  • If you is real hungry this is a great street to get your eat on and shave the tiger of hunger. So many choices.  more »
  • Central and well equipped with various shops and places to eat. Recommend the factory store the GAP that in Italy is not cheap as brand as well as sporting goods stores really great.

  • This place is ridiculously slow. I ordered two bagels with cream cheese and it took 25 minutes. If you’re looking for a quick trip this is NOT the place for you.
  • 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.
  • Philadelphia is in desperate need of a good bagel spot. These guys are solid. The bagels are of average size, and the spreads and bagel sandwiches taste pretty good. By no means will this place blow your socks off, but they crank the bagels out pretty quickly, and it is a consistent place for me to stop on my way to work.
  • Amazing! I go here every morning. Bagels are fresh, delicious, reasonably priced. They are quite fast. The taste is excellent!
  • Cute small bagel shop with tons of creative bagel options. A bit pricey, but 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. Visitors planning on longer stays can also consider several apartment hotels, offering spacious furnished units with complimentary Wi-Fi, free bike rentals, and access to rooftop terraces.
