Great Place for Breakfast or Lunch

Good Food; Friendly Staff; Great Variety of entrees; Best Bagels in the area. Love their Pumpkin Bagels and Cream Cheese but only available during Thanksgiving Season.

Great breakfasts- try the Bagelwich - good coffee - fast service - Best seating outside, dog friendly. If you live in Lake Forest, in the Woods or on the Lake... this is a local favorite!

Got Bagels- enjoyed them immensely- until I took a look at the floors inside. Yuck- looks like they've NEVER been swept- let alone mopped. Maybe it was just a very busy day and they didn't have time. Then , went back another day, another different time- same thing. Translates to Management for not caring or something else?

One of my favorite places to go for sunday breakfast is B&B in MV. We always meets some friends and sit and talk outside or inside if it is a little cold. the food is always fresh and very affordable. they have lots of various breads and bagels and many breakfast specials. never disappointed.

It's a great place for breakfast! But not a lot of seating. I love the bagels here and the smear is very plentiful.

I have been a regular customer of the Lake Forest Bagel & Brew for more than 15 years. The volume of people that visit this place, specially on the weekend, is incredible. I occasionally have an order that is not quite right but when you serve hundreds of people daily a mistake or two is pretty incredible. If you are... More

Only ate here once but was very pleased with the service, timing and selection of salads. I wish we had a similar place in Minneapolis

We have been getting breakfast and lunch since they opened WAT BACK WHEN. Still a great product but prices seem to have gone up more than the rest of the restaurants. I believe a bagel is now $1.19 which seems like a lot as they have not improved or changed anything,

Sandwiches are good, big variety but staff is not always great and can be a little abrupt. This place is always busy but they do a good breakfast and the bagels are good.
