The best bagels yhis side of Brookly

We have been going to Hot Bagels for years. I've had bagels all over and these are at least equal to NY bagels if not better. They also have pletzels, delicious cream cheese with chives, pastries and coffee. I would drive to the shore for these gems rather than buy any other iferior product/

The fundamental East Coast bagel joint. Always fresh and every spread you would want. Solid lunch menu too. Better than NYC bagels.

They sell bagels (and stuff to put on them ). Period. Everyone goes there early to get very fresh bagels to take home along with spreads for them. Very large and chewy bagels like I grew up with in New York City. Long lines but plenty of service to get you out quickly. A must place for take out only.

If you like bagels then there is no better place to get them other than here. I have eaten bagels in many major cities including NYC and these are by far the best.

Excellent bagels but prepare for a wait on weekends as the line runs out the door. Great selection, fresh bagels.

Best Bagels Ever, and I'm from NYC. On a Holiday weekend, get there early before they run out. I have never had a bad, or mediocre bagel from this place. I wish they would supply all the stores in the area that sell "bagels."

Come early to avoid the crowd. The bagels are great. They make bagel sandwiches as well. In the refrigerated case there is an assortment of creamed cheese. The staff is quite efficient, so the line moves quickly. They do run out of bagels by afternoon.

My son took me to buy bagels and salmon salad. Ended up dropping over $50. because I had to have everything - cream cheese with vegetables, salmon, whitefish salad, and 5 different types of bagels. Best I have had since I moved out of New York 50 years ago.

I get that everyone crowds the place on summer weekends in the mornings.I understand you need to hire a young workforce to match the seasonality of the business. HB has become an institution, now more by default. Everything is good, the chicken/tuna/egg salads are great, but it is entering the field of battle that takes a way from this being... More

In the summer this place can be difficult. People know a good bagel when they try it. The staff is always friendly, youthful and typically in training, though endearing. The lines move relatively quickly, but if you are impatient either come very early or late (summer only). The winter is my time to relish the local activity around this place.... More
