good Bagels

I go to Bagels & Beans every once in a while and I am never disappointed. Although I like BetterBagels' Bagels more, Bagels & Beans has a greater variety in toppings. It can get quite crowded because it is a very popular place among students but I usually manage to find a seat. Service is also ok.

The whole concept of a bagel restaurant is both brilliant and innovative. The food, and the environment were excellent, while the waiters were polite, helpful, and very professional

Being coeliac all my life, I could only wonder about the flavour of those things called bagels until I happened upon Bagels&Beans in Leiden! The quality of the ingredients they propose enjoys high credibility as they do not hesitate to narrate the story of how they encountered each supplier. Their coffee is exceptional and, a dream to me, they sell... More

Don't like hotel breakfasts so we headed into town and found a friendly place just setting up. Bagels (of any sort), cream cheese, jams, sprinkles, ham, cheese, anything! Plus coffee of course.

Everything has biologic, animal friendly or fairtrade ingredients. It´s great for lunch, however it is usually crowded.

Bagels and beans is incredible. The atmosphere is warm and welcoming as is the interior. The staff are incredibly helpful and are always smiling. One can’t help but feel relaxed there. The coffee and tea menu items are fantastic and meet the average Dutch prices. The bagels are amazing. The variety of them and combinations of ingredients offers more variety... More

I didn't realize this was a chain and I was surprised because I was impressed at how tasty their bagel sandwiches are. Great atmosphere and service. Good coffee. Fast wifi. Nice location on busy shopping street.
