  • Great bagels! Really enjoyed the salt and the whole grain everything! Jalapeno cream cheese was awesome. She though her bagel breakfast sandwich was one of the best she's had. Rainbow bagel was fun and unique. Only thing I wish is that they get some type of tables or seating available outside on the sidewalk (since the inside is so small there is no room to eat there). Wish we had bagels like this in Dallas.
  • Exactly what a bagel shop should be. Well stocked with good fresh bagels, chalkboard menu, and snappy service. Lox was overpriced, but a real treat. Nice place to just walk in off the street and grab a quick bite.
  • We are from FL and we were in Philly for a National Scholar banquet for my daughter. And before we ever got to Philly she found the tie dye bagels on pinterest, so it was a must. We got 2 tie dye bagels with cake batter cream cheese and my husband had the breakfast sammy with bacon, egg, and cheddar on a jalapeno and cheese bagel. Everything was great!!
  • Great bagels, just be cautioned if you're going there in summer - due to the oven - it's HOT in there. If you don't mind sweating for a great bagel at a fair price, this is your place.
  • Came here to Philly to see a concert one night. On our way home we just wanted a quick to go breakfast. Originally we had another place in mind but I got us lost so this was the only place that sounded ok. Good thing I got us lost. This place was a real treat. We got two regular breakfast sandwiches, one with cheese and o e with sausage. Bagels were on point (not dry) and everything in the sandwich just went together so well. I don't know what cheese they used but dang it was good.

Where to stay in Philadelphia

Most of Philadelphia's hotels cluster around the compact city center, ensuring quick and easy access to major tourist sights and activities. The only drawback to staying in this area is the lack of free parking, so if you're exploring by car, considering booking into a bed and breakfast in one of the city's residential blocks.
