Really delicious bagels. Fresh and chewy. Good selection of flavors on both the bagels and the cream cheeses. I have never had any of their other offerings but I am sure it is good too.

Brooksde is a destination place for just darn good breakfast or lunch. There is absolutely nothing uppy or chiccie her and the atmosphere is plain rustic but not charmingly rustic either. The food is always darn good, and the creme cheese & lox, breakfast egg sandwich or the veggie out wrap well are all one of the simple pleasures of... More

Brookside has great bagels, and they've earned a great reputation. That means they are crowded, which means they are always cooking more bagels, which means everybody that comes in is getting very fresh bagels, and those are delicious, which means Brookside stays popular. And crowded just means that the counter is always busy, you never have to wait more than... More

OMG I cannot say enough about this place. The bagels are so delicious!! We ate here every morning of our stay and were pleased to find out that they would ship bagels to us via next day delivery. We had both bagels with cream cheese and tried a couple bagel sandwiches - everything was great. We also had the "Juicy... More

Very good bagels and sandwiches and service. Could use a MAJOR interior clean up and makeover though. The last few times we've been in, we found it kind of skeavy and dirty looking. I would wonder how clean they are in the kitchen except for the fact that when you're ordering the kitchen is right there and it's clean, considering... More

This place is amazing. The sandwiches are great, cream cheese is yummy and I am not a cream cheese fan. Recommended - Turkey on an everything bagel with all the veggies or a cheddar bagel plain or with cream cheese - you don't even need the cream cheese!!! On the negative side - one thing - the line.
