Best Bagel in Ellicott City/Catonsville

At 6 AM Sam's isn't too busy...best time to get hot bagels! The people are friendly and the selection is great. They aren't NY bagels, but heck, this isn't NYC. It's the only bagels that we enjoy in the area!

Staff is usually fantastic. Every now and then, you'll find a young adult there with a less than welcoming demeanor but it can... More

If you are looking for good quality bagels, with a nice selection of cream cheeses, drinks, and good coffee, Sams is your choice. Great friendly staff, especially Frankie.
