Beats NYC bagels!

Keith is a retired NYCPD officer who has brought his passion for bagels to Kingsport! They are light, perfectly prepared and freshly baked throughout each morning. Breakfast and lunch sandwiches are superb with highest quality Boarshead meats and cream cheese blends freshly prepared.

My favorite bagel is the cranberry/orange with maple walnut cream cheese--it is the absolute best. The only thing I do not like about the Bagel Exchange is their hours of operation. I work nights and it is hard for me to get there by 2:30.

The Bagel Exchange has the best bagels and bagel sandwiches. They aren't the tough chewy bagels that most of us have grown up thinking what a bagel should taste like. I think what makes their bagels different is that they have their bagel dough shipped each week from New York. So you are getting a real New York bagel cooked... More

I was only recently introduced to Bagel Exchange. What a surprise! I love their food. They are very fast at getting your order to you. They are also very friendly. It's a great place to eat if you're downtown!

Locally owned and operated, this tiny restaurant is a favorite for local folks and everyone else interested in fast service for food that is not "fast food" quality -- but superb quality like you would expect in a good New York deli. Great food -- great conversation available.

My wife and I have been eating at The Bagel Exchange since the restaurant opened and we have never been disappointed. The food is consistently very good. The owner Keith is continually improving the menu, atmosphere and overall flow of his restaurant. We enjoy both breakfast and lunch and visit every chance we get.

I met a friend here for lunch. I thought bagels were heavy but thought I would try one since these got such great reviews. I was not disappointed. I had the egg salad which was great - the salads looked wonderful and everyone seemed to be enjoying their food. Very nice atmosphere and even outside seating when weather permits. I... More

If you love bagels, you won't be disappointed. The variety is excellent, and the house-blended cream cheeses are to die for. Bagel Exchange also has a nice selection of tasty sandwiches, but the fresh bagels are definitely the star.
