Who doesn't love a bagel?

We came to eat here on a busy Sunday morning, although I'm pretty sure that every morning would be busy. The inside of the shop is relatively tiny with tables and chairs squeezed in so that there isn't much room to move around inside and unfortunately it was too cold to eat outside, but there are... read more

Easter Sunday morning … what a time to try and find bagels. I was in Herndon for my annual visit but needed something for breakfast. TripAdvisor had Bagel Cafe as the closest bagel shop, so I went. What fun; nothing but bagels … 30 different kinds. Ten different kinds of cream cheese. Friendly and efficient staff. Good, hot, and plentiful... More

If you are in the area - great place to try locally. I have been coming to Bagel Cafe off and on for several years - for some reason I thought I wrote a review previously, but could not find it today. I thoroughly enjoy local places and this is definitely a local place. The employees are friendly and kind.... More

Great bagels - not too dense or too light - just right. Smears were yummy too, although more than we could eat. Fresh squeezed OJ was tasty. Service was quick and friendly. Only thing I didn't like is that I'm not a local and won't be able to return anytime soon. Would go out of my way to have breakfast... More

Amazing selection of bagels, toppings and sandwiches. The best tomato basil I have ever eaten! A must for a delicious lunch.

This has become our favorite breakfast stop and also I enjoy the lunch Menue too. The workers are friendly and our food is good. Coming from NY these bagels match to NY bagels. The only negative thing is the seating is limited. On Sunday mornings it is totally packed and if the weather is nice sitting outside is available.

We don't go out for breakfast often, so had only been to this place about 3 times in the last 2.5yrs. I didn't know the menu well and have allergies, so after asking one question I had to make two modifications to my order. I really hated to tell the cashier my second change because I could see that he... More

I ordered the Canadian Scramble for breakfast and just had black coffee and I'm all set for the day. They gave us a HUGE serving of scrambled eggs with Canadian bacon and big chunks of potato hash. It was a very happy breakfast for me!
