Trying to find a better than 'good' bagel in Bangkok is difficult, for reasons like ingredients, water, etc. Thye will never be the same as a New York City bagel. However The Bagel Bakery has one of the best in Bangkok. They are full, chewy and resemble bagels, like very little or no hole in the middle. Some bagels in Bangkok look like donuts, more hole than dough. The cinnamon raisin had a flavorful taste and full of raisins. The garlic and the salt and combo bagels were tasty and full of topping. This restaurant also had and made bagel sandwiches, which I did not try. A small selection of desserts and we were told more to come over time. Usual drink fare, coffee, teas, cocoa, juice, water and soda. I did not see any frozen drinks. The interior of the restaurant was good size, clean with about 3-4 tables and a couple outside. Now, the Cafe is about 500 meters down Ekkami from the bus station, so a bit of a walk from the BTS station. The bagels are higher priced at 45 baht/bagel, one free with 6, still comes in as the most expensive bagels in Bangkok that I have seen. The spreads and cream cheese are small cups at 45 baht, very over priced. If you are in the neighborhood, best to buy 6 and get one free and store the extra in your freezer or fridge. And buy your own cream cheese/jam/peanut butter. Definitely worth a visit if in the area, or buying a quantity to take away. Not sure you need to venture there, when you can also satisfy your bagel urge elsewhere. .

There were a couple inaccuracies we wanted to address:
-Our sandwiches are normally served on a fresh-baked Italian sweet bread, although we will put them on bagels if the customer requests it.
-The price of the bagels is 45 baht each, but there are two promotions: before 3:00pm, buy 6, get one free; after 3:00 all bagels are 30 baht.
-The shmears are 25 and 40 baht (depending on which spread), not 45.
-There are 4 tables on the first floor, but there are also sofas and coffee tables on the second floor and free WiFi for customers.
