Favorite Family Place

Warm atmosphere, great bagels, breakfast sandwiches, brunch foods, lots of choices. Inside and outside eating area. Love the staff. Real home-town place to eat - favorite stop of high school-ers before school and families after church. Our favorite bagel place in town!

I used to live in this area and always return to The Bagel Cafe whenever I get back there. They have a great selection of bagels, spreads, sandwiches, salads and the best rice krispie treats ever! The thing I like the most is that they always remember me no matter how long I have been away. The service is quick... More

Had a quick breakfast and everything was excellent. The selling point here is the orange juice. It is freshly squeezed to order and if you like OJ it is highly recommended.

I was here for a late breakfast one morning and got the French Omelet. Although, it took a little while, I thought it was great...much better than I would have expected. And the homefries were delicious as well. I had always pictured this as just a bagel place, but it's so much more. They do lunch as well, so I'll... More

The Bagel Café is a popular breakfast and lunch spot right on Elden Street in Herndon. It is clean and friendly. The bagels are very good and the do not chintz on the cream cheese.

Nice neighborhood breakfast place. They have a large variety of bagels but also serve a good eggs and bacon style breakfast. Been here many times.

This place is a great place to grab a quick breakfast. Their bagel sandwiches are really good! Make sure you allow some time if it's a weekend morning because they get really busy!

Bagel cafe is a long standing breakfast and lunch location for the Herndon area. The food is great with obliviously a lot of different bagels and many more options to chose from. Their omelets are great (my favorite is the Russian) and their breakfast sandwiches are also great. They have great coffee with a special flavor of the day every... More

The service here is very good and the selection of bagels good - BUT - no way this is a #1 establishment. Lox on a "whole grain" was disappointing - the lox was not what one expects compared to NY/NJ portions and the bagel was ok at best. Sorry, Panera even has better bagels with more authentic taste. The food... More

Looked at the new signs asking patrons not to linger and please finish your cell phone calls before ordering. Love it . service has improved, bagels are always good. Now maybe more people can enjoy this place.
