Great local place

The owner really cares about her town and provides great conversation and great food! The coffee was delicious and the service was fast. If we ever get back to Oak Ridge, we will definitely visit here again.

Best pumpernickel bagels in the knoxville area. I used to stop by quite often for the muffaletta sandwich but they changed the recipe a year or two back. Can't recommend lunch here anymore

I ordered the salmon lox bagel was not fresh, the salmon was extra fishy and the whole thing just wasn't that great it seemed really expensive to

Hot Bagel hash the best bagels outside of NYC. Their food is always freshly prepared and tastes wonderful. The portions are enormous. When it comes to freshly baked bread you can't find it any better than Hot bagel

The walnut raisin cream cheese is wonderful and they put a generous portion on each bagel. There will be people waiting for the opening sign to flick on every morning so they must be doing something right.

Place is a great bagel shop, I had the chicken salad on a sporty bagel and it was quite delicious! They also have a wood fired brick oven. Friendly staff! OK... running out of things to say about a bagel place :).

Great bagel shop. It reminds of all the little bakeries from when I lived in New Jersey. Every time I have friends visit from back home we stop there.

My definition of perfect pizza includes a crispy thin crust and fresh ingredients. That's how they make pizza at Hot Bagel! Your personal pizza comes out of the wood fired oven (imported from Italy) hot and delicious. If you haven't tried their pizza, you are missing out. The bagels are unmatched also--nothing like the fake bagels served at nationwide chains.

The title says it all...the owner is a Steelers fan and won't let you forget it! Decor is very untastefully done with all the Steelers stuff all over the place, yuck! However, on the bright side, the bagels are fantastic...the cherry turnovers yummy...and the eclairs WOW. Bakery goods remind me of the NJ bakeries. They serve wood fired pizza, sandwiches,... More

I have been going here since Donna and her husband some 20 years ago opened in the Manhattan Shopping Place. First the bagels: they researched how bagels should really be made from the dough to the cooking method. I have eaten at the top rated places in NY and theirs are better than most you can find there. The bagels... More
