We stop here all the time

Bagels and coffee are excellent! We get the day old bagels to take home. Grab a tub of cream cheese and you will not be disappointed (or hungry!)

Went to Brueggers for breakfast. Staff were nice, food was good, hot, and prepared as ordered. However, the restaurant was not very clean. There were crumbs in the window ledges. We also had to fight a wasp or two. Access was a bit difficult.

Being from New York we miss our bagels! Bruegger's is a great replacement for the sudden craving for some cream cheese and lox. Excellent service and the bagels have that crunchy exterior and soft center. Yum

I know Bruegger's is a chain, but we've often gotten bagels for takeout at both their Merrimon Avenue and Biltmore locations and found their bagels to be chewy and authentic. That's in contrast to most of the bagels sold by supermarket bakeries in Asheville, which bear little resemblance to a real New York bagel. For example, we just tried the

We moved to TN from NY where we used to get Bruegger's bagels (they don't have them near us in TN). We run down to the Biltmore in Asheville a couple times a year and always stop in at Brueggers for some bagels. We get several dozen with freezer bags and take them home to last till our next trip.... More

My friend and I fueled up at Bruegger's before a day of shopping. The variety of bagel flavors and items for breakfast made it difficult to choose. I had a spinach scramble with ham on a sundried tomato bagel and house roast coffee. The coffee was really good. Service was very quick and pleasant.

This bagel was nice and dance and chewy. Topped with cream cheese that had not been whipped or thinned out, it made for a great breakfast. And it was close to the Doubletree where we stayed.

I wish I'd realized this place was here a long time ago. The food in Asheville is very expensive and Brueggers has great sandwiches, bagels, and coffee at a very reasonable price for the area. We had breakfast here each morning before heading to the Biltmore. A great find!!

For some reason, it is hard to find good bagels in NC. Brueggers is as good as it gets in this area. Tip: Shop on Wednesday for nice discount. Buy a couple of dozen, slice, then freeze. Perfect every morning.

If you love "bagels" then Bruegger's is the place to go. I was not a fan of Bruegger's Bagel because they only seeded one side of their bagels, but now, both sides are done and there's plenty of seeds on all their bagels. Also, excellent foods to put on your bagels.
