absolutely perfect but I also have to shout out their deserts. Being able to get the cookies I miss from back home was such an absolute treat! Loved it and  may have to make a trip out from ... read more

What a great way to start the day but with a fresh bagel sandwich!

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. As I get older I'm more conscience of avoiding such foods on a regular basis. However, on the weekends I turn up. I don't party so food is my fun. It's lame but it is wh ... read more

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 love a good bagel, and I'm surprised Bethesda Bagels hasn't been part of my life until now. My friend and I came on a Sunday around 11AM and there was a line out the door!

I live in Brooklyn and have done so for the past 11 years. My family lives in Chevy Chase and I grew up in Potomac.
