Back again for delicous fresh bagels, this time salmon and cream cheese. Delicous! Stopped for breakfast so at 9am Sunday still quiet. £5.50 for 2 bagels, tea and coffee. Bargain. Wish I'd bought cake for later. Great pre- shop stop.

I reas everywhere that this was a classic place in Brick Lane so I had to visit it. It’s a small shop with very good prices and an amazing salt beef but the service could definitely improved. Yes, I understand this is a busy place...More

When in London Shoreditch I always want to get a great beigel with salty beef because this is so good! And the best thing is that this shop is open 24 hours.

I'm not sure why people whinge about the service here. I had a very positive experience. Coffee was good as were the pastries. Typical East London eatery. Would go back for breakfast any day.

This place is the real deal. If you’re a fussy American tourist looking for chipper service that matches what you’re used to, this place is NOT for you. But if you’re after a bagel, not a vacuous smile and a vacuous chat, and one of...More

You can't visit Brick Lane without coming here! Their bagels are famous for a reason, so so good. My favourite is the salt beef bagel with mustard, absolutely delicious! A must try when in the area for sure. Staff may be snappy, but that's all...More

I've had them all- dumdum, crosstown, st johns, krispykreme. They are all ok, afterall it's just a donut but this one is out of this world and it's 50p. Nuts. No salted caramel, matcha crap. Straight up sugared filled with jam. Doesn't get any better...More

I've seen a review which says they don't do Gluten Free. I know they take cash only. Kosher? Is the pope Catholic?
