Wanted a quick lunch and stopped in after the lunch rush, had 2 slices and a drink for 5.49. The pizza was very good.

Went their for breakfast last week - got a egg/sausage/cheese on an everything bagel with a coffee. Good bagel sandwich, maybe one of the best I've had in the area. But doesn't come close to the good stuff back in NY. When you have the word "Brooklyn" in your name you have to expect to get measured up to New... More

Although I am not sure that the bagels here merit the long lines that I've encountered, they are very good bagels nevertheless. They have some of the sweeter kinds like French toast, but I think they do the classics best, like poppy seed and onion.

We had a family event and used this bakery for food trays. The trays were beautiful. The bagel good and nova excellent. The trays also included whitefish salad and tuna salad. Everything was nice with ontime delivery

Hard to get a seat on the weekend but well worth the wait. Growing up Jewish in NY, bagels have always been a big disappointment to me in DC, but I must admit, Brooklyn Bagel has changed my mind. Try the everything bagel or the pumpernickel and for a special occasion jalapeno cheese.

My wife and I visited this place 3 years ago. When we knew we were coming back to Arlington we immediately had this in mind for breakfast on Saturday morning. The line is long but it moves fairly quickly. They did have more seating than I remembered, but it can be cramped. Very cool to be able to watch them... More

Attended on a sunny Sunday morning. The place was bustling, but with plenty of indoor seating there was still room. We were lucky to grab a seat on the pavement outside, so enjoyed the sun and watched the world go by. There is a varied choice of fillings, I had the egg cheese and bacon. The bagel was fresh and...

Had breakfast last week at Brooklyn Bagel and was surprised to find such good bagels in the area. Enjoyed pumpernickel bagel with nova and cream cheese. Prices were really reasonable. Added bonus of being able to watch bagels being made while enjoying breakfast. Wait in line to order then find table. Friendly staff. Busy.

The bagels were excellent. They were fresh, large and had good flavor. The egg was well cooked but the sausage lacked good flavor and seemed of less quality than the egg or bagel. What lowered their rating is the dishonest pricing. We were charged $1.50 more than the posted prices. There is no excuse for that.

Great selection and service. Fun to watch them make the bagels right there. My husband found this on a review website and we were not dissappointed.
