“Best Breakfast Spot in Bristol Area”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 10, 2012

We can't go to Bristol without hopping down to Bristol Bagel for Breakfast. The atmosphere is just so small town, New England. Grab the paper and and a chair. Watch life in Bristol on a lazy Saturday or Sunday and enjoy a great cup of Joe and incredible bagels. I love this place. Just a warning...it's popular and gets crowded.

“Delicious and always fresh bagels.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 29, 2011

Great bagels and muffins. Also a nice place for lunch. Purchasing bagels to take home is always an option as well. The staff is very friendly and it truly is a homey atmosphere. Highly recommend and family oriented.

“Convenient Location”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 22, 2011

Nice place to take a morning bike ride to or walk to after church in the morning. Many varieties of bagels and similar breakfast items (cinnamon buns, etc.). There is usually a line, especially when all the churches get out. It's a good place to go for a simple breakfast and to really get the "downtown Bristol" feel. There are tables outside so you can watch the Hope St. hustle and bustle.

“great bagel sandwiches/selection of drinks”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 30, 2011

Every time i've been here the service tends to be on the slow side (almost always a line). Only once tried the tuna and found it foul, when i told the counter-person, she at first questioned my judgement, saying no one else has complained-- did not appreciate that (customer is always right! you'd like to try?????) but she did then make me a new sandwich (not tuna!). The turkey, chicken salad sandwiches are good. My little ones love nutella so i'm grateful for that. also a great selection of beverages. another downside is the price of sandwiches, just a tad pricey for what you're getting but bristol is a college town so maybe they want to overcharge students who knows? if you know you want a bagel, go here. just don't complain or you'll be questioned.
