Just ate lunch at the Hot Bagel Company, as we do on every visit to Oak Ridge (once or twice a year). The bagels are superb, better than any we can find anywhere in Iowa. I'm not sure that bagels I've had in New York or Chicago are any better. The owners are the Sullivan's, Donna and Tom, and are... More

I am a very experienced bagel eater, and these were the best I have had in a non bagel area of the country. A NY bagel has a thin chewy outer later that is rarely copied elsewhere. If you aren't used to NY bagels, these are certainly superior to most. I like how my smoked salmon was hand sliced by... More

Love hot bagel! Would eat them daily if my diet allowed. They are fresh, they are good and the owners will give you a daily smile. Again, as a hotelier, it is a place regularly recommended and a product that we use on a regular basis

Hot bagel offers the very best New York-style bagels anywhere in East Tennessee, also some fantastic rustic German breads on certain days of the week. There are lots af shmears and great grilled panninni sandwiches too. Mz. Donna rules the kingdom. As the signs say, "This ain't Burger King. You get it MY way or you don't get it!" (Not... More

The bagels are fresh and delicious, and their hand squeezed orange juice is fantastic. I visit at least once a week, and I have never been disappointed with the food. The owner is a wonderful lady who sets the example for how to run a small business. Hot Bagel is Oak Ridge's finest.

Had a pizza bagel which was good, a plain bagel with cream cheese. and a cherry turnover. The bagels were nice and fresh and chewy and the cherry turnover was fresh and delicious. The service was fine. The decor can only be called "eclectic." Not to my taste, but lots of things to look at.

I prefer bagels and cream cheeses here over Panera Bread. The bagels are more like New York bagels, and real cream cheeses - not spread blends like Panera.

Liked it overall but didn't think their egg salad on a bagel was too tasty last time. Nice people though
