The bagels were freshly made and tasty. I loved the fact there was free range chicken and good quality ingredients but it was slightly overpriced. One bagel would not be enough to fill you and there is not a huge amount of toppings. Was also...More

Some of the best bagels I have ever had, with the best toppings/fillings. I loved the decor, and the atmosphere in the spot. Would definitely go back again (and I did, three times during my stay in Auckland).

Go here every Friday morning for a bagel and a coffee and it is always great. King Salmon and the Mean Joe Green are the top picks but almost everything on the menu is good!

Located at the Old City Works Depot, Best Ugly serves freshly cooked bagels at reasonable prices. Be prepared to wait as the place gets very busy especially during breakfast on weekends.
