Serves up a pretty good bagel!!

Fortunately I do not live far from here and can walk as parking to get here can be a challenge. There is a lot in back but warning do not park there or you may be towed. There is metered street parking on Dempster and on Chicago Ave. The bagels are pretty decent but a little pricey. The menu is... read more

The excellent bagels are accompanied by very friendly service, terrific coffee, and lots of options for spreads and sandwiches. Good value and nice people.

Bagel Art has completely lost its character. It used to be a fun place to bring the kids, great vibe, lots of healthy choices. Somehow that is gone. And what kind of bagel store closes on SUNDAY?

THis is a classic bagel joint...bagels are delicious and they have most of the classic flavors, along with the standard toppings and the possibility of getting different bagel sandwiches. Not a ton of seating, but enough. Can get busy on weekend AMs.

We were driving around Evanston at lunch time which is how we happened upon Bagel Art. It looked appealing from the outside, there was parking nearby, and what's not to like about a bagel? Once inside, I was surprised at how very basic the place was. A board listed the 10 or so sandwiches that they offered on a variety... More

Brought our family here for our last taste of Illinois and what a way to end!! The menu was extensive and the food is prepared before your eyes. They substitute fountain drinks for a variety of beverages (such as all natural juices and teas) and they make a very original version of lemonade. The decor is artsy and they have... More

Bagel Art is my go-to place in the morning. I often have tea and a bagel with a variety of friends. The bagels are freshly made and taste authentic. (I'm a New Yorker, so I should know!) We sit or stand around a high perched table in the front of the shop, talking loudly amid five to ten friends. Often... More

Parking is really bad to get in and out. The one time I was there I got my bagels which were good and then went to pay and the conversation went something like this: Cashier: "Can I help you?" Me: "I'd like to pay for my bagles." Cashier with a little more attitude: "Who helped you?" Me: "That guy." Cashier... More
