Best bagels and challah around

This place excellent bagels and fabulous challah. So much better than Kupels and all other bagel shops. Though I would avoid the Babka, which is way too sweet and covered in icing.

We had not been in years to this bagel haven and thought to give it a try - we found the bagels thick and doughy - will never compare to Iggy's, in my humble opinion, but a very popular place - We also bought a raspberry Danish ring that looked superb - the place was extremely busy on a Saturday...

Wife and I went here for lunch. The place is a small house turned into a sandwich shop. You can eat curb side or they have a few tables inside. I had the pastrami which I did not care for. The wife did like her reuben better then mine. But for the price they charge we could have paid gas... More

These are wonderful bagels, but too often when I visit I end up finding that they have run out of flavors I want to buy. Popularity has its dark side. The Challah is fantastic. Be aware they only take cash and this is an entirely take out operation.

No question that these are the best bagels in the Boston area. (Pro tip: if you order in advance they will make whole wheat everything bagels - always the first to disappear at any brunch or kiddush lunch!) But they've become known for their outstanding challah and are one of the few bakeries to make a whole wheat challah. Pretty... More

We stopped by here this morning on our way back to western ma. Great, authentic NY bagels !!!! Quick service and great prices. I could have spent mych more money but contained myself to one dozen. The best sesame bagel I have ever had.

Love the bagels. LOVE THEM. Love the honey walnut cream cheese. Like how they slice them and give you freezer bags upon request. Lox is tasty.

We really enjoy these bagels. They are deliciously fresh and the cream cheese assortments are great. I tried an olive one and it was amazing. We will definitely go to this place again. I only wish they were open more days!

This is a bagel shop, and not the best around. Finagle is much better(less than a mile away). The bagels are OK, but nothing special.

Get the bagels warm from the oven, first thing in the morning and you don't have to go to New York for the real thing.
