These are the best bagels I've ever had! So fresh, good crunch on outside, chewy on inside. Wonderful flavor. If you want a good bagel this is where you go. They opened another store many years ago in Watertown, but it closed. I was heartbroken. Glad they are still in Waterbury!

The bagels are good but no where near NY style bagels. Too round. Ball of dough? we want crispy on outside , chewy on inside. Flatter and more taste. I guess for the area its fine. Real bagel lovers should go to i84 exit 10 , Newtown to Bagel Delight. Delicious bagels and sandwiches.

A weekend breakfast favorite - fresh made bagels, you can see them in back. Many types & flavors to choose from, plain or flavored cream cheese or other toppings too. Breakfast sandwiches are popular too. Hot and cold beverages available also. Definately a favorite spot in this household!

Bagels are not standard New York Style, they should be thinner and more chewy. Actually Bruegers bagels are much better for a chain store. With that said it is the only bagel shop in Waterbury. Now and then I eat them. The cream cheese spreads are actually better than the bagels.

I went twice during my last visit to Waterbury, both times they were out of almost everything. They only had one type of bagel, no lettuce, and no tomatoes. I ordered the Waterbury sandwich, it was delicious even without half the ingredients. The second visit we ordered to go, and we ordered for a group of people. They left two... More

Great bagels are hard to find. When I read the reviews, I tempered my expectations as I certainly didn't expect to find any while on a quick trip to Waterbury. These bagels are fantastic! They are the only bagels that come close...real close...to my favorite bagels ever which are found at Lighthouse Bagels in Corolla, NC...but I digress. The bagels... More

I live in the East End and would rather drive downtown to see Frank at the other Ami's. The East main street crew is not at all friendly and many days border on rude. One of the two younger twins is friendly. That's about it. It's a shame because the bagels are so good.

Never in my life have I had a better bagel...always fresh and tasty, and the home made cream cheese is to die for...the bagel flavors are amazing...especially the french toast (add sausage, egg and cheese and you have a sinful breakfast sandwich). They sell baker's dozens so I always feel like I'm getting extra :) Highly recommend!!
