Always good

This place is a great bagel joint. They have a good variety to choose from, my favs are the spinach and the jalapeno. I just eat them plain, and to go as I pass it on my way to work. I have never seen the place empty. There are tables inside (and outside) so people are generally reading the... read more

I am very picky about how my bagel is cooked - well toasted (not burned), filled with mounds of delicious cream cheese. When I visited the Herndon, Va., Bagel Cafe the other day, I was blown away. Not in YEARS has anyone been able to present my bagel exactly the way I like it! Marcus at the cash register waited... More

If you go on the weekend beware, the line will be out the door! It is worth the wait though. The bagels are delicious, fresh and soft. The staff has all basically stayed the same since they opened. They offer fresh squeezed OJ, all manner of sandwiches (melts and otherwise) and salads. They care about the food and it is... More

Been visiting here for 13 years, mostly on the weekends. Great egg platter and sandwiches. French toast is available and so are pizza bagels, but they aren't easily found on the menu. A pound of chicken salad and 6 bagels is a bit pricey but completely worth it. My wife likes the coffee, which they change flavor daily.

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 tables out there.

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
